David Keith

First post: Jun 22, 2016 Latest post: Sep 12, 2016
Dave Keith was recently diagnosed with aggressive large B cell lymphoma. He is currently undergoing a very intense treatment plan including numerous chemo therapy sessions, all throughout the next few months. Although Dave's medical insurance will cover some of the treatments, the remaining of the treatments, plus travel expenses to Mayo in Rochester will be quite the financial burden on Dave and his wife Gina.Dave is a loving father (and step father) of  many - enough to fill a sports team, grandpa (also of many), friend, son and husband. 

An outdoorsman grown up in Northwestern Wisconsin, Dave loves hunting, fishing and almost anything that can be done outside (especially playing with the grandkids).

Any money raised will be used to pay for the cost of treatment, traveling to the hospital and hotel accomodations during treatment (for his wife Gina).

Dave is an amazing and selfless person who has always put the needs of others first. Many years ago Dave met his second wife, Janine. Along with his own two children, Dave helped raise Janine's children.  He still remains a father to the three children that entered his life years before. 

Many years later Dave met his current wife, Gina. Again, Dave has taken on the roll of father (and grandfather) to Gina's children. He truly is a blessing!

Even with the loss of his wife, Janine, father Tom, and daughter Patricia, Dave has remained positive about his condition. He's courageous and strong and will pull through!

If you'd like to help, we've set up a GoFundMe account in Dave's honor: https://www.gofundme.com/HelpPapaDave

Let's pull together and give Dave and Gina some financial relief during these incredibly trying times.

We are so grateful for your donations and please know how much this means to us (the family)!! Thank you!!

How we found the cancer:
Dave woke up with pain in left lower abdomen in April.  Went to doctor who found a mass near pancreas and spleen the size of peanut. A week later he had another CT with dye and was made appointment in Rochester, three weeks later, originally they thought pancreatic cancer, so for two months we feared the worse but later we found out it was not that type of cancer which was a huge blessing due to they don't have cure.  We were not telling anyone due to the fact were not sure what he had.

Last Tuesday night we found out he has aggressive large B cell lymphoma.   We went to see his doctor and he was then admitted for treatment due to fast growing cancer. So now we are at Methodist hospital Eisenberg building nineth floor room 304.  

Love you all.
