My son has cancer, he is a veteran and can get very little help for his medical bills. We are doing all we can but we are running out of money as well. This small amunt will help with his emediate and weekly medical bills and allow him to keep taking his chemo and radiation treatment. Without those treatments he will die. He is only 32 and the prognosis is notgood. Please if you want to support a vet and help me keep my only son alive, please donate anything you can.  We need money NOW!

Just to let everyone know that Joe is now slowly getting off of the chemo and it is rough, but we all appreciate all the help you have given! He will need in home care soon and has looked into it with the VA so anything we get will help with that as well as the rest of the meds he still has to take. EVERY penny helps and we appreciate all your help!!

Joe is trying to get all his affairs in order, he has expenses and bills from medical stuff that he still needs to tray and pay what he can on. He will have visiting nurses from the VA starting soon. Again we appreciate every single donation, from $5 to $500 it all means a lot to us! Please give what you can when you can...losing a child (even if they are grown up) is something I hope none of you EVER have to deal with!

Joe wanted me to be sure you all know, the Dr. has told him the meds are no longer working and there is nothing else they can do. So any money you send will still be used to cover existing medical bills but will also be used to help him be comfortable in the last days.
We do not know how long he has, months at best.
THANK YOPU all for every bit of help and support!

I know the holidays are a bad time to ask for money and you all have family and other things to deal with so I doubt we will get anymore help this year. But I appreciate what you have done so far, it means a lot to us.
Joe has been in constant pain, unable to sleep and throwing up blood and is about at the end of his rope. And besides that I fell and hurt my leg badly a few weeks ago and Don's mom just fell and broke her hip just last night!
Sorry, I hate begging and I Joe hates to have to ask for this help but we are at the end of our rope!!
