The family and friends of Gary are raising money to help offset the costs associated with his insurance, treatments and recovery.

In October of this year, Gary heard the words no one wants to hear-he has cancer of the esophagus. This was such a blow to him and the love of his life-his wife Lori.

Two years ago, Gary lost his job as a lead installer. He married his soul mate early last year. This spring, Lori lost her job of 26 years at Lands End. As they struggled through financial hardships, they took comfort that they had each other. In July they moved to Oshkosh to be closer to his children and Gary was blessed to get a job offer. Then in October came the devastating news of his cancer.

Gary is looking at surgery, radiation and chemotherapy to battle this disease. He currently has COBRA benefits which will be at his expense. As well as many costs that are not covered by insurance. His family and friends are hoping to raise money to cover some of those expenses so Gary can direct all of his energy to fighting his cancer.

Gary has a strong spirit and the love of his children, wife, friends and family. We know he can beat this!
