Warren Duffy's Assistance Fund

$13,525 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 83 people in 14 months
Created October 3, 2017
In April 2016, my dear friend, Warren Duffy, was diagnosed with Stage IV brain cancer.  During his 18-month battle, he has remained joyful and valiant. However,  it now appears his journey home to Jesus will soon be complete.

Duffy's legacy is one of having blessed a vast number of people through radio and personal ministry. It is my hope that this appeal is able to reach many of those whom he has impacted.

I cherish the many ways Duffy has touched my life. From when I first heard him over the airwaves on KKLA to my riveting initial phone conversation with him that occurred completely by chance (err, that is, by God's providence!), to his deep care for my youngest son, Jason, during his teen years (and ultimately officiating his wedding), to standing by me in some of my darkest times...Duffy has left an indelible impression on my life.

His cancer fight has depleted his personal funds to the point where  his current and mandatory assisted living costs as well as his burial plans are very much in peril. 

Funds are needed immdeiately and will be administered by his devoted wide, Pam.

If you too have been touched by Duffy, please consider a gift to ensure his best possible care in these final days and that his burial wishes are fulfilled.

Thank you and God bless you!

Dear Friends:

Pam called me to share the news that our beloved brother, Duffy, left us this morning of June 13, 2018 and is now in the arms of Jesus. She was at his side during his final days, giving comfort and tender care and receiving the blessing of his inimitable smile.

I know that each of us has been touched in special ways by Duffy's life and have fond memories of this dear man. God used him mightily for His kingdom and is now partaking, face to face, of Duffy's most radiant smile yet!

Pam and I both express our heartfelt thanks for your prayers, remembrances, and financial support during these past months. You helped ensure that Duffy received exceptional care and that his wishes will be carried out for his final arrangements.

Planning for a memorial celebration will take shape in the days to come, and we will be pleased to update you when the details have been finalized.

With warmest appreciation for how you have blessed Duffy and Pam,

John Loftus

Dear Ones,

It has been a little over two months since the picture was taken of Duffy and me celebrating his 80th birthday; and 2 years this month (April 12, 2016}), since receiving the news of the malignant brain tumor and a diagnosis of only two months to live. Though Duffy has put up a good fight and remains on medication to keep his brain from swelling, the impact of that medication, his inability to be ambulatory and aging has taken a considerable toll on the rest of his body.
Without getting too technical, aging skin becomes thinner and just rubbing on the skin (like sheets in his bed) can cause the skin to tear and/or fragile blood vessels to easily break resulting in collections of blood on his skin surface--bruising. These can also be known as pressure ulcers which he has on his heels with a few showing up on other areas of his body. If any ‘pool’ and break open, which has occurred a few times, infection can occur. The hospice team has been wonderful in assessing and acting quickly to arrest the situation. It is extremely painful for him to be moved for bathing or changing his sheets, so he has also been put on a mild dose of morphine. When he is seemingly awake and coherent, he gives that big Duffy smile and somehow all seems well for the moment.
Thank you always for your continued support through prayers and financial gifts. Duffy and I are beyond grateful and blessed.
In His Strength,

Update from Pam:

Dear Friends,
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the generosity, tender responses and prayers from so many!
For many who may not be aware, Duffy was admitted to the hospital on September 16, 2017 with pneumonia. The lesions had returned causing his brain to swell and the cancer had spread to his lungs. His oncologist told me he did not expect Duffy to make it to November…it is now November 21st.
Amidst the uncertainty about where Duffy could receive the best care after his hospital stay, the hospice pastor called to tell me there was an opening in a unique assisted living environment. God also sent an angel as Duffy’s care-giver . . . a strong believer who prays with him regularly and in a home setting filled with sweet worship music, peace and the calming presence of the Holy Spirit.
Through it all, Duffy perseveres…some “okay” days, some bad. Medication has kept the pain minimal (Praise the Lord). He sleeps a great deal, but when awake he has a voracious appetite. Understandably, he has confusion, limited conversations--something none of us ever experienced with Duffy :) - but his few words are often so profound.

If you would like to write, the address is: Warren Duffy c/o Callens Outreach, 1642 Lakeside Drive, Bullhead City, AZ 86442.

Thanks again and God’s blessings to all!
