Our brother Rob was diagnosed with hotchkins lynphoma cancer at the age of 17, after all the treatments the doctors were able to get the cancer into remition. Although not an easy ride, Rob was fortunate to get a chance to live and raise a family of 4 kids. After 20 years of remission, Rob finds himself battling cancer once again. Rob knew something was wrong and went into the doctor for a check up on a lump that was forming in his neck. The black cloud of cancer has come back and has come back with a vengeance. Rob has been in and out of treatments over this past year leaving his body to weaken. He has been unable to work his full-time work hours, weakening his budget as well. The doctors have tried different treatments to battle the cancer, but all have been failing attempts. The doctors are now giving Rob a more optimistic treatment option. However, this option would mean Rob would have to move to Seattle for 3 months and immerse himself solely on the treatment. The doctor says he will be very weak and will need a full time caregiver. This option gives us hope, but will require cash to pay a caregiver, living expenses, meals, and added medical bills while still having to maintain his household bills at home. Rob is the primary breadwinner and still has 3 kids at home to provide for. It is with deep sadness that we ask for your financial help, so that Rob can accept this treatment. I know our brother is struggling with this matter because he and our family can not afford all of these expenses. We are asking for your help to keep the battle against cancer going for our brother Rob, so that Rob can continue raising his kids and experience the joys of his first granddaughter.
Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your kindness.
