10 years ago, my sister Sue was diagnosed with CNET pancreatic cancer. This is a very rare type of cancer affecting less that 5 in 100,000 individuals. Our family has watched Sue, with the support of her husband Brian and three kids, fight cancer with the most courage and bravery I've ever witnessed in one individual. Susan's cancer is now at the point where further treatment is no longer an option.
Through her many doctor's appointments, treatments and trial treatments, her husband Brian has never left her side; if God put an Angel on this Earth, it would be him. Brian fell in love with Susan at 12 years old - she, and their three children (Jennifer, Stephanie, and Cameron) have been his world. Sue and Brian also have four grandhildren, with one on the way! They have had wonderful dreams for retirement, but the reality of Susan's illness has taken away from what these dreams should, and could, have been.
As Susan's sickness and pain has worsened, the number of hospital visits, treatments, and perscriptions has increased. Sue and Brian have done everything they can to physically and emotionally overcome this disease, but financially the cost of living with CNETS has become a signficant burden for them.
This fundraising page is a tool that we're hoping will garnish support for Susan and Brian; whether it be monetary donations, help with meals, transportation to and from Susan's medial appointments, or simply, a message to let Sue and Brian know you're thinking of them.
