Support Ben's Battle

$11,440 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 117 people in 42 months
On May 23, 2015 my life changed with a blink of an eye. I was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. I am a 35 year old proud father and husband of two ( 8month old boy & 6 year old daughter ). I never thought in a million years this would happen to me and my family, so now my view in life has changed dramatically. Think on those days when you are arguing with your significant other/wife/family it's not worth it just give plenty of hugs and kisses and call it a day. It's funny when you used to be the man of the house and get to do what you want but now that I have this AML I' ve been cooped up in this room for a about a month and half and going crazy on top of that I am hairless, sensitive and emotional like girl, peeing blue to green then to yellow and white, bathing out of a sink because I am hooked up to an IV for 24hrs, deprive of sleep because the nurses and doctors are constantly probing every orifice of your body, and get to eat the wonderful tasteless food. I apologize if all this don't make sense grammer wise and that my story is all over the place because I am currently on chemo as I am writing you my story. With your help and support this will help out my family tremendously. I will fight this nasty disease and overcome this; this will be a victory for my family and my supporters. Thank you very much and God bless.

Cancer is a devastating event in which effects and surprises millions of people worldwide. Fortunately, the various types of cancer can be treated. Our families previous goal of $10,000 wasn't quite reached and with the high cost of cancer treatments, our new goal to reach is $50,000. We are overwhelmed by the kindness and love of the families, friends and strangers alike whom already donated. Seeing how positive the first donations went, our family is confident in reaching the new goal of $50,000-we need your help now more then ever! Thank you & God Bless

Ben, Your future is bright my friend. You will win this battle. We have not doubt. You have a long life ahead of you. This is just a setback in your life. We know you will continue to be a wonderful dad, if not better. We know you will continue to be a loving and caring husband, if not better. We know you will continue to be our great friend, if not better. Your strength and love for your family will help guide you through to better days, we are sure of it. We still have many things to do together my friend. We are praying for you. We love you.
