In 2010, Patrick was diagnosed with prostate cancer. He fought hard. He endured radiation and hormone treatments and underwent major surgery. He was ecstatic when the doctors were confident that he beat cancer. Patrick was (and still is) thankful for all the wonderful support.
In February of 2015, the Schwab family learned that Patrick’s fight with cancer was not over. He was informed that lesions up and down his spine were an indicator that the cancer was now in his bones. He has 5 fractured vertebrae stemming from the base of his skull to the top of his hips. Cancer is back for round 2.
While we all know Patrick is up for the fight, medical bills are mounting. The Schwabs run two home based business and are raising a 4 year old. As you can imagine, the family is doing everything possible to keep the businesses running smooth. Your help can help Patrick focus on recovery and his roles as both a father and husband by pledging your support.
What can you do? Of course financial support is appreciated. Donations are graciously accepted. The family can also use your emotional support. Kind words and warm meals are just a couple ways you can be a bright light. You can also share this information to others who understand the challenge this family is facing. I relay a warm thank you from the Schwab family.
