Bill is 37 years young, from Houston, Tx, father of the amazing Miles Maple, and wonderful husband to Courtney Maple. He is a son, brother, son-in-law, uncle to 3 amazing kiddos, nephew, best friend to many, and he is always the first person in line when someone needs a hand and has a big heart. Bill has been diagnosed with a very agressive lymphoma. The good news is that it is potentially curable but Bill must endure agressive treatment immediatly. The last two weeks have been a whirlwind. We have seen 5 doctors, had multiple procedures to remove 17 liters of fluid off of his abdomen, biopsy of liver and omentum, CT scans, X-Rays, and a bone marrow biopsy. Due to the agressive nature of this lymphoma, Bill will now endure very agressive treatment as we continue with more tests and procedures (CT PET Scan, getting his port, chemotherapy, upper GI, and colonscopy). While we do have health insurance our out of pocket expenses are accumulating rapidly as all treatment must be paid for in advance or they will not allow us to continue. Thankfully, our family has been able to help us get through a very emotional and busy first week, but we have so much more to come. Any donation of any value will be greatly appreciated. The donations will be used to pay hospital bills and costs getting us to and from appointments. Bill is unable to work at this time, but is hoping to return soon.
Please know how much we appreciate your support, well wishes and prayers as we fight this cancer.
