Update from Tony -
“One more chemo and nine more radiation treatments. Then, I am told, the following two to three weeks will be the roughest. Kind of hard to imagine. After that, I start recovering.”
Finally approaching the end of this necessary yet horrendous treatment, and can’t wait to have Tony back to feeling good.
Your donations have been an enormous help to Tony and Tiffany. Your kind words, prayers, and encouragement have meant the world to our family.
The journey is not over. Our hope is to remove any financial worry from Tony and Tiffany’s life during this difficult time. Please continue to share their story.

Hey guys, in trying to find the right words to express my overwhelming gratitude for your support, I come up empty. There are no words that describe this feeling. I have never had to reach out before and was very reluctant to do so. But after much conversation with friends and family I was brought to the realization that the situation I am in is much bigger than me. What I didn’t expect from reaching out was that your words of encouragement, support, and the people making sure that this post got passed around would bring me so much strength and comfort. Coming to terms with this diagnosis is one thing, having to come to terms with even the remote possibility that I will not be able to take care of the people I love is gut-wrenching. The earlier post gave you an update of where I am at. Mentally I feel strong, the pain and discomfort, however, are, at times, seemingly unmanageable…. Nothing is unmanageable! I will endure. I thank you all for your continued love, prayers, and support, as the road ahead continues to be a challenging one.

News from Tony from earlier today:
“They are just now letting me out of the Hospital. Was in for five days. The next two weeks will be trying to say the least. But at least I’ll be home."
Tony was hospitalized to help with side effects of all that chemo and radiation he’s had. The good news is, the doctors are confident the medication did its job and no additional treatments are indicated at this time. He will continue to deal with the effects of his treatment for the next few weeks as it continues to work to make him well again. But he’s home!
We are beyond grateful for your donations and kind words. They continue to help Tony and his family more than you could possibly imagine.
Have a safe 4th of July!
