Stuart's Pancreatic Cancer Battle

This gofundme has been created by Stuart’s wife & children. Thank you for reading his story:

Stuart is a caring husband, father to 5 daughters, 1 pup, musician and his all time favorite, grandpa to 1 grandson. 

Stuart aka "Stu Boy King"'s first love was music. He was a professional drummer for The Dictators before settling down, becoming a private investigator, and starting a family.

Anyone who knew Stuart, knew he loved to talk and reminisce. He loved to cook, and more so eat. He looked forward to spending time with his family and provided them with whatever he could. He would give the shirt off of his back to anyone.

Recently, Stuart was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic pancreatic cancer. By the time it was diagnosed, the cancer had traveled to his liver and lungs. He was told that WITH treatment and chemotherapy, he had an average life expectancy of 3-5 months. On April 10, 2018 he optimistically entered the hospital to get biopsies of his multiple tumors, in hopes to one day start palliative care. From that day forward his health declined rapidly. He suffered multiple strokes and is currently on a ventilator on the ICU. 

We have been told to make end of life arrangements for Stuart. And within the next few days we are going to have to make some very important decisions as a family. No one can ever be too prepared for a tragedy such as this. However, we were not prepared at all. Emotionally, financially, mentally.

We are asking for donations to help with medical and end of life costs. Any contribution, big or small, would be so helpful.
