This account has been created for my best friend Ken Hargreaves & his family. Due to unforeseen medical circumstances that will have Ken out of work for an uncertain amount of time, putting absolute strain on he and his family, we are asking for your help and support for a genuine, kind-hearted, would hand you the shirt off his back to keep you warm, kind of guy. As many of you know, Ken is an amazing father of 3 small children and the husband to a wonderful wife named Shannon. Ken and Shannon have been together since August 22, 2005 and were married on August 23 of 2008. Since then, they have been the strong and lovable family amongst friends. Always welcoming anyone into their lives, and feeling immediatley a part of their own family. Shannon is a loving, dedicated stay at home mother who juggles 3 beautiful young children and does so, seamlessly. Ken has always been a hard working man who spends an average of 10 hours a day, 6 days a week to provide for his family and his persistence is nothing short of inspiring and admirable. All who are lucky enough to know Ken, knows that he is always the one who's first in line to help anyone who needs it and that he isn't one to ask for any help or favors himself, so that is why we're doing that for him.
Ken has been diagnosed with a Familial Adenomatous Polyposis (FAP). FAP is a condition where numerous polyps form on the tissue of an organ. In Ken's case, they have found that there are about 100 polyps in his colon that are tubular, which means that they will become cancerous in due time.
Ken is now facing surgery that will require the removal of his colon, as well as follow-up surgeries to remove the polyps that have been found in his stomach and small intestines. As anyone can imagine, a surgery this extensive will not only require extensive recovery but also time away from work. A job he has, loves and supports his family with.
If there's anyone who deserves the help and support, it's Ken and his family in this difficult and unfortunate situation. Any little bit helps and even spreading the word as well as offering love and support in the Hargreaves time of need is immensely appreciated.
With warm hearts,
we thank you.
