James Omlid

My Stepdad, James Omlid, has been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. This diagnosis is a major setback for James. His wife (and my Mother), Lee, has been hospitalized since December 29th 2017 as a result of several accidents and seizures due to a brain injury. She will soon will be placed in an assisted living facility due to her ongoing medical issues. James was working to support himself and Lee while also dealing with the financial and emotional stress of Lee's health issues. The treatment for James' cancer will include chemo and possibly radiation for 12-18 weeks. James is a strong person, but the side effects of the treatment will not allow James to work during his treatment schedule. I am asking for your support to help James with monthly bills. We anticipate James to need support for about 4 months and have set a goal of $5,000. James has been through a lot the last several months. He has been stretched thin between his responsibilities as the sole caregiver to his ailing wife while also trying to make ends meet at home.  We acknowledge those of you who have supported Lee and James in the past and offer our heartfelt thanks. We are making this fund request now because of the extenuating circumstances that James’ current medical diagnosis present. Any support you could give would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
