Husband Battling Stage 4 Brain Cancer


My husband, AGE 42, was diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer. He went from being healthy, able to walk and get get around by himself to now not being unable to move without a wheelchair. He has started radiation and chemo. They gave him only fourteen months to live.

He has a five year old son and four other children. Our lives have been changed since June 4, 2014. Financial status has hit us hard because I can no longer work due to his illness as I am his primary caregiver and he is now disabled. It has changed us completely. We struggle day to day, worried on how we are going to pay our bills, or get him back and forth to his treatments. The stress has really taken a toll on us, but especially him.
