Buddy suffered a heart attack on September 20th and that same day they found tumors in his abdominal area and lung. He later was diagnosed with stage 4 adenocarcinoma of the esophagus that has metastasized to his lungs and liver. On October 4th, Buddy went to Cancer Treatment Center of America in Chicago for treatment. Do to extenuating circumstances from the heart attack and pulmonary embolisms, Buddy has remained in Chicago at the Cancer Institute since October 4th. He finally was able to start radiation on October 26th continuing for 3 weeks. He also started chemo treatments that same day which he will do every other week for 3 months until they will rescan his tumors. There is also possibilities of other treatment in the coming months.
Do to the overwhelming financial expense that goes along with treating cancer , his medical bills from his heart attack and the long Hospital stay, we are raising money to help support
Buddy financially through this process.
Buddy has always been the Fix-It man. He's always there to help a friend when something needs to be worked on, - he can fix anything! Now Buddy needs help fixing himself and beating cancer. Let's help Buddy Beat this!!
Thank you all for you love, support, and thoughts and prayers. We truly appreciate it all!!
