This is the Ron Taylor, Patriot Forever medical expenses fund. The funds will be used to lessen the burden on his family.

A born patriot whose family served this country in it's formation and in the original congress and who He served in Vietnam in 1967 & 1968 has been diagnosed with small cell terminal lung cancer. Prior to beginning his chemotherapy he was hospitalized for chest pains and found to need 2 stents in one artery of his heart. Thankfully, this was found, due to the fact that had he taken the Chemo without the stents it would have caused him to have a massive heart attack.
He currently is taking Chemotherapy to try and prolong his life as much as possible. According to the doctor's this may prolong as much as 1 year.
His family is unable to afford the expenses associated with this disease and his insurance (which is available through the state for low income families) is extremely limited for coverage.
So far, we have medical bills totalling over $6000 from an outpatient surgical procedure, not covered by insurance, such as an implant of a power port to allow for chemo without blowing out a vein. And, from a heart catheter to implant the stents. Additional charges are forthcoming from the MRI's and CT scans that were done to confirm the spread of the cancer to the bones and other parts of his body.
Ron is a dedicated Father, Husband and Patriot to his country. He is a spiritual man that believes his heavenly Father is watching over him and his family.
Donations to help cover these expenses are greatly appreciated and will help offset the expenses his family will incur when he's gone.
