Medical costs that aren't covered and the many other things needed that are not typically a part of every day life for most. Medicines, wigs, caps, are all extra costs that push your budget.

It is with great sadness that Pat passed away today.I sincerely want to thank everyone that helped contribute. This is not the chapter we were hoping for. She is in great hands and will no longer suffer. The past 2 weeks have been very difficult. Once again, thank you all so very much.

More Info

Hello everyone,

Known by old dear friends and family as Pudge, I have always known her as Pat. 26 years to be exact. The love of my life.

Pat has been stricken by stage 3A lung cancer just a week before Christmas. She started chemotherapy Tuesday the 25.

Her first round did not agree with her. She goes today for bloodwork. Hopefully they can pinpoint the issues she is having.

Pat has a long history of major health issues ranging from tumor removals, colon cancer, brain aneurisms and now lung cancer. I tried numerous times to

come up with something short and direct for this but I guess that’s not happening. So between updates on this unfortunate chapter and many visits to the oncologist

and radiologist, you will probably feel like your reading a book. Forgive me for that if you must.

I am trying to raise funds to help assist in the offset of medical bills and the many other things that arise. With Pat not working and me being the only income

I’m sure you may understand that not only the rising economy , but the many other necessities become more of a struggle on one income. We have been stricken by health

issues in the past and I have made some poor decisions on financing, I think this is why I am here to ask for your help.

Please keep in mind that we have always paid it forward in the past and will continue to do so when we are able to close this chapter in our lives.

We are not new to sacrifices, however, I need your help so we can continue assisting Pat on this unfortunate journey.

I want to thank everyone in advance for taking time in reading this and your willingness to help if you choose. Thank you.

Sorry the update took so long. A caregiver has an entirely different meaning than supporting a spouse or loved one.
Lab results had Pat's potassium levels extremely high and her Oncologist told her to go the ER. Two days there and they had it to normal. No one could tell us why they were at those levels. She is still having extreme pain in her legs and is very weak and tired all the time. The Pulmonary doctor called and wanted us in because there was something missed in the x-ray. Now he said that it has spread to her ribs. She is now on Morphine and this is getting scary. I am in contact with some people from the ACS trying to help me manage through some things. I am also in contact with a specialist in Boston. I am going to reach out at my employment and try to get time off. I will need to spend a considerable amount of time away from work and unfortunately the bills and extra things are still coming. Thank you for taking the time to look at this. Please share this with your family and friend. Thank you.
