Join Dale as he fights against Prostate & Bone Cancer. Funds will be used for medical costs & expenses not covered by insurance.

~~ See Below for New Updates~~

In Feb 2008, Dale, was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Prostate cancer some say is an "old man's disease", as most die with it and not from it. From the onset the PSA levels extremly high, Dale had external beam radiation and radiation seed impantation. This was then followed by 2 years of hormone therapy.
Feb 2012 test results and body scan confirmed that the Cancer has spread to the bones. New treatments have begun, with extensive hormone therapy. Monthly visits to the doctor to retest the spread. Praying that this treatment works, as chemo will be the next step. Most of the med's are experimental, and not completely covered by insurance.
Currently Dale's spirits are good, and most days able to tolerate the pain. Dale is married to his wife Tracy for 9 years. He has 3 children, Josh, Jessica, Jordan, and 1 granddaughter Mackenzie, also 2 stepsons, Robert & Chad. He has a great support system of family, including his mom Edye Brookshire & sister Janine, and numerous friends.
Dale is in the battle of his life right now and the mounting medical bills are a worry we would like to take away from him. Thank you all for your donations, support, and most importantly prayers. Feel free to call or stop by for a visit, it is the best medicine. We believe in miracles and we pray for one each day.

~~Update~~ 4/5/12 Dr visit went well. Lab results in, PSA has gone down. New med's are slowing cancer down!!!

~~Update~~ 4/21/12 As stated above PSA is down, go to doctor again next week. Pain increases in the bones. Please pray for Dale's comfort during this time.

~~Update~~ 4/22/12 DalesFight Benefit was a huge success, raising over $2000. Thank you to Linda, Jim, Edye, and all the volunteers who help organize the event. The music was awesome and food even better, especially the World's Largest Tub of Banana pudding!

~~Update~~ 4/27/12 Thanks to everyone that contributed to DalesFight at the dance in Mesquite, Tx. Your generousity is greatly appreciated, we raised $152.
A special thanks to Pete, who donated his entire salary for the nite of jamming!

~~Update~~ 5/09/12 Went to doc today to get hormone therapy. Shot in stomach is more painful than before. Bones still achy, but manageable at this time. Did not run PSA this time, as will wait til next month. Will see cancer research and treatment doc tomoro for more information.

~~Update~~ 5/10/12 Cancer Research doctor appt went very well. Good news is the course of action right now with the Hormone therapy is right on track. If and when the PSA begins to climb, will have to begin some kind of chemo, possibly pill form. New research is being done in the treatment of prostate cancer, so only God knows what will be available next.
