Stage 4 non-Hodgkin lymphoma

27446156_15175878130_r.jpegMy name is Ron Baumes.  Pictured here is my youngest son Christopher Baumes and his newly wedded wife Donna.  He is only 27 and was just beginning to embark on a new chapter in his life when his whole world was turned upside down.27446156_15175878790_r.jpeg Chris went to the doctor a few weeks ago to have some papers filled out for his job. The doctor noticed a lump on his neck. Long story short he has stage four Non-Hodgkin lymphoma. He will be out of work for the next 6 to 12 months. He is more concerned with paying his bills than he is about getting better.

Any and all donations will be spent to keep his monthly bills current and assist in his medical care and transportation costs.  His mother Annette and myself are doing all we can to help him, but I am afraid we are falling short and sadly do not have the means to fully support him. As of right now, he is not in danger of losing his home or car, but I fear that could come without some assistance.  Every donation, no matter the size, would be a blessing.  Chris is a very proud man and will not ask for help; this is why I have been encouraged to put this page up. We don't want Chris to spend his energy worrying about the money he is currently not able to earn.  He needs to stay focused on getting better. As of today, he has taken the first of four scheduled rounds of chemo.

All prayers are greatly appreciated. If you feel so moved, please share this post to help me get the word out. Also, let me say thank you to those of you that have been reaching out to us and asking what you can do. We know in our hearts that God is still in the miracle business so please continue to pray for his complete healing.

This has been a nightmare we cannot be awoken from. As parents, it is difficult to see our child going through this and not be able to take the pain away. We feel helpless.  I pray no one else has to go through something like this. Please include my whole family in your prayers,

Thanking you all in advance Ron and Annette Baumes
