The family and friends of Patrick Preece are uniting to raise money to help with his battle against lymphoma. Please show your support.

My father Patrick Preece was born on Febuary 2nd, 1964 in Logan, WV. He is 48 years old. He has two sister's and a son Brandon who is 27. He has one biological grand child and 4 adopted grandchildren, whom he loves. When he married my mother Donna Preece he took my sisters and I on. He has been the only man in our lives we have known as a father. When he was diagnosed in April 2011 with Lymphoma, we were scared and thought the worst. We believed it was going to be okay, that we would spend the summer with chemo and radiation treatments and that would be it. However, we found out his cancer had returned after just 5 days of treatment stopping. The cancer is Aggressive Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma otherwise known as Blood Cancer.
Lymphoma is a cancer of the lymphocytes, a type of cell that forms part of the immune system. He needs a bone marrow transplant which can only be done in Seattle. They moved for this reason and are now both far from home and family. He is currently in Seattle Cancer Care Alliance for treatment and have been since the middle of January. I am asking for donations to help them towards his treatment and to cover the cost of accommodation, as their funds are almost non-existent. With all the time off, my mother has had caring for my dad, she's probably facing unemployment.
We have all pulled together as a family and stayed as positive as we can through this. I know there are other causes out there, but this is particularly close to my heart. Please show your support by donating through this site. The donation's to Patrick Preece will pay for his Medical bills, his treatment, and other living expenses. Thank you to everyone who has supported us through this difficult time.
