Socha's Cancer Battle

Steve Socha and I share a few things in common. We have the same first name; we both have a wonderful wife and five beautiful children.  We both have a sense of humor, (I think my jokes may be better!) And then we have a few things we do not share. Steve is a passionate U of M fan; I root for that “other team up in East Lansing.”  
Steve is battling CANCER; I am not. I am sure most of you are aware of the strong and determined battle Steve has been fighting during his diagnosis and treatment. 

Proud fathers are normally the first ones to run to if you need a favor. Steve Socha is always ready to help someone in need. But Socha is also very humble and like most of us has a hard time asking for help when he needs it.


The Socha family is fighting this battle as a TEAM and with lots of prayers and support they will get through this difficult fight. Many of us are asking “What can I do to help?” The answer is “keep us in your prayers”. BUT we all know what a financial burden this kind of a battle can place on any family.

The Sochas are applying for Disability Coverage from Social Security but that process can take more than six months. Steve is a self-employed contractor; so when he gets sick that family income takes a big hit.

So we are asking all of you to support our goal of $25,000 to cover the mortgage payments for six months and all of the unexpected expenses that pop up associated with this battle:  deductibles/co-pays/out of pocket medical expenses/transportation. They all add up!

The key to reaching our goal is simple. SMALL CONTRIBUTIONS BY LOTS OF FAMILY AND FRIENDS.  So do what you can and SPREAD THE WORD.

God Bless You and Your Families
