Trying to help a friend who was diagnosed with lung cancer. He wants to help raise money for his family to help them live.

Hello all! I was recently rediagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma. At first, I was pretty hopeful. Today, my prognosis is not looking so good. The tumors in my left thigh are still there, and is a minimal hindrance. The tumor i...
n my left lung has grown exponentially and has collapsed that lung. That the Cancer has metastasized means, I’m at Stage 4. What Stage 4 means is, Death is real, and possibly imminent.

Some of you are very close friends, others are blood family, and some are mere acquaintances. I appreciate and value all of you. I’m currently in the hospital, recovering from a few things. I was in the ICU a few days ago, I could barely breathe. I originally came in for pain management. Things got out of hand. Now I’m working on getting my strength back so I can return home. I don’t see this happening, I see a wheelchair/walker combo in my future. I cannot do any kind of physical activity without my heart rate reaching 130 or higher. That’s danger
ous, very much so. Anyone who knows me, knows, I’m no slouch, this is driving me nuts.

Some of you are going to ask what you can do, if anything. If you live close by, and know us, come visit me and my wife. Please don’t ignore us because you are uncomfortable or don't know what to say. Come take my son out for a few hours and keep his mind occupied on something other than his dad dying. Sometimes, Aidan could use a break from us, and we from him, especially his mom. Sharon is overwhelmed trying to keep everything balanced and going smoothly. She’s outstanding and I could never had been given a better wife, I am so grateful for her.

Some of you have stepped up and done some of these things already, and I thank you. I cannot express my appreciation enough. We require more. We really do. Those that cannot provide any physical support, who do not live nearby, we can also use financial support. All the copays and other medical bills are adding up and some items are not getting paid. I don't know what the appropriate manner is to do ask for money is, I've never done it, I just know my family needs it.

I know that not all my FB friends are going to see this. If you know someone we both know, please tell them. It's not a secret.

Keep praying for me and my family we really value the prayers.

My neighbor mowed my lawn, we didn't ask him. We've barely ever spoke to him, he just did it. God bless the man. I can't wait to thank him in person.

God bless you and lots of love"
