Family/friends of Wayne Morriss are raising money to help with his battle against Prostate Cancer and Secondary Bone Cancer.

Since 2006, Wayne has had West Nile Virus which resulted in minimal brain damage. But, he was not able to return to work.

In 2010, he was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer. The cancer was diagosed too late to get a headstart on the cancer treatment and resulted in two surgeries and discovery that the cancer had spread to the lymph nodes.

After the surgeries, the cancer remained dormant for two years. When the cancer returned in March, 2012 it came back as a secondary bone cancer. Radiation treatments are given when the pain increases in one of the many surviving cancer cell locations.

This type of cancer requires radiation treatments, MRI's, CAT scans. Financial assistance organizations do not offer assistance for Radiology treatments or procedures.

Wayne will go through "infusion" treatments for the next two years. The infusion helps to strengthen his bones.

His PSA test results two months ago showed his level was at 8.0 but the latest PSA results as of Oct. 2012 have gone up to 11.18 and his oncologist is preparing to start with a different plan of treatment.

Wayne and his wife Pam, only have their Social Security benefits and a small retirement check as income. Their income is not enough to pay bills, buy groceries, travel expenses and pay the ever increasing co-pays and radiation treatment expenses not covered by insurance.

Every aspect of cancer is costly. Not only financially; but mentally and emotionally. We need financial assistance to help us get the help we need to fight it.

We appreciate any and all support!
God Bless You!
