Caring for Kevin
Kevin Cyphert had emergency surgery this week for a malignant brain tumor. Neurosurgeons were able to remove half of it. Kevin has a long fight ahead of him involving radiation and chemotherapy. The financial consequences are catastrophic. He is unable to work. His fiance, Ashton, has lost her income during this ordeal to be by his side. They had saved their money for their wedding which was supposed to be March 10 and the funds they had paid to the wedding venue are non-refundable. We have started this page to help him with hospital bills, medication co-payments, and to pay basic bills for food, utilities, and gasoline for their car to get to and from many medical appointments. His daughter Brynleigh has some serious medical needs that require expensive medications as well. We are asking our caring community members to help Kevin, Ashton, Marley, and Brynleigh by donating as you are able, to this Go Fund Me page. Thank you for your prayers and support!+ Read More
Kevin did very well through his 2nd week of radiation. Four more weeks to go, then off for a few weeks before chemo starts. He is tired, but his spirit remains strong...because that's just who Kevin is! We admire him for his courage, strength, and overwhelming love for Ashton, Marley, and Bryn. Thank you all again VERY MUCH!
Update: We are incredibly proud of Kevin's attitude which is half of the battle. The radiation is uncomfortable but he is a real trooper and never complains. His sense of humor is so uplifting to everyone. Thank you all for the generosity, support, love, and prayers! Anne & Dave
We are overwhelmed with the outpouring of support for Kevin. Rest assured every penny will be spent on medical bills and household expenses. Soon we will shut down the Go Fund Me and will be starting a new FB page with updates on Kevin's health. Thank you all for your prayers and support! Here's a picture of Kevin at our house last night.
You all are amazing! The outpouring of support is overwhelming! Kevin was discharged yesterday. In about 3 weeks, he will return to Riverside to begin aggressive treatments for Grade 3 Anaplastic Astrocytoma. Kevin is very touched by all of the prayers, love, and support from you!
