Help Michael hammer the BS (cancer)

Michael S. Mandella is the type of man to tackle any project put in front of him with an immense amount of determination.  Fighting cancer is going to be no different!  He is also the type of man to never hesitate lending a helping hand to anyone around him, despite his own situation.  Now it is time to lend a hand to help him. 

In August 2017, Michael was diagnosed with stage 3 esophageal cancer.  Quickly after his diagnosis, he started treatment on September 5th.  Daily radiation treatments and weekly chemo treatments were completed on October 10th. He tackled it like a champ and we are so proud of him!  Now it is time for his body to rest before going through an intensive surgery to remove part of his esophagus, anticipated to occur in December 2017.

 With the short timeline of aggressive treatments, bills are quickly starting to pile up.  Some will be covered by insurance, but most will not.  Please help alleviate some of the financial burden on the family so that they can fully concentrate on treatment and recovery.  Even the smallest donation will help.  All donations will go towards radiation and chemo treatments, surgery, and medical supplied needed at home (e.g. feeding tube supplies). These types of medical bills and medication add up quickly. Some will be covered by insurance and some will not, so even the smallest donation will help her cause

Michael has two children, one daughter-in-law, one son-in-law, four grandchildren, and a wife who are his BIGGEST FANS.  Please join us in praying for him and supporting him as he hammers through this BS. #HammertheBS #LosingisNOTanoption
