My dads fight with cancer has been long and painful for our whole family, friends, and most of all him. My dad, Dennis Ray Beard, is only 56 years old and is now a second round cancer patient. He first was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma Cancer in 2009. When the cancer was first found, our family was told that he would not make it because of the cancer's progression but he fought through it and beat it! Then in the summer of 2012 he was diagnosed with Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer and it has become progressively worse over the months. Chemotherapy and radiation did not work for him this time and the tumor continues to grow. During his most recent MRI it showed that the cancer has spread and he now has a tumor on his spine. They have not gave him or our family a time frame but they did tell us that his chance at beating his cancer this time does not look good at all. As you can imagine, this has been terribly hard on our entire family but most of all for his wife Debbie Beard. He was the sole provider for the two of them untill he became ill and could not work. Debbie had to step up and get a job to support them. She takes care of his every need while still working a part time job, trying to pay bills, and worrying about everything on top of it all. She is a very strong women but one person can only do so much. The funds that are raised will be going directly to Debbie Beard to assist in paying their bills such as rent, water, power, gas, etc.., help with any medical assistance that my dad needs, and if the most unfortunate happens the funds will go towards funeral cost. My dad is a very prideful and hard working man and would never in his life ask for money from anyone but his wife needs help so im asking for him for a donation of what ever amount you can afford to spare. Every penny of the funds collected will be going to the care and support of Dennis & Debbie Beard. As of right now, my dad is at MDAnderson waiting for more information about the tumor on his spine that they just found. He is on a lot of pain medications that seem to be being less and less affective in keeping him out of pain. He is a husband, a father, a grandfather, and a friend. Every donation is appriciated! Please pass this information on to your friends and family. We would also like to ask for prayers. Thank you very much for giving your time to read this, our whole family thanks you. As we find out more information I will update on his situation.
