My name is Debbie Fahmie and I have been blessed to know Bill and Pam Haas for several years not only professionally but on a personal level. I find it hard to believe how many times I have contributed to a worthy cause through Go Fund Me, however I have never initiated one. I am doing so today because I feel so helpless! I desperately feel the need to assist the Haas family in their dire need in any small way that I possibly can, and through the love and support of my family and friends, I hope to help ease some of their emotional and financial burdens.

It was just 6 weeks ago when a seemingly healthy Bill Haas was biking 2 miles into a hiking trail photographing nature to share the beauty of the world with others when suddenly he experienced an event that led to brain surgery on his and Pam Haas’ anniversary. The shocking diagnosis came back that he had a very rare form of cancer and that it had already spread to several parts of his body. Doctors had expected him to participate in a clinical trial
which Bill and Pam were feeling very positive about starting in a week from now. However, things recently took a turn for the worse. Fast forward to today when the cancer has aggressively spread and Bill is again hospitalized, sedated and on a ventilator trying to fight the good fight.

Bill is surrounded by his loving family with many out there praying for a miracle.

As you can imagine, the hospital bills are exorbitant! On top of that, Bill is self employed, so just the fact that he is unable to work has had a financial impact on the family. I am hoping to raise funds to financially assist in any way possible.

There are many folks out there who have asked me how they can help. All funds raised will go towards assistance with medical bills and any other financial obligations the family has. Any small contribution that you can make would be greatly appreciated. We are asking everyone who reads this to please share on your social media page. On behalf of the Haas family, thank you for your positive thoughts, prayers and support.  We are blessed.

I can’t even imagine the challenges that Pam, Rachel and Luke will face as they begin this new journey of life without their beloved husband and father. What I do know is that each of you has made that journey just a bit easier due to your financial support and heartfelt sentiments that went out to the family. May each of you be Blessed for the Blessings that you have bestowed on the Haas family in their time of need. I am so grateful for each of you.

Today was such a bitter sweet day. We said our final goodbyes to a wonderful human being, Bill Haas. The amount of love and compassion that was poured into his Celebration of Life Mass was inspiring. The stories told by the family members helped us understand this amazing person who lived among us for such a short time. The musicians who came out to share their talented voices in his sending off were a beautiful testament to power of music to transcend words in a time such as this. I can’t thank you all enough... those who were a part of today’s ceremony as well as to those who have supported this campaign. It means the world to the Haas family. Please continue to share out this Go Fund Me. It will definitely help to take just a small bit of the sting out of such a great loss to the family. May God Bless you all! Hi

I am completely overwhelmed by the support and love that has been shared to the Haas family during this tragic time. THANK YOU so much for the part each of you has played. Arrangements are being made for a Celebration of Life for Bill and will hopefully be finalized soon. The viewing could be as early as Monday with a Celebration of Life Mass on Tuesday. As soon as dates, times and locations are finalized, I will share it with you all. Please continue to pray for the family to feel the comfort and peace of God’s hand and continue to share out the Go Fund Me campaign. The small bit that we can play in helping to reduce the financial burden is the very least that can be done to help this family overcome their suddenly unanticipated loss.
