Joe's Cancer Expenses Fund

Joe Lorsung has given of himself tirelessly to his family and community throughout his life. As a pastor for over 30 years, he has loved and supported those around him through acts of kindness, ministry, words of encouragement and counseling through difficult times. Joe has two forms of cancer called a double hit (follicular lymphoma and Large Diffuse B Cell cancer). A double hit is a rare form of cancer, without much treatment history and now he is facing a difficult time. Our family has created this page for financial support in a request that the man that has given so much of himself, would be shown love and support during his battle with cancer. We need the help of our family and friends as rising medical expenses pile up. Joe has been unable to work since he’s been diagnosed. Since then he has faced a slew of sicknesses and experienced multiple hospitalizations including 11+ months of chemotherapy, pneumonia, a weakened immune system, the RSV virus, pneumonia, and sinus infection. In January he started the bone marrow transplant process but discovered the cancer was not in remission. He has begun a chemotherapy treatment which requires a 3 day admission each time. It’s a long road ahead of us, but we are fighting the good fight. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you as a family for your prayers and financial support. Your steadfast love, O LORD, extends to the heavens, your faithfulness to the clouds. Psalms 36:5 (updated 3/11/18 by Joe & Deb Lorsung's family)
