We are asking for your assistance in helping us to raise money for Scott Averill and his family. Your support is truly appreciated!

Scott has been battling health issues for 12 years. He has been unable to work and has been on a limited Social Security Disability income. One year ago, he was diagnosed with Lung Cancer. He has undergone Chemotherapy and Radiation Therapy treatments. He recently had a PET scan and was told that the cancer has spread. Due to his other health issues, he is not a candidate for any clinical trials. The next step for Scott is to undergo more Chemotherapy treatments. Those who know Scott, know that he has spent his entire life doing whatever he could to provide for his family, despite being limited due to his health issues. His wife, Kim, works as much as she possibly can to help provide for their family. However,  Kim  works as a hair stylist. There is no paid time off, so when she is unable to work, she doesn't get paid. Unfortunately, the amount of time she can work is very limited. This is due to traveling back and forth from the hospital during Scott's numerous hospital stays, taking Scott to endless doctors appointments, and now his cancer treatments and scans. Despite all that Scott has endured, he never complains. His number one concern has always been his family. We are asking for your help in taking some of that burden from Scott and Kim. Our hope is that with all of your support, Scott can focus all of his time and energy on fighting his cancer.
