In July 2017Jerry was diagnosed with stage 4 sqaumous cell carcinoma of the throat which spread to his lymph nodes and  down below his collar bone.  Jerry needed to have  all  upper teeth extracted- as well as three of his bottom teeth prior to his radiation and chemotherapy treatments.  This also included having bone structure smoothing which will allow him to be fitted for dentures once he completes his treatments.  Jerry was also required to have surgery to have a port and feeding tube placed prior to  the treatments.   On  August 5th Jerry started very aggresive radiation treatments which he receives Monday through Friday with his last treatment ending on October 24th. He will also need to receive a total of three rounds of  chemotherapy throughout.  Upon completion of his treatments, he will also have to have two surgeries to remove lymph nodes.  As you can imagine, this is taking a toll on him not only physically but also financially.  Throughout treatment and recovery, Jerry is unable to work.  Jerry has no insurance coverage. Out of pocket costs for medications , daily living expenses and all other bills are piling up. He is trying maintain, but  is quickly falling behind. He is unable to supply any support financically for his two daughters, Olivia who is 8 and Ellie who is 7.  Any support at all would be greatly appreaciated and will allow him to aim his focus on WINNING THIS BATTLE and worry less about  the monatery side of this!  This will not only help him with all of the expenses that he is accruing, but also help with supporting his two daughters.  Let's please show him that he is NOT fighting this battle alone!!

As most of you may already know by now, Gary's pet scan results did not come back as we had hoped. In fact it was the complete opposite! On March 16th 2017 Jerry was diagnosed with terminal cancer. With weeks to possibly only months to live. As heart-wrenching as this news was to find out about Jerry, Jerry had yet another difficult situation that he had to face. And that is telling his two beautiful daughters that he will soon become their angel that will watch over them every single moment of every single day.
Jerry, with given has agreed to do an experimental oral chemo treatment. His doctor said that this could possibly prolong his life by a couple of weeks. When asked by his team of doctors Jerry immediately responded with "YES..if it can possibly help save someone else's life let's do it!" So with no further questions asked, Jerry went in for a liver biopsy yesterday morning to determine what type of oral chemo would be best for him. Jerry has been a trooper throughout his journey and has not lost that extremely delightful, witty, crazy sense of humor that he is well known for! Jerry's benefit is March 31st at the Verse Lounge from 2-6p.m. to help raise money for final expenses! On behalf of Jerry, I know that he's looking forward to seeing many of you at his benefit. Even if you only have a minute to stop by just to say hi to Jerry I know that he would truly appreciate it. I hope to see you there!

The outreach of care, support & love towards Moose is beyond overwhelming & Moose is humbled by it. We, his family are so thankful for this support. 
With his recent diagnosis we understand the importance of sending a special message, wanting to call or visit. This said, the past 36 hours have taken a toll & it’s created some concern. Right now, it is of the utmost importance, we make some very personal decisions with Moose & walk next to him down this path as he uses all of his strength and alertness gathering what he can to tell his daughters of what his fate is. We need Moose to solely focus on all of this right now. We ask that you keep Moose in your prayers & thoughts and embrace the memories you each have. Please know, this is harder for us to post than it is for you to hear. 
With thanks - Tonya, Gloria, Shelly, Sondra & most importantly Moose & his girls ❤️
