My name is Michelle Sherman and Bob Sarmento is my nephew who has stage 4 adenocarinoma, a non-smokers cancer. He had this cough since October. They simply though it was due to the heating in thier home. The cough got worse so he and his wife went to ENT February 20th, and had a CAT of neck and chest on March 6, March 13th they were told it looks like CANCER but needed biopsy, MRI and PET scan. The MRI and PET scan showed lesions on the spine, liver and femur, and brain. On April 7th they met with radiation oncologist Dr. Ochsner and he started treatment on 4/13/15.

Bob is an avid hunter/outdoors man. Hardworking and a dedicated husband to Christine Sarmento. An amazing father to Dominique who just had her 13th birthday. While we are all worried about Bob he is worried about his family and how they are going to be able to meet thier financial obligations, medical exspenses, in regards to the aggressive expensive medical treatments he is currently receiving (radiation) and the CHEMO he is forecasted to be received in the months to come to try and fight to survive this cancer so that he can watch his little girl grow graduate and grow up.

I know there is only so much that I as an individual can do so Go Fund Me seems like a wonderful opportunity to join together with people that understand that when we all just do a little bit and stand together we can accomplish great things. Overcome huge obstacles and make a difference in each others lives. I am asking that when you read this if you feel led to help Bob, Christine, and Dominique then please do so.

As their journey has just begun and will be long and fearful due to the unknown of what is to come. They need to be able to focus on caring for one another emotionally, physically and spiritually. So your generous donation whatever it be $1.00 or $100.00 is a priceless act of humanity and love for human life.

Thank you in advance for taking the time to read Bob's story.
