The family and friends of Dan DeFilippo are uniting to raise money to help with his battle against Thyroid cancer. Please show your support!

"Who would have thought that God would use losing my job to save my life" Quote from Dan DeFilippo when he found out that he had Thyroid Cancer after losing his job.

Dan and Megan DeFilippo were getting ready to have their second child the first part of July 2011. In June Dan found out that he was being laid off and he requested that his company extend his employment to include the 1st of July so they could have medical for their 2nd child due on the 4th. They agreed and Dan thought it would be good to get a check up before their medical ran out. At that time the doctor found a lump in his thyroid, they quickly did a biopsy and found out that he had cancer.

Megan who was due on the 4th went in to labor 2 weeks early and their daughter Grace was born with water on her lungs and needed to be in the nic u for a few days. Dan had his Thyroid taken out the following week and doctors found that the cancer had spread to his muscles.

Dan will need a radiation treatment (where he has to stay away from his wife and 2 daughters for a week). Meanwhile trying to find employment and paying cobra insurance of $1200.00 a month not to mention normal monthly expenses.

This is my cousin and her husband. They are a young family just starting out and they are trusting God for their peace, provision and healing. If you feel that you can help in anyway it would be much appreciated. Thank you for all your donations, support and prayers. You can donate on this site or send a check made out to Dan DeFillipo and send to: 26901 137th St SE, Monroe, WA 98272
