The family and friends of David Hokanson are uniting to raise money to help with the expenses associated with his colon cancer.

Dave was diagnosed a little over a year ago with Colon Cancer. He has spent the last year battling this disease with all he had. He had surgery, many rounds of chemo, some experimental procedures and lots of different medicines. However, it was all in vain as he was informed about a month ago that the cancer has spread all over his body and there is nothing more they can do.

Dave is just 45 years old and, like many of us, ill-prepared to deal with this type of unexpected hardship mentally, emotionally and financially. Before he got sick he was the main source of income for his wife Lorea and his 3 kids, who are grown but barely. He has been married to Lorea, the love of his life for nearly 27 wonderful years. They have made a life for themselves and their family in Ferndale Washington where they are surrounded with many many great friends as well as Lorea's caring family.

Our goal is to help ease Dave and his family's financial burden in whatever way we can so they can focus on spending what's left of their precious time together, as well as help to pay for the funeral arrangements when that is needed. Lorea works nights 3 days a week and really wants and needs to be home to care for him, but she needs the money to pay her bills. We want to help with that if we can.

If you know Dave, you know that he would be adamantly against asking for help in this way, but he was always available to help those in need and I think it's time to pay him back. Thank you for your willingness to be a part of Dave's support team. Your donation is deeply appreciated.
