The family and friends of Dennis Cyr are uniting to raise money to help with him battle against Kidney Cancer. Please show your support!

32 year old Dennis Cyr from Grand Isle Maine , class 1997 graduate of Madawaska High School was diagnosed with hemochromatosis which is a disease that causes the body to store too much iron then depositing it onto the liver. Doctors then did an ultra sound and saw a mass on his kidney. He then went for a ct scan and they found out the results on the 15th of September, that it was in fact cancer. The name of the cancer he has is Renal Cell Carcinoma, cancer of the kidney. It is urgent and mandatory that Dennis gets surgery and it scheduled for the 11th of October. He will be out of work for up to three months and he is worried about how he is going to provide for his family during this time with winter coming to heat the home , medical bills, etc...
Thinking ahead with positive results from surgery, Dennis will be going for ct scans two times a year for the first five years, and once a year for the next ten years. A ct scan runs close to $800.00 each time. Dennis, (wife) Morgan and two year old son Mason want to thank you all ahead of time for helping during this difficult time as they have to concentrate on fighting this cancer , the worst thing is having to struggle and worry about other things then his health and getting him better. With our help, it will be that much easier so they can focus on taking care of the cancer. The funds will be used for Dennis's medical costs and related expenses not covered by insurance. Dennis, I pray you heal my friend, I hope we can lesson the burden for you all and help you and your young family, very sorry to hear this but be postitve and know there are lots of people that are praying for you all.
