Help the Platow Family

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.

Thank you so much everyone for your generosity, prayers
and kind words of encouragement. Update from Rachel:
Eric had chemo this week. He is very weak and barely able to eat. Kidneys are still not functioning but seems to be getting better. Thankful even able to pay a few bills with the money coming in from everyone. Continue to pray for healing and for Eric's strength to be restored.

Thanks so much to all of you who are continuing to love and support us. We are so thankful. Eric finally came home yesterday but his kidneys are still not working. No chemo until they are functioning. He is still on dialysis. Barely able to eat. In a lot of pain. Thank you for continuing to pray for a miracle in my husbands body. That is the only way we will make it through this. Love to you all!
