Siobhan's Dad's Cancer Battle

As many of you are aware, Siobhan's Dad, Richard Forsythe, has been diagnosed with T2 bladder cancer that has rooted into the underlying muscle of his bladder and they believe elsewhere.  He has already had 3 surgeries since 7/28/17, as well as 4 ER visits in the last month.  On 8/18, they completed a liver biopsy as they believe the cancer has already spread.  They will know the results this week.  He will also need a PET scan if the biopsy comes back as cancer to see if it is located anywhere else.  Once they know what other parts of his body, aside from his bladder, that the cancer is located, he will require chemotherapy and possibly radiation, followed by a full bladder removal.  Siobhan provides his primary transportation to his appointments in Indy at this time, until her sister is able to apply for FMLA.  Her sister has not been at her new job for a full year yet to qualify.  Siobhan has already missed 3 days of work and is down to 17 PTO hours.  After that, she will not longer receive pay when she must take off work.  She has also stopped all of her college classes to fully support her dad during this time.  If you can help donate to help her out during this difficult time, it would be most appreciated.  Every little bit helps.  Once her PTO is gone, she will be short on money for bills, and to pay for gas to get to and from Indy, etc...  Any money donated will supplement any missed income, and then go directly to Siobhan's father to pay for his medications, bills, etc...  He has some support financially for himself for the next month or so, but not enough to last him.  In addition, he is also helping to raise his 2-year-old great-nephew at this time, along with his sister.  Thank you for your prayers and any support you can provide for Siobhan and her Dad during this time.  If you are unable to donate, please just pray and share this this!
