Help the Platow Family

$19,524 of $35,000 goal

Created February 28, 2018
While visiting family on Long Island, NY this past Christmas my cousin's husband, Eric Platow, wasn't feeling well and went to the ER. He found out he had blood clots and within two weeks of that found out he has stage 4 esophigal cancer. Since his diagnosis and returning to his home in Florida he has been hospitalized 3 more times. He can barely eat or drink and recently had his kidneys begin failing due to strong antibiotics meant to kill an infection at his chemo port site. Currently, he is in the hospital on dialysis waiting to get well enough to begin chemo again. Eric and his wife, Rachel, have three boys ages 13, 10 and 2. Rachel is a stay at home mom who is homeschooling the boys. She has great friends and neighbors but no family close by. Needless to say this family needs our prayers and financial help for their mounting medical bills. Please consider giving a small amount to help this family with their bills.

On July 10, 2018 Eric found his healing on the other side of eternity. Information regarding his memorial service being held Sunday, July 29th will be available soon. The family is overwhelmed and grateful with the outpouring of love and support everyone has been providing. Due to mounting medical bills, funeral costs and a future without Eric, they are kindly requesting monetary donations to the Go Fund Me in lieu of flowers. Thank you again for all our support.

Update on Eric:
Doctors have shared that cancer has spread to other organs and he is fighting an infection to which they cannot find the source. Once stabilized, they will send him home with hospice care. Your prayers have been felt by myself and my family. I appreciate everyone who has lifted Eric and family in prayer. God is still able!
