Help my father, Fred Meier-54, as he battles stage IV lung and bone cancer. Funds go towards medical costs not covered by insurance.

One month before Christmas of 2010 my father, Fred, received the news that all families pray not to hear. He was diagnosed with stage IV Lung Cancer that has metastasized to his bones. Two fractured vertebrae, one completely compromised by an excessively large tumor, has left him highly medicated and unable to move or function without pain.

At 54 years old, Fred had been employed over twenty years in manual labor before being let go. Running out of both unemployment and disability at the beginning stages of his cancer while suffering severe back pain, Janet, Fred’s wife of 26 years, has been forced to take on an additional job.

Fred and Janet have 3 children, Daniel, Laura and Fredrick. The family continues to grow and has recently and joyously welcomed the addition of Elizabeth and Gunnar Emmit to the bunch.

Family, friends and loved ones will be holding a benefit on March 26th, 2011 at the Fraternal Order of Eagles on Trenton Road in Levittown from 7pm till 11pm. Today we are asking from you to make this a success, as the family is encountering mounting medical and household bills. Please help support this Eastern PA family's benefit by donating to us any gift, great or small. All donations are greatly appreciated, as we would be honored for you to help us out.

Again, we would be tremendously grateful for any contribution you can make. with any donation please include a name of person or business we can acknowledge, and address to which we can send a thank you letter.

Thank you for supporting my father.
