Kevin Romero's Friends and Family are uniting to raise money to help fight Kevin's battle of Cancer. Thanks for your support!

Throughout Kevin's life he's been very healthy with no signs of any major sickness or disease up until the summer of 2010. It started with the loss of the right side of his facial functions, Doctors diagnosed as Bell’s palsy. With multiple follow ups with Saint Allophones Medical Group Kevin knew something was serious wrong. Kevin started developing cold like symptoms, which was actually pneumonia, which his doctor failed to check, and failed notice, and diagnosed him with a cough and sent him home on cough syrup and seen him once a month for the next three month's. Six month's passed no x-rays or blood tests done in this period of time by this Doctor. By this time Kevin was constantly in bed with no energy, in pain from this cough, finally his wife Madalyn took him back to their urgent care furious at the treatment they failed to do right. she told them he has pneumonia and sure enough x-ray confirmed .The Doctor finally a five-day treatment of antibiotics.

After three more months of no change and he not being able to breathe. Kevin’s wife said we're going to another hospital and took him to the emergency room at Saint Luke’s. If it hadn't been for those Doctors and staff he would have died and his wife and children would be without their loving father and a loving husband. The doctor that seen Kevin knew what was going on right as he described his symptoms, due to her son having the same illness they promptly ran him off for testing and began treating him and gave them the news that night, he was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma a cancer of the Immune System.

The doctor was amazed that he was still alive and that this cancer was not detected earlier. The Cancer finally took its toll and Kevin’s Immune system was down so low that he could not fight his infections no more.
Kevin is now fighting, but with no medical insurance and his inability to work and the little assistance that is provided by the providers, and with his wife being the only income. The Romero’s are in-need of your prayers and support with Medical expenses and treatments that are needed to battle his fight to recovery.

Thanks for taking your time to consider helping the Romero family with your support and compassion to strengthen and bring them hope at this difficult time with great appreciation thank you.
