My families world came crashing down last November when
my stepfather was diagnosed with inoperative terminal mesothelioma lung cancer, which carried a death sentence of 6 months to maybe a year with treatment.
Why does this happen to good people? Cancer doesn't care!!
Owen is the most loving, gentle God fearing soul you would want to know. His kindness and caring personality touches the hearts of many ,many people. From the weekly donations to many charities faithfully for years to helping anyone in need.
This is what his family at Home Depot has to say...
For 20 years Owen have gifted Home Depot with his passion , empathy, people skills , positive energy, loving life stories & vast knowledge in construction, carpentry and home improvement , Owen is loved by his co workers , management team and customers alike . Owens love for people always make us feel special and touches our hearts every time we hear his stories about his family , the people he had the pleasure of meeting or his knowledge that he would share with anyone that wanted information . It is always a joy to come in contact with Owen because he is always a burst of sunshine and positivity . Owen will always be part of our Home Depot family . Thank you for all you do....Sincerely staff at Home Depot.
At this point after 2 chemo treatments the Drs. have declined further treatment due to kidney failure.
Now the next path has led to a last ditch effort to try Homeopathic Medicine to prolong Owens life which is not covered by insurance.
My folks have lived pay check to pay check on Owen's salary along with small amount from social security.
Now Owen has been unable to work and they need help financially . The expence of medical bills, prescriptions, travel and hotels has depleted all their funds. Even the Mesothelioma lawyers have advised us the funds are near exhausted for these claims.
I am so afraid for my elderly mother who is Owens' caregiver trying desperately to fill all his last wishes will be left with nothing at the end not to mention the funeral costs.
Any help would be a blessing. They don't deserve an end like this.
