The children of William Baldwin are trying to raise money to help him fight stage 4a throat cancer..Would appreciate your support.

This is very hard to do but I realize we need all the help we can get to see my dad through this. William Baldwin was diagnosed with stage4a throat cancer. He has declined at this time to have a laryngectomy and billateral neck disection for the lymph nodes. We will be facing aggressive treatments of chemo and radiation over the next few months in iowa city,iowa. This means daily trips of 260 miles. In the next few weeks he will be facing having all his teeth removed and having a feeding tube placed. Radiation and chemo to follow immediately after that. My father doesn't have any insurance and he is not old enough for medicare yet. We are using all va benefits available but are being told that they make too much. This is based off last years income when my dad still worked. Doesn't seem right....Anyway, he is a loving husband, a father of 4 children who adore him and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.He ran his own transmission and auto repair business on Johnson Street Rd in Keokuk,Iowa for 25 years. We will do anything it takes to see him through this..EVEN ask for help knowing he probably won't like me putting this out there! I want to see my dad camping again and fishing and going to my son's wedding in September..Absolutely anything will help. KEEP US IN YOUR PRAYERS!!! If you would like to send cards or donations please send them to William Baldwin c/o Diana Steffen 1781 319th street Argyle, Iowa 52619 Thank you...and GOD BLESS!
