The Rhoads Family

The Rhoads family has had a challenging couple of years with many doctor appointments, trying to pinpoint what is going on with Dave’s health. In July, he was diagnosed with MSA (Multiple Systems Atrophy), which is a Parkinson’s-like disease, along with a few other diagnoses. This has been a long, hard road for them as Dave has been in pain. He has his first appointment at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota on November 10th. The doctor said for them to plan on being there for a week. Please be praying they will get some more answers and clarification from the doctors.  They are hoping to find a more definite diagnosis while there because they aren’t 100% sure about his diagnosis right now. Also, pray they can help Dave manage his pain and other symptoms. We know God is always in control and we pray Dave and Emily can clearly see him working in their lives. We know they will truly covet your prayers for their family. Many want to know how else they can help, so this GoFundMe is also for that purpose. It’ll be a blessing to help with their travel expenses as well as their many doctor appointments that have piled up. They will be appreciative of every dollar if you feel lead to give, and they will certainly be blessed by your prayers!
