This is the Ron's Road 2 Recovery Fund. Monies will go toward Ron's medical costs and related expenses.

It has been a long road for my husband Ron. He was diagnosed with Cancer in 2005 as the result of a routine physical. He had just turned 50 years old and had no symptoms.
Since then, Ron has endured numerous surgeries, radiation, chemotherapy, and hospitalizations. He has only had a brief remission- the Colon Cancer reoccurred in both of his lungs. Ron is disabled and unable to work.
Even with insurance, the financial toll on our family has been tremendous. We lost our home. We keep struggling to pay the bills. We have cut back all we can.
Ron is considering a clinical trial. Participating in this will require traveling 200 miles, at least once a week, With the high cost of gasoline, this will be an additional burden. But Ron wants to do this, knowing if it doesn't help him the research may help others.
If you know Ron, I am sure you would say "he's a heck of a nice guy." We met in college and have been married for over 25 years. We have two beautiful daughters and live on an island in the Pacific Northwest. Ron has a long history of mentoring young people. He has been a teacher and a "big brother" to troubled teens. He is currently a youth group leader at our church. Ron's interests include computers and the outdoors. He loves to capture the beauty of nature with his camera. Thank you for your prayers and support. ♥
