Wes and Melissa waited anxiously over the next several days for the final pathology and additional imaging studies to return. They dreaded the nearing conversation with their children about the diagnosis. How do you explain to an 8 year old, twin 9 year olds, and your two grown children you have lung cancer? Seriously, I am asking. If you have tips, please let us know.
My brother-in-law and my sister are amazing people with big hearts. Yes, I know you have heard it before how great people are and yes most people are great, but Melissa and Wes are a step further than great. They are inspirational. They are people who make you want to be a better person. Even with insurance, medical bills can be a financial burden from doctor’s bills, insurance co-pays, travel costs, lost wages, chemotherapy, radiation, immunotherapy, and other life-saving treatments are both difficult and costly. The funds raised will help off set the financial burdens this family will endure as a result of a truly sucky illness. While we can’t “fix” cancer, we can support those who suffer from the life changing words…you have cancer. Please log into GoFundMe to help lessen the financial burden or even to share your supporting thoughts. Thank you from all of us!
