Dear Friends and Family, On November 2011 I was diagnosed with advanced stage 4 Prostate Cancer, which has metastasized into my bones. I was a 47 year old, full of life, always ready to help others in need. I volunteered my services in the electrical field locally and overseas. We take being healthy for granted until we are personally hit with a shocker, the six letter word “CANCER”. Having cancer has changed my life completely around. Due to metastasis, I fractured my femur and needed immediate orthopedic surgery, requiring a 4 week stay in the hospital. The past 8 months I’ve been in and out of the hospital trying to control and cure this cancer and prolong my life with treatments that are highly costly. The last few months have been a roller coaster of emotional, physical and financial turmoil for me, family and dear friends near and far away. Not being able to collect social security benefits makes it very hard to continue working due to side effects such as weakness and constant fatigue are making things worse for me and my wife. As a result, I lost all my signed projects, once the contractors found out that I had terminal cancer. Being an independent sub contractor/ self employed complicates matters. Paying health insurance is difficult, along with all the medical and monthly bills. I am mentally drained with the agony that comes along with such a terrible diagnosis given all at once, it's hard to overcome, good and bad days, days that are devastating and days full of hope. How can someone cope with all of it at once, when you have been told that you do not have too much time left to live and what is left is just to worry about how are we going to pay the bills, that have no mercy and would never stop coming...? How you can help? You can support me by making a contribution to Give Forward on my behalf. Your generous donation is greatly appreciated. If you feel more comfortable sending a personal check or a cash donation via mail, you can send it to: DANIEL W. HULL PO BOX 4159 LA PUENTE, CA 91747 e-mail: ligiahull@gmail.com With heartfelt gratitude, Dan & Ligia Hull, Family and Friends!
