Jeff's Cancer Fund

Unfortunately our family is sad to announce that Jeff's cancer has returned.  He has been diagnosed with a recurrence of esophageal cancer.  This time Jeff is at a Stage 4, which has metastasized to his liver, pancreas, left adrenal gland, and multiple lymph nodes.  Since his diagnosis Jeff has had to stop working, leaving us with no income.  Bills are starting to pile up, including more medical bills.  Any help would be appreciated!

We are also having a benefit for Jeff.  You can find out more information here -- https://www.facebook.com/BialekFamilyCancerBenefit/?modal=admin_todo_tour

On August 4, 2017 ( one day before our daughter's 1st birthday) my husband Jeff was diagnosed with Stage 2 esophageal cancer.  He is currently in the hospital due to malnutrition.  Where the tumor is located, and due to it's large size, he can no longer eat or drink anything.  He had surgery to put in the feeding tube on August 16th.  Once Jeff comes home from the hospital he will need the pump, equipment and food for the feeding tube, none of which is covered by our insurance.   This is very urgent situation! The pump and equipment is approximately $600 a month to rent and the food is about $200 a week.  Jeff needs to get his weight back up and get his strength up to start treatments.  He will start radiation and chemotherapy hopefully next week & will likely have a complete esphagectomy in November.  This procedure will require his entire esophagus to be removed and rebuilt in a way by using his stomach.  If you find it in your heart to give, even just a small amount, I promise you that this will help!  We have 3 children (Josh who is 18, Grace who is 11 and Abigail who just turned 1), Jeff works and I stay home right now.  Thank you for reading and please share!
