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!

Joe has had to have some minor surgery because tumors are growing in his chest and causing a lot of pain. There was infection afterwards so now he has to deal with that. They are trying to make him as comfortable as possible for as long as they can. He is still fighting but has more than once just wanted it all to be over.
THANK YOU all for any and all help!! What you give means the difference between him living a short time in a lot of pain or maybe a bit longer in less pain!!

Well, my husbands mother died on Thursday. She was a wonderful woman and always treated me well and considered Joe her grandson. Without her financial help we will be even more strapped.
Joe has been having serious issues with the tumors in his head and the new meds that is supposed to make that less painful makes him fall asleep at odd times. He was asleep standing at the sink in the bathroom the other day...very frightening.
Any and all help is appreciated and EVERY SINGLE ONE of you who have helped so far are appreciated more than we can ever express.
THANK YOU!!!!

Each time I do this I feel terrible, I feel like I am asking for help I should not ask for. We have spent so much just trying to keep him alive...I almost said and comfortable, but he is NOT comfortable! He is in pain all the time and tries to put on a brave face. He hates asking us or anyone for help, but we have nothing left.
He and we, appreciate more than can ever be expressed all the help we have gotten so far.

If you can, even a small donation is more than we have now, so thank you all for your kindness and for every cent you give!

We are trying hard not to go bankrupt, it should NOT be this way. People who get sick should not have to lose everything just to TRY and stay alive and we should not have to spend everything we have to try and keep my son alive. Our efforts will fail but we still fight to keep him here as long as we can. His pain is more than I can bear. Any and every penny you have donated is appreciated more than ANY of you could imagine!
THANK YOU ALL!! Please give what you can!
