Patrick's Medical Expenses

In June of 2017, my father, Patrick Shanahan was diagnosed with colon cancer.  As the man who made us the supportive, loving family we are today, he will always go the extra mile for the ones he loves. Unfortunately, it's not quite as easy for him to receive help as it is for him to give it. So we are asking for it on his behalf.

We're not sure what the road ahead will look like, but we've learned from his oncologist and healthcare providers that it will involve treatments and surgeries that cost more than what we have to offer. 

Whatever amount you feel comfortable with, we ask you to give what you can to help our family through this difficult and uncertain time. Whether it be a donation, a thought, an intention or a prayer, we are wholeheartedly grateful for anything you can send his way.
