My name is Ashlie, Rich's youngest daughter and middle child. Last August, we received the news that my father has Stage 4 Renal Cancer. They removed the kidney as quickly as they could. When the kidney was removed, it was swollen 3x larger than the normal size. After an extensive recovery, he began chemotherapy in October. Rich has been undergoing a series of Chemotherapy treatments along with Radiation treatments. In Febraury, we got the news from the doctor that the cancer has advanced so far that they can't pinpoint what kind of Kidney Cancer it is. The doctor continued by saying he can't say for certain that Rich will see 2014.
What We Need & What You Get
My goal is to raise $5,000 by May. Here's where the money will be going
- Medical Bills
- Funeral Costs
If you help us fulfill our goal you will get the statisfaction of helping an Eastern Iowa family care for their father and husband.
My mother, Rich's wife of 20 years, has been trying to pay the mounting medical bills with her 9-5 career. You'll never hear her complain but you know it's nearly impossible for her to keep the home bills paid along with the medical.
