Steve is a Warrior for 4Th Time

My name is Tammie Tortorice, aka Turtle. I am starting a go fund me account for Steve. His cancer journey began over three years ago, in August 2014. He had no idea when he began this battle that he would have to encounter Cancer four times in three years. He has been a trooper every time he had a recurrence. He never complained and just did what the doctors and nurses told him to do. He is a HERO to all his friends and family.

Most of you are aware of Steve's fourth cancer recurrence a few months ago. He is still fighting for his life and is unable to return to work, this has had a great impact on his finances. He greatly appreciates everything that all his friends and family have done to help him fight for his life again. As Steve continues daily to fight this horrible disease again, the expenses are piling up. He is struggling every day to get stronger and is very hopeful to return to work soon. Steve has been so good to so many people and would give the shirt off his back to even a stranger. During this time of extreme diffuculty, a go fund me account is being set up to help him cover the cost for his health insurance premiums, copays for his medication, treatments and repair his engine that has blown up in his tahoe.

Please know that Steve is in control of his finances, he has filed for divorce and is fighting to beat cancer and pick up the pieces. Please help him reach his goal. Thank you.

Born and Bred Aussie, will beat this!
