Curtis' Road to Recovery

At 43 years old, Curtis Martin is beginning the fight for his life and needs our help!

After a year and a half of unexplained sicknesses, he was recently diagnosed with Adenocarcinoma of the appendix, a rare form of cancer originating in the appendix and now spread to his omentum and around other organs. On Thursday, December 11th, Curtis will have a port put in to begin aggressive chemo on December 17th. He will start with chemo every other week for 12 weeks and then have an MRI scan to check the progress. Curtis will then go through another 6 weeks of chemo. In 6 months, doctors hope the cancer will shrink enough so they can perform some clean up surgery.

As you can imagine, this road ahead will place a huge financial burden on the family. Let's show our love to them by donating to help with the ever rising medical bills they will incur. Any little bit helps! By donating to the family, we can help become a part of Curtis's road to recovery. 

100% of the donations go directly to Curtis and his family. Let's make sure Curtis, Melanie, and Ricky know they are not traveling this road alone by overwhelming them with our love and support! Please continue to pray that God will give them the strength they need during this long journey.
