Marlin’s March Against Cancer

Marlin was diagnosed with esophageal cancer in Dec of 2019.He has had two different procedures to have the spot taken out. Doctors were unable to get all of the cancer out. He now must have a surgery to remove part of his esophagus. This will mean he will need to be out of work for up to 3 months and will have to re learn how to eat. This has been a great financial burden in 2019. Marlin also needs to have radiation and chemo treatment before doing surgery. Radiation treatment starts 2/26/20. The cost of this surgery and being out of work is terrifying to the family. If you know Marlin “Wally the beer man” he would give you the shirt off his back. He is one of the kindest and most sincere people I know. He told me “I really want to watch my granddaughters grow up”. This is an extremely sad time for the Krienke family! Any help is greatly appreciated!
