He is struggling with Stage 4 bladder cancer and the battle only seems to be getting more difficult. He has already lost his bladder and prostate and gone through several rounds of chemotherapy… all of which has not been helping… the cancer is growing. :( :( :(
They are now looking to start Immunotherapy which is somewhat of a new concept and he is said to be the only patient in the area. The doctors are optimistic that this may help. However, the treatment is extremely expensive (worse than chemotherapy) and we aren’t sure how to they are going to pay for all of the bills racking up, let alone the upcoming infusions.
The cancer and all of the procedures are affecting his ability to handle everyday life… let alone, how to juggle all of the bills coming in. We are hopeful that this new Immunotherapy will help and that he will soon be able to handle daily activities a little better. Any sort of donation or suggestions would be gratefully appreciated.
Al is a husband, father, grandfather, friend, and devoted in his religious and volunteer efforts.
For those of those who know our dad, we’re sure you’re here because you love him … but for those of you who may not know him, we’d like to explain our mission is very heartfelt.
His personality is very warm and giving and full of integrity. He is the kind of guy that always wants to help, guide, and support others - specifically seen in his several efforts of how he cares for his family, previous foster children and others, and giving back to the community and church.
He is very passionate. He has been an entrepreneur, always put his family first, taught him-self and mastered many crafts - specifically woodworking, all things remodeling, and entrepreneurship. Whether it’s helping out someone to fix their child’s rocking chair, or remodel an entire house or create some amazing furniture pieces… whatever it is, he will leave you wondering how he did it.
Our parents have been through several extremely trying challenges.
Especially as of lately... not even including the cancer. They deserve a break!
Thank you for taking the time to read this and for your consideration.
