Jackie's Cancer Fund

On July 25th, Life changed for the Samples household. In addition to learning our Hound dog Gunny has bladder cancer ( June 11th) We learned that My husband Jackie has a cancerous brain tumor. It was a huge shock to say the least. He was also fired from his job just a few days before the diagnosis. Which has caused our Insurance to Lapse on the the 1st of August, not to mention he cannot receive short term disability which is paid thru the employer. In The last year we have worked very hard to build our credit and purchase our dream home, (that wish came true in Nov. last year). He was diagnosed with an Esthesioneuroblastoma, It was quite large and is very rare (about 700 diagnosed in the US). He had the tumor successfully removed last week, his Dr had thankfully preformed 2 prior removals of the same type of tumor.  After he recovered and was sent home he is now back in the hospital due to spinal fluid leakage which may be another 3-5 days in ICU. The cost is great and the road is long....anything helps and is greatly appreciated. I hate to ask for a "handout" so to speak but we need help keeping afloat for the next few months like i said your generosity is greatly appreciated
