After several tests Alfred "Joe" Dudenhoeffer was diagnosed with stage3 lung cancer in June of this year. He had to take a medical leave from work in july and started 4 months of aggresive chemo and radiation therapies which required 100 mile round trips to treatment centers daily. Throughout this time payments and funds have not been an issue . But in november his cancer was upgraded to stage 4 and now going through maintenance chemo for the rest of his life or when cancer disappears. Funds have been depleted to the point where ends are barely being met and medical bills are rising with every treatment. The stress and burden of rising bills are not allowing him to stay strong and positive in order to beat this cancer. Any monetary assistance would be so greatly appreciated and spirit lifting. Making sure family and bills are taken care of while fighting this disease would allow him to focus on the fight.
