Helping Stephen Fight!

$33,660 of $60,000 goal

Raised by 455 people in 5 months
Created November 27, 2017
On April 23, 2017, we stood in a beautiful chapel in Saint Augustine, Florida and watched Wade and Stephen commit to each for life through thick and thin. Heartbreakingly, they are already facing their first real challenge.  A few weeks ago Stephen was admitted to the hospital with what doctors informed them were gallstones. After further examination ​the doctors discovered a lesion on Stephen's pancreas. After a biopsy and two days before Thanksgiving, Stephen received the diagnosis of Stage 3 Pancreatic Cancer.

As absolutely devastating as this is to us all, we are dedicated to doing everything we can to help Stephen and Wade get through this unimaginable time. Although Stephen has a stable job and wonderful support there, the co-pays, co-insurance, and deductibles will have their out of pocket costs conservitively at $22,000. 

Stephen and Wade will need to put all of their focus and energy into recovery and healing. Taking even the smallest amount off of their plate will be vital.  

Please join us while we surround Stephen and Wade with love and support!  No donation is too small.

Think of your donation as something concrete:

A $50 donation pays for one of Stephen's chemo treatments.
A $25 donation pays for Stephen to eat healthy fresh food
A $100 donation pays for roundtrip transportation to and from chemo.

Evey single dollar helps to save Stephen's life and to encourage him to keep fighting! 

We thank you in advance for your generosity and kindness!

Hi Everyone! Stephen got his first CT Scan results today after starting Chemo. Though the tumor has not started to shrink yet it has also not grown or moved at all. This is very positive news! Stephen will continue to undergo Chemo with the hope that the tumor will start shrinking in the next few rounds. This will eventually allow him to have surgery to have it removed completely. Please continue to keep Stephen and Wade in your thoughts and prayers. And please continue to share their Go Fund Me page! We are also excited to announce that we are working on a wonderful benefit concert for Stephen here in NYC in May! Details for that will be coming soon. Thank you all for your continued love and support! It means the world!

Stephen is getting his fourth dose of chemo today at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. The next steps are getting a cat scan to look and see how the chemo is doing. Then 2 more months of chemo if it's working. After that the next step is possibly the whipple procedure or advanced radition if inoperable. But overall, things seem to be going in the right direction.
