Cancer is such a horrible thing!
A coworker and friend of my husbands unfortunately has to battle it once again and we’re trying to help out him and his family with expenses.
From the Facebook Page:
Erik’s courage, conviction and beliefs were put to the test back in August of 2004, at the age of nineteen when he was first diagnosed with Stage IIIc Melanoma; while serving in our armed forces at Fort Sill.
After a considerable amount of tests and medical opinions, Erik underwent an experimental treatment to battle the aggressive disease at the University of Michigan Cancer Center. He fought with every ounce of strength he could summon and after a year of treatment, he was diagnosed with no evidence of the disease.
This young couple is now faced with a journey that will test every fiber of who they are as individuals, as husband and wife, as father and mother, as brother and sister and as son and daughter.
The battle is underway and Erik is currently under the care of the Cleveland Clinic Cancer Center. To know Erik is to know without any reservation, he has the resolve to beat it again. He won’t back down no matter how hard the battle becomes and how difficult the news may be. He is a fighter, a survivor and beyond all else, he is the face of perseverance.
