THE FAMILY AND FREINDS OF KENNETH POSEY ARE UNITING TO RAISE MONEY TO HELP HIM BATTLE LYMPHOMA CANCER PLEASE SHOW YOUR SUPPORT

In January of 2012 my Dad was diagnosed with non Hodgkins Lymphoma. He has a softball size mass in his abdomen and several in his back and neck. He is staying strong spiritually to fight this. He has been told this is a slow growing cancer but in his case wide spread and in immediate need of treatment.
My dad is 64 years old and still has a lot of life to live. His hopes are to be able to go hunting and fishing again with family, which are things he loves most. He is currently on disability with limited health care coverage.
He has suffered through a triple bypass, full knee replacement and shoulder replacement within the last 10 years.

The beginning of February he had a probe put in his chest so they would be able to give him his chemo treatments. He then went to the Dr 2/27/12 to have his first round of chemo and they denied him, told him they would not do it and he could not afford the co-pay therefore they refused to start chemo therapy. Thankfully my Aunt Barbara has found a path to chemo and my cousin Calvin is happy to assist with his transportation and other needs to make sure he can make the long drives to and from Prescott. The need for care is extensive and much more will be required. We have exhausted everything possible getting him this far. We cannot let him fight this alone.

The support that he has received thus far is so much appreciated.

March 11, 2012 Dad suffered major organ failure. He collapsed and was rushed to the E.R. and since been admitted. His kidneys shut down do to a blockage "large mass" rendering them toxic. The kidneys have not been functioning for some time. He had surgery Monday morning 3/12/12 receiving nephrostomy tubes to drain and flush kidneys. Their goal is to wake the kidneys and get them functioning again on there own, if this is not successful he will have to have surgery again receiving stints in order to assist the flow of kidney function.Our hope is to get him in better health to proceed with the treatment for his cancer.

Thank you for any and all support
