HelpSherwoodFightCancerWithSons

This page is set up for Sherwood (aka Bamboo/Bam) L. McGlown, a 62-year old US Navy veteran, currently diagnosed with prostate cancer that requires surgery.  Funds will be used for the necessary surgery that doctors state needs to be done soon to avoid spreading.  Sherwood is a Christian who volunteers at his church with the worship team and has been drug-free for over 20 years, with the help of Victory Outreach, a Christian-based program.  When his older sons were toddlers he made a sound decision to get clean and become a healthy productive adult and role model to this family.  His faith allowed him to continue to provide for his 4 sons even after their mother passed in 2011. He has been employed for over 20 years, currently, with a small firm with no health insurance and struggles regularly to make ends meet.  He works hard to stay above board financially, he maintains no credit card bills, and lives humbly and within his means.  Even at times when income qualified, the last thing he has wanted to do is depend on government assistance.   He continues to work as the sole provider for his family and teaches his sons the value of hard work.  He maintains a positive outlook and encourages his boys to volunteer at church, school and community. If there are any other programs that can help, he is grateful for any assistance provided.
