The Love of My Life Has Cancer

On September 23, 2014 my beautiful and precious wife of 22 years, Catherine was diagnosed with a rare form of colorectal cancer. She deals with severe pain on a daily basis and her treatment options are limited with serious long term health side effects.

We have had to travel for treatments and I am the full time care giver for Catherine right now. Neither of us are able to work at this time because of this situation. Last year I had my own health scare, we were getting close to getting all that paid back;  and now this.

Medical and travel expenses are adding up quickly. I am not sure where to turn and I am feeling overwhelmed. Money is the last thing Catherine should be worried about at this time. I don't want her to be without me during this time, she needs me to take care of her. I am honestly concerned about leaving her side for any time.

Catherine's sister died from cancer at age 40; she didn't survive the chemo and radiation treatments so this is especially difficult for Catherine to be going through. She slips into despair if I am not there to keep her on track. It is very important that I am with her to keep her spirits up and staying positive.

Please help me save Catherine's life. We have plenty of love, thanks to all of you. We just need a little money.

If you are not able to contribute financially, PLEASE SHARE THIS MESSAGE OF LOVE. Your postive thoughts and healing prayers are always welcomed and received.

We are trying to raise funds for uncovered medical expenses, living expenses and alternative supportive care options. Even with insurance, it is very expensive, no alternative therapies are covered. We are forever grateful for your donations, Thank you.

Gratefully yours,
Ron Burdine
