Family and friends of Billy White are uniting to raise money to help with his battle against Prostate Cancer. Please show your support!!

Our dad “Billy White” was diagnosed with type II prostate cancer in May 2011. After routine visits to the doctor he had to undergo bone scans and biopsy’s, which determined he had aggressive and non-aggressive cancer in the prostate. After all 12 biopsy’s, they were all cancerous. He had a serious bone disease called Paget’s , which is a chronic disease that can result in enlarged and misshapen bones. He also has a aneurism on his artier, kidney stones interfering with his kidney functions, has 2 hernias that his bowels are dumping into. Billy also suffers with Osteoarthritis.

Billy was told he had to take 9 weeks of radiation and 2 ½ years of hormone shots. He is currently at Arkansas Prostate Cancer Institute in Little Rock, were he will reside for the rest of his radiation treatments. During this time he will be financially responsible for 9 weeks of lodging and food, in addition to medical expenses not covered by his Medicare. During this time he is unable to work and his wife Shirley is disabled with Diabetes and
Diverticulitis, so they have no household money coming in. His decision as to whether or not he can financially get the treatment depends on his ability, or inability to come up with money for lodging, food, and gas back and forth to Little Rock. He has had 3 weeks of treatments so far but is struggling to get the rest because of no money.

Any help or donations would be greatly appreciated, please help our dad get the treatments that he needs.

Billy is married to Shirley White, and a father of 2 girls: Wanda and Crystal, and 1 son Chad. He resides in Moro Bay, AR.
