Sam Rende's Continuous Fight

As many of you know, our father Sam, was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer in May 2016. As you can imagine, this news was a shock, after he won his first battle with colon cancer in October 2009. His cancer has spread into numerous tumors in both lungs, two large tumors on his adrenal glands, and spread throughout his lymphnodes. Sam has been undergoing chemotherapy for the last year, including a more aggresive form for the last six months. Unfortunately, there is no further viable medical treatment availble to battle his cancer. 

Sam has decided to try one of his remaining avenues, natural medicine. He will be undergoing high dosage of Vitamin C and Mistletoe infusions to improve his quality and hopefully extend the longevity of his life as the doctors only gave him 6 months or less. Cancer is a beast and no one should endure it alone. The cost to treat it and to try to beat it are enormous. As a family, we have done our best to manage it but at this time we must reach out to our family and friends. We love our dad and need your help!! Our dad was always there to support us and our mom Gini Rende whenever we needed him, this is our chance to do the same for him.

If you'd like to show your support for Sam, it would be greatly appreciated as he is currently unable to work due to his cancerous disease affecting his life. Every positive thought and kind gesture is welcomed.
