The other side of cancer

My wife has been hospitalized with Stage 4 cancer, it's in her liver, spleen, and there is a mass behind her pancreas.

Because of this she has been unable to work. There are fundraising efforts that are helping to pay for some of her medical and comfort needs, but on the other side, I've had nothing to replace that income for rent, food, and utilities.

I'm on the verge of eviction after recently being caught up again. Today, an apartment opportunity arose that is well within my financial ability, but I'm so behind, I couldn't jump on it.

So this is where I never wanted to be, with outstretched hands on the internet.

This is for me to keep a roof over my head, and to be able to move into a self sustainable place over the next few months.

Whatever you can do helps. I know there are a ton of these out there, and you can't help everyone. Understand that I'm embarrassed to even ask.

Thanks,
--Dick

This will be the final update to this page, and in 30 days I will be shutting it down.

Jennifer passed away on 11/4/16 at 3:57am. She was cremated according to her wishes.

I have days that are so amazingly hard that I see no hope at all, and magically, the next day I feel normal.

I've been without electricity since October, and I'm being evicted from my current dwelling, but I have a place lined up. What I also have is a lot of accumulated debt, and a payday loan that is eating up whatever is left.

The Next 30 days are going to be a challenge financially, but after that, with strict planning, I should be on an upward path again.

I know it's the holidays, and everyone is broke, and it kills me to ask, but if you have anything to spare, it would mean more than you can imagine.

January 15, I will delete this page. Until then, I will humbly accept any help.

Thank you all for your support on this journey from the other side of cancer. Love to you, and Happy Holidays.

She is heading into hospice this week. On Saturday she had a stroke and has limited communication ability/left side paralysis.

Right now I'm struggling just to keep the lights on. I'm not eligible for paid leave until I've been with the company for a year, so I'm in a tough spot.

Funeral costs, moving, and basic needs are main concerns financially.

Anything you can do will help.

Thank you.
