Bob's cancer donations
In 2012, my father, Bob McKindles was diagnosed with Lung cancer. The doctors removed the upper lobe of his left lung and he went through Chemotherapy. Remission was okay for awhile but then in February of 2013 we had found out it started to grow again. So the doctors recommended Radiation treatments. He did radiation for 2 weeks and 2 days. Then, once again, remission. During the winter of 2014 we were told that is was back. My family and I (my mother, Kathy, and my brother, Sean) were all scared. We had so many medical bills to pay for, yet we were told we still had to do chemotherapy. Only this time, it was for "the rest of his life". Then the chemo drugs never worked. SO he went to mayo clinic in March or 2016 and we were told that he has a rare type of lung cancer that only 50-80 people in the world have. I took that really hard. It wasn't easy. He has traveled to Chicago, Milwaukee, and Mayo Clinic just to find treatments, but so far, we've found nothing.
This page is to help raise awareness for my fathers cancer, and to try to help get donations for paying medical bills, and for the amount of money my mother and father have to spend each time they go to a different city for doctors visits. Your support would be SOOO GREATLY appreciated. Thank you.
