This is for my step-father, Robert Malin.  He has been diagnosed with a rare kind of cancer that is attached to his sacrum.  His diagnosis was in mid-February and next week April 10th he will start cancer therapy.  For this him and my mother, Marie, will need to live in Boston, MA for approx. 4 months.  It is a long road including radiation and multiple surgeries but is curable.  Although the American Cancer Society is a blessing there are still numerous expenses related to this illness and caring for Robert and Marie. Please help and give what you can to reduce the financial stress on them.  They have enough to worry about.  My mother may also need special care and support as Robert was often the care-taker in their relationship.  She has Multiple Sclerosis that is often aggravated by stress. Update: 5/14/18 Although Robert's 6hr surgery to remove his tumor went well. He had a major brain bleed (stroke) on Saturday morning and has been non responsive since. The extent of damage is unclear at this time.
