The family of Marvin (Goose) Finden are uniting to raise money to support his battle against esophageal cancer. Please show your love!

Marvin or Goose to many is a man who has been fighting for life for years, maybe not in the sense if cancer which has brought us here, but fromCongestive Heart Failure. He was diagnosed in 2000 and was given 5 years, here we are 12 years later and he is still fighting, and this past month it's been a harder fight than ever. He has been harboring esophageal cancer stage 3 for over a year undetected. This is the third deadliest cancer and hardest to diagnose at early stages because most symptoms are generally normal in life, sore throat, vomiting,etc.

Goose is a husband, son, father, and grandpa. His wife has been fighting with him for the 6 years they've been married and supporting him through this awful journey. She was in a prestige position for this horrible situation because she had been granted long term disability for previous issues, and now here we sit opening the mail last week and her disability is no more.. Their income is gone. The hundreds a months in medical expenses can no longer be supported without your help.

Every fundraiser says "even a dollar makes a difference" and until I had to sit here writing this for my dad I didnt realize how true that is.

Please help this man continue his fight. Help him continue to spread love and smiles daily. Let him hug his dogs and kiss his wife one more day. Please help him see his grandson grow up so they can crawdad fish again. Please help our family so he can have a fighting chance (ironic saying in this situation)
