Unfortunately, Jeff was diagnosed in May 2017 with a very rare and aggressive form of small cell carcinoma in his neck/lymph nodes. He started treatment right away- a combination of chemotherapy and radiation.
Treatment is at MUSC in Charleston, SC- about 2.5 hours from home in Myrtle Beach. This is very taxing on all- River( 13 year old son), my sister Stacey (his wife), and of course Jeff- having to travel 5+ hours round trip on an almost daily basis. So far he's responding well to the treatment (tumor is shrinking!), but due to poor kidney function and blood counts he recently has been hospitalized so he can recover a bit from the chemo. Its taken quite a toll on him- he feels worse than most of us can ever imagine.
Jeff runs a family business in Myrtle Beach, and is currently unable to work due to treatment. Funds raised will help with mortgage, medical and home expenses.
Once chemo and radiation is complete, we hope for news soon of an immediate and long remission! Until then, every little bit you can donate is much appreciated and will greatly help the Marlowe family.
