Grandchildren in Peril (Life & Death)
FAMILIAL ADENOMATOUS POLYPOSIS
I need your help. My wife and daughter died of the same disease of the colon. Both at the age of 39 and both suffered terribly. They now lie side by side in the same mausoleum in Plainfield Indiana.
My wife carried a gene unknown to her and the family that makes this disease hereditary and passes it down through offspring’s for generations. Any child born has a fifty-fifty chance of having the disease.
Out of the four children we had two were stricken with the disease. My middle daughter Anna Lee, and my youngest daughter Beth Ann. My wife Carol died, my middle daughter Anna died and Beth had to have sixty to seventy percent of her colon removed with the possibility of even more surgery at any time. But thank God she is alive now. All of my children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren must be tested for this terrible disease from now on.
Here is the problem and the reason for this writing Beth’s three children, my grandchildren have been stricken with this disease. The twins and their older brother all have the disease. It is terrible and consists of hundreds if not thousands of polyps throughout the entire intestinal system. The entire colon is completely covered with them causing the function of the colon to not do its job.
The only hope of life is to have the entire colon removed and this was supposed to be done by age twenty five. The family is unable to do this and so the children suffer.
I am able to house and feed them, but I need help with the medical costs.
And so I pray and turn to you.
I will be setting up a “Go-Fund Me” but I am letting you and those who read my Bible lessons know what my intentions are. Or you can donate through my Bible site if you wish.
Blessings and thank you.
