We have received some pretty horrible news. My husband has recevied a diagnosis that no one wants to hear. We will know more on Monday but it's not good. We are accumulating medical bills  and other expenses quickly and I'm going to need some help. IF this goes for the worse I'm going to need help with a word I can't bring myself to use. 

I'm at a total loss and honestly I don't even know what I'm doing. I'm pretty much a water works of a mess but doing my darnest to be strong for the best husband in the world. We've been though so much together and we are and have always been each other's support. 

Please pray for us. Please pray for a miracle. I love my husband very very much and the only thing I really want is him to be better and this to go away NOW!

If you are able to help out with a donation you have no idea how much it would mean to us. I honestly don't know what we will need in the amount. I'm sure those of you that have been through the worst may know better than me. Anything will help and be appreciated more than you know.

I am once again making a huge plea to anyone that may be able to help us.

I have a huge loan to pay off on our equipment and what I was hoping to be able to pay to the funeral home the bank is demanding. I need help please anything you could do to help is more appreciated then you could possible know.

I am at a total loss. Not only am I trying to deal with the loss of my husband which is the hardest thing anyone could ever have to face. I'm dealing with trying to settle everything else. When the only thing I want in this world is my husband.

Any donation in any amount is beyond appreciated.

Thank you so much to everyone that has helped. You are more appreciated then you could possibly know.

Hello everyone! The memorial service was nice. Ron would have liked the songs. They were chosen with him or him in mind.

I miss my honey like crazy. Life is quite strange without him here with me.

I hate to ask again but I REALLY need some help with paying for the funeral. I am not anywhere near the amount I need to pay. Any and all help is so appreciated that words can not express how much.

Hello everyone! I know it's been a while since I wrote an update.

It's been a long few weeks. Ron did great through Chemo and Radiation and then pneumonia hit. We just spent several days in the hospital.

We are now home, which is either a good thing or a bad thing depending on how you look at it. Ron wanted to come home and what he wants is what he shall have.

We have a nurse coming in to help us with IV fluids and check on him. Tomorrow we start the IV fluids and we hope that helps.

I am writing this is to ask that you pray for us and send all the positive thoughts our way that you can.

I want to thank all of your for your support and donations. You have no idea how much everything has meant to both of us. Your support allowed us to put up the fight that Ron wanted to fight. He wanted to fight it with everything he has and he's fighting one heck of a battle. I'm fighting right there with him. As I've said many times this Cancer does not know who it is messing with.

I pray that we get another turn for the good and things will be better. Please please pray with me for our miracle to still come through.

Thank you
