My husband, Jerry Daniel, was diagnosed with end-stage lung cancer (a Neucroctic Squamous Cell Carcinoma) on November 28th of this last year. He has a 4 centimeter mass in his right lung, and this has begun to attack his ribs as well. He is currently undergoing radiation therapy, but, because he is not strong enough for chemotherapy, his cancer continues to spread through his lung and chest. Jerry's sickness doesn't only mean watching the most important man in the lives of my daughter and myself suffer, but it also means that we will lose him much sooner than we ever expected. Jerry has always been our primary breadwinner, and while we are certainly more concerned with his health and wellbeing than our financial situation, we are being forced to consider the toll this cancer is taking on our bills. With Jerry's therapy happening daily, I have been forced to cut my hours to take care of him, and I can foresee a time coming soon when I have no choice but to leave my job altogether.
We are blessed to have had been accepted by Medicare, but medical bills are still racking up, in addition to expenses that Jerry previously took care of. We had a hard time deciding whether or not it was fitting, or even just and ethical, to create a GoFundMe, but in all honesty we are struggling. We're hoping that people who have experienced Jerry's kindness and selflessness in the past would feel led to help, but we understand if that's not an option. We ask for your prayers more than anything as we go through this incredibly painful time, and thank you so much for even considering any kind of support.
