"Pay It Forward for Dewayne Shockey" This family needs our support. We all need to help each other when things get tough.

Dewayne Shockey was diagnosed with a form of brain cancer known as Gilisarcoma and is terminally ill. The family was informed by Doctors upon diagnosis that even if the tumor was removed it would return and become more and more aggressive with time. The initial tumor was removed but as said by Doctors another tumor developed in less than 2 months. Dewayne endured several treatments of radiation and chemo only to have Doctors recommend that all treatments stop because the cancer had reached a point that the treatments showed no positive impact. Dewayne is at home and they are just keeping him comfortable. My sister has been by his side from the beginning, supporting and caring for her husband. They have been married for over 18 years and have 6 children together and 7 grandchildren. Bonnie and Dewayne have lived in their home for 13 years which still has a mortgage that is becoming more and more difficult to pay. Bonnie lost her job of 15 years at a Doctors office due to financial coverage for at home health care running out...leaving her no choice but to be there for her husband and provide the care herself. Due to the financial income that has been lost from neither of them working, it now seems that she will be forced out of her home if the finances for the mortgage payments aren't available. Bonnie has been there day after day caring for Dewayne as the time he has left is quickly running out. Both of them are caring loving individuals that have always been there to help others in time of need but now find themselves in desperate need of someones help. Please find it in your hearts to give what you can. We never know when this could be us. When I found myself in ICU, it happened in a blink of an eye. One minute we are living life as normal the next we are very much in need. Thanks in advance. Sherry Bragg
