Stephen's "Home-Run" to Recovery

Stephen & Vicki are survivors. Stephen was diagnosed with Pseudomyxoma peritonei in 2011, a mucinous adenocarcinoma. He has battled his cancer bravely for the past 6 years. He's had many extended hospital and long-term facility stays which have involved extensive surgeries and medical procedures. They have both endured extreme emotional and financial hardships due to Stephen's time away from work and his intensive medical care.

Vicki has been nothing but a hero when it comes to supporting Stephen. She visits him daily and advocates for Stephen's medical care in addition to working at Midwestern University.

As you might imagine, their financial burden has been extreme. We would like to show them both how much they mean to us by supporting them with a fund for Stephen's "Home-Run" to Recovery!
