I, Steve's Daughter is trying to raise enough money to get my father a prosthetic and dentures! anything will help! thank you!

Hey Guys, I want to tell you a story.. Part Good, part terrible...

This is my mom and dad as of right now. They have been married 26 years and they are still in love!

In 2000 dad had an on the job accident that left him partially disabled and for over 2 years of Doctors rehab and surgical procedures he was told that where he was with his injury he was as good as he was going to get. Unfortunately that meant he couldn't return to his normal job. So he began looking into some other fields of work and the schooling or training needed.

While he was doing this research he began to have horrible headaches and nose bleeds. He went to the ear, nose and throat specialist who told him he had a severe sinus infection and began treating him for this. After months of treatment with no improvement, my mother asked the doctor to refer him to a Doctor at U.A.M.S. When the Doctor there saw him the answer was Cancer- Squamous Cell Carcinoma.. There was only one choice, either to remove the infected area or die in a few months. That was October of 2003. And as you see in his pictures, that is what he was left with. Not pretty but he lived. The cancer came back in 2006 and fortunately after months of Chemo and Radiation, it has stayed away. My father can only eat soft foods or liquids because he has no teeth or upper pallet, and he cannot afford to be fitted for them or a Prosthetic. My father has left the house and went in public and toltal of 2 times in the past year! Once to see his doctor, and once to see his Granddaughter born. The reasoning is because he doesn't want to freak people out. And if he knew that i have made this sight he would be really upset with me. My father is not one to ask for anything!! But i'm asking for your help.. He and my mom live off of his disability check and she can't work because she needs to take care of him because of his limitations. I'm trying to raise enough money to get him a Prosthetic and dentures. Anything you can do to help would be a blessing and greatly appreciated.

Thank you!
