Angels for Ron cancer Healing fund
Thank you for all donation amounts, shares and prayers so far! Please wait to donate until I have posted update after Ron has finished much needed testing and evaluation assessing his current health status. I am still planning to transition to a more private site. Thanks again for your patience, and God bless you all! Please continue to pray for Ron.
family picture 11/17/2016
Ron is a loving husband, devoted father of 5 with the youngest being 12, one of the most hard working and and integral leaders in his field (heavy industrial construction).
Sadly, Ron was diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer that has metastasized to his bones on October 4th, 2016, while he was hospitalized for an acute case of pneumonia on September 28th, 2016. This was within days of receiving guardianship of our two grandchildren 1 and 2 years old.
September 30, 2016
To say the least, our lives were turned upside down with the cancer diagnosis. On October 1st, Ron's PSA was 692 while normal is between 1 and 4 (0 is perfect). This is the prostate specific antigen, a cancer marker for prostate cancer. The bone scan indicated cancer throughout his bones, and the doctors said only hormone regulators to stop testerone production by way of shots or pills and/or surgery of prostate and testicle removal as well as removal of portions of bones would be the only way to ensure the cancer would not spread to other organs or systems. From that point, pain management would be primary focus. The lifelong side effects would add to that amount greatly. Chemo and radiation are not an option at this point. None of these were options we, as a family, determined would benefit Ron and we chose to think, yet be proactive with what we knew to do immediately.
There were things at home he could start immediately, such as diet changes and the addition of two specific cancer fighting items I had on hand as of October 7th, 2016. The doctor was, and is, in agreement with what we have been doing to help Ron's body begin to heal itself, which it was designed to do. Here is a synopsis of Ron's body responding to what he has been doing so far:
October 13th - biopsies performed & a PSA 660 (down)
October 28th - biopsies are positive & a PSA 170 !!!
(began using essential oils & enzymes on 11/2)
November 10th - PSA at 22.68 ... Glory to GOD!!!
December 14th - PSA 4 (facebook Angels for Ron)
January 11th '17 - PSA 0.69
During this short period of time, we have prayed and researched several options on how to proceed. Go to

We both feel GOD has given Ron's healing process an amazing momentum. There are several healing centers we are considering that have an intensive cancer therapy protocol that will prove to "shore up" what has already begun. Insurance does not cover natural or holistic cancer therapy solutions at this time, and is the sole reason for this campaign.
Expenses include, but are not limited to health & nutrition changes regarding food, supplements, herbs, therapeutic services and devices, travel and lodging expenses, as well as medical consultations and treatments. Ron has begun the process of healing. We believe the goal of him living vibrantly and in a state of wellness is by combining all of these treatments and is necessary for him to have the best chance of OVERCOMING CANCER with GOD's help, and your financial support. Moreover, any place Ron has to travel to will require us to go as a family of 3 that includes our youngest of three children, age 12. A family member will be able to care for our 2 grandbabies while we go to a clinic.
Our family loves and cherishes Ron more than you can imagine. Your financial support will give us the ability to make choices that will increase Ron's chances dramatically, which couldn't be done otherwise. Your decision to give is an investment for Ron to live! Words are not enough to express our sincere gratitude to those who have given and are yet to give! THANK YOU!
ANY donation amounts are greatly appreciated, and updates will be ongoing. God bless you all.
Prayers and shares are a blessing to us as well!
With much love and gratitude,
Ron's entire family!
PLEASE WAIT TO DONATE...
Ron currently has pneumonia. He was scheduled for a checkup from last bout with pneumonia as well as the stomach flu in May/June for last Thursday (08/04), but on Tuesday (08/02) he got a cold, and by Thursday fluid was heard in his lungs. He finished another batch of antibiotics. We are praying this clears up without further complications. Ron needs to be on a consistent IV therapy schedule for the next 3 months to improve his nutrition absorption rate again as well as to fortify his immune system and then a maintenance schedule of once a week for an undetermined length of time afterwards. As mentioned previously, the first month will be 3x's a week, second and third month will be 2x's a week. We have been tremendously blessed by what has been given so far, and by how Ron's body has responded to alternative natural holistic treatments to eradicate the cancer cells! The month of December provided Ron with supplements, doctor consultations, IV therapy 3-4 x's week; and in March at Mexico clinic, and those funds covered 3 passports, 3 plane tickets ( as well as an uncalled for $700 change fee by the airline when we checked in because they were negligent in getting our bags on the plane, I am currently working on getting those funds recovered), clinic fees, driver, and food for the month. Our lodging was graciously covered for the month. All that I just mentioned has certainly contributed to Ron still being with us, and in this, I have no doubt. I am eternally grateful for all who have donated, prayed, and shared!
We thank all the Angels for Ron who have given, prayed and shared.
As mentioned in update #17, all subsequent funds are to provide for a test to see what has the highest kill rate for cancer cells in Ron's body (no two people are alike, nor do they all respond the same to the same treatments); nutritional IV therapy 3 times a week for one month then two times a week for a month with the goal being once a week for maintenance; supplements; and therapeutic devices in an effort to support his quality of life that has great potential to completely reverse the cancer in his body. Thank you, and may GOD bless you all immensely! Any size donation helps. Shares and prayers are a blessing too.
Toni, As an old friend of Ron, I was saddened to hear he was not doing well. He was always a pleasures to be around. A great man who was good at his business, and a great friend as well. Having lost a son ( 40 years old ) to Cancer we feel your pain. My wife, ( Judy) and I will be praying for Ron and all of you for a full recovery in the months ahead. We will also make a contribution. Please put your arms around Ron and give him a big HUG from me.. Lynn Carmody God Bless
Lynn and Judy, Thank you for your prayers, heartfelt comments, he received them and the hug! Ron has always talked so highly of you, Lynn, and I hope to meet you one day soon. Blessings and thanks again for your support! Ron and Toni
