Help Frank beat cancer!

For those who don't know, my dad Frank Driskill was diagnosed with stage 4 esophageal cancer on 4/13/17 of this year. This devastating news has come as quite a shock to all us.  Things have moved at record speed, as this is an aggressive cancer.

Early in June after his initial diagnoses, we were waiting on his PET scan appointment so the doctor could create a treatment plan. While we waited dad suddenly became unable to swallow anything due to a completely blocked esophagus. On Easter Sunday, dad was admitted into the hospital for five days where they placed a feeding tube, through which he now receives his food and water. The doctor will do another PET in late June to see if the tumor has shrunk enough for him to start eating solid foods again.

Dad appears to be responding well to the Chemo, and has stayed positive despite everything going on. He is determined to beat this and there is no doubt in my mind that he can. Despite his positive attitude regarding his illness I can tell that he and mom are, growing concerned about the mounting medical bills and the costly repairs both their vehicles need. Dad has had to go on short-term disability since his stay in the hospital, and a date for him to return to work is still unclear at this time.

All donations are greatly appreciated, and will go towards dad’s medical and living expenses. It is my hope that this go fund me page will allow my parents to quit worrying about their growing medical costs, and allow dad to focus on getting better.
