I WANT MY LIFE BACK


My name is Kathy and I am Rod's wife.  Rod is 72 years old and works full time for a trucking company as a heavy haul driver.  When Rod works, he gets paid.  He does not have paid sick leave or paid personal leave.  If he does n't work, he doesn't get paid.  He has fought and won two round of cancer.  The photo I have used here for our GoFundMe page is when he got to ring at the end of 6 weeks of daily radiation at Virginia Mason Hospital Radiation  Center.  Because of his two battles with cancer, the time from work and the necessary additional costs related to the cancers we have depleted our savings.  Our bucket is empty.  He also has to pay for his own health and medical benefits when he is not working.  The two rounds of cancer have depleted our finanaces and we we have no cushion to cover our costs while he is out of work with his next medical issue.  Rod needs a full knee replacement and soon.  He will be out of work for at least two maybe three months.  Any funds you can donate to our cause will be greatfully accepted and wisely used.  We just want to be able able to pay our bills, keep our house and eat while Rod recovers from his next medical hurdle.  Thank you so much for reading our plea and if you can help us, we will be forever greatful.
