The Hart Family Needs Some Love

The Hart family needs some love right now. As some of you may know, Shawn is already a cancer survivor but is, unfortunately, battling a new aggressive cancer. After nearly a year of mysterious and unsolvable pain, Shawn and his medical team discovered a large adenocarcinoma tumor deep in his abdomen and a neuroendocrine tumor on his pancreas in September 2022. Two different types of cancer! The large tumor is causing significant and unbearable pain, problems with digestion, and pressure on his organs. Shawn has undergone three different biopsies and countless procedures as his medical team tries to diagnose the exact type of cancer related to the large tumor and to determine the best treatment plan. Treatment will include chemo and potentially radiation. The location of the large tumor makes it impossible to remove.

Shawn is a father of 2 beautiful girls, a husband to Kate, and an entrepreneur, coffee-roaster, photographer, outdoor enthusiast and web designer living in The Columbia River Gorge. Because of the unbearable pain caused by his tumors and the numerous medical appointments and trips to Portland to see specialists, Shawn has not been able to work for over a month. The medical bills from ER visits, multiple doctor and specialist appointments, the treatments yet to come, and ongoing living expenses are causing their family immense stress and heartache.

The path Shawn, Kate, Nora and Freya find themselves on is one no family should have to take, and we ask for your continued love, support, thoughts and prayers for them right now. Please consider donating; any amount is very appreciated. All funds collected will be used to pay for the costs associated with Shawn's care and treatment and support the family's other financial needs during this difficult time. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your love and support of the Harts.
