Mike and Marcy Bartelds

My step-dad Mike was diagnosed with cancer in the central part of his lungs in January 2017. He has had some ups and downs throughout his battle. But for the most part it has been alright. The doctors did everything that they could to slow the progression of the cancer. Now it has come time that we are getting close to saying goodbye. Mike is in the comfort of his home with his family and dogs keeping him company for his final days. 
We don't know how much time we have. But it would make the days with him so much more peaceful for my mom, Marcy, if she did not have to worry about loss of income from not being able to work. The medical bills and the last year living on only her income has put things behind. So if you would like to help out with that part it would be ever so appreciated! We are so amazed by the outpouring of support from our awesome community! We love you all! Thank you for reading and please pass this along!
