Ken Dutra's Medical Fund

Kenny was diagnosed with Colon Cancer last month and prepared to undergo surgery to remove the tumor and any related lymph nodes.  While the good news is that the cancer was removed and nothing is showing up in the nodes or related tissue, the bad news is that he had major complications, required two surgeries and went into Septic Shock.  He spent two weeks in the hospital, much of it in ICU.  There was a point we were not sure he would make it.  Prayers and faith pulled this amazing man through!!

 As you might imagine, he is being faced with thousands of dollars in medical bills.  Good news again is that he has great medical insurance...but with a very high deductible ($7,500) most of which has been paid out of pocket.  He has been out of work and will be for a few more weeks.  I am setting this account up for him in the hopes that between this and some insurance, he can recoup the cost of missed work and some of the out of pocket expenses that he has had to pay.  His savings for retirement is there but beginning to be tapped.

He is no fan of soliciting donations but several have asked if they could contribute and this expression of kindness and generosity has been wonderful.

His recovery progress is amazing and his attitude is great.  We are blessed at the prognosis and will make it through this difficult time. If you are able to assist financially, it will mean a lot, but if you are not, then your prayers are so appreciated. 

Thank you!!
