S.T.A.N.D. AND FIGHT CANCER

MY MOTHER, MARY LOU AND YOUNGEST BROTHER, VINNY HAVE BOTH BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH STAGE 4 CANCER WITHIN THE LAST 3 MONTHS... BOTH MOM AND VINNY HAVE HAD SURGERY AND WILL REQUIRE EXTENSIVE CHEMOTHERAPY, RADIATION TREATMENTS, DENTAL CARE, NURSING, COUNSELING AND VARIOUS OTHER LIFE-SAVING CARE... MOM WAS DIAGNOSED FIRST, WHICH RALLIED THE FAMILY TO HER SIDE. THUS FAR, HER MAJOR MEDICAL EXPENSES HAVE BEEN MOSTLY COVERED BY INSURANCE AND FAMILY RESOURCES. THEY INCLUDE CHEMOTHERAPY, SURGERY, PRE-CHEMO DENTAL WORK, PAIN MANAGEMENT AND OTHER THERAPY.   HOWEVER, WHILE MOM'S HOUSING AND LIVING EXPENSES WERE PREVIOUSLY PROVIDED FOR BY VINNY,  DOING SO HE HAS DEPLETED HIS OWN RESOURCES AND SACRIFICED HIS OWN FINANCIAL SECURITY. LIKEWISE, SINCE VINNY'S DOCTOR FOUND A GOLF BALL SIZED TUMOR IN HIS THROAT TWO WEEKS AGO, HE'S BEEN UNABLE TO MEET HIS OWN FINANCIAL NEEDS TO GET THE LIFE-SAVING MEDICAL PROCEDURES HE NEEDS. OUR FAMILY HAS BEEN RALLYING TO SAVE BOTH OF THEIR LIVES. WITH EVERY RESOURCE AND CONNECTION WE CAN MUSTER - WE'VE REARRANGED OUR LIVES, LIVING QUARTERS, FINANCES AND TIME TO MEET THEIR URGENT MEDICAL EMERGENCIES. THESE FUNDS WILL GO DIRECTLY AND CAN BE REMITTED DIRECTLY TO  MOM'S AND BROTHER'S MEDICAL EXPENSES IMMEDIATELY... VINNY'S INITIAL BIOPSY SURGERY WAS NEARLY CANCELLED FOR LACK OF A $6000 DEDUCTIBLE PAYMENT. AFTER HIS DEDUCTIBLE IS MET, THE INSURANCE WILL ONLY PAY UP TO HALF OF HIS HOSPITALIZATION AND OTHER MEDICAL EXPENSES AND ONLY AFTER HE HAS PAID HIS PAYMENTS. WITHOUT YOUR HELP, WE FEAR THAT VINNY AND MOM WILL NOT BE ABLE TO CONTINUE TREATMENTS, PAY FOR DOCTOR VISITS, THERAPY AND MOST OF ALL... BEAT CANCER! THE LIVES OF OUR FAMILY ARE AT STAKE AND WE ARE HUMBLY ASKING FOR YOUR HELP... ANYTHING HELPS AND EVERYTHING IS APPRECIATED.
