The family and friends of " Randy Brooks" are uniting to raise money for funeral expences...

We would like to start by thanking everyone for taking the time to read this..Our Family is in need of help with burial and funeral costs/needs.We are at a financial low and this was not expected.Our Dad (Randy Brooks) has just recently been diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer (Not from smoking),this means it has spread, or metastasized along with diagnosis he was told it was incurable and any treatment other than trying to keep him comfortable was not an option and then he was told he had less than a few weeks to live.He went in because he had been sick and the first doctor he saw treated him for something else and in the mean time he only got worse.After being admitted to the hospital for nearly two weeks and seeing a team of doctors who ran several tests he was given the bad news. He is declining rapidly as we were told could happen.The tumor has grown and the tube that was inserted to help keep some of the fluid and pressure off his lungs is no longer helping and he is in more and more pain and suffering unable to breathe.At this point he is completely dependant on someone to do almost everything for him around the clock (Update: A of yesterday 3-28-12 he was assigned a 24 hour in home nurse..While these are the toughest times we are so grateful for the days we do have.He is a great man who has always looked out for others now we can only hope that all of the caring he has done for others even those he didn't know will come back to him...All donation amounts and donors can remain anonymous if you wish..There is no amount to small and every bit is a big help.
Thank you for your support!!!!
