Move Mountains for Kelly

Thank you for visting this page for my amazing in laws, Michael's battle with, what doctors labelled several years ago as  Esophageal liver cancer. He has been in and out of remission over the last six years and he has undergone radiation, ablation, and chemotherapy.  To many Michael is known as Stokes Drywall, and he enjoyed a long career making drywall look simple, and is best remembered for a flawless finish. To others he is a hunting enthusiastic who has inspired many.  To us, he is Michael, wonderful father of three, loving partner, a grandfather, a brother, an uncle, and friend. We desperately hope that we, their friends and loved ones, can raise the funds they need to get through this difficult time.  Just over 1 week ago. Michael was admitted to the hospital in serious condition. His blood pressure was extremely low, heart wasn't functioning well, he was dehydrated, his color was pale, and he was barely hanging on. He was discharged from the hospital with hospice care to follow him home.  For those of you who know Michael & Kelly, you know that they are  both extraordinary human beings.  They are also very prideful, and do not ask for help.  The recent chain of events has brought up some very tough converstaions. We as a family learned this tough time has caused some financial distress for the family in many ways.  Some of the everyday necessities of life were put on hold and money is tight.   Michael is one of the strongest, most selfless people I have ever known and is always there to give to others and would even give the shirt off his back to anyone that needs it.  Now, it's time that we send back some of that love and support to Michael & Kelly.  Anything you can donate will be truly appreciated.  Everything we can do to help and surround this family with love is what is most important so Kelly can focus on her time with Michael.   Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.   #cancersucks
