     On September 24, 2011 William was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma (bone marrow cancer) He underwent radiation for 3 weeks to shrink a tumor in his right shoulder, in November he had surgery to remove the tumor and rebuild his shoulder, then he went through 5 months of chemotherapy and steroid treatments. I am happy to report he has been cancer free for 2 years and 2 months.

     As great as chemotherapy was to save his life, it in turn has caused multiple other problems. The medicine caused neuropathy, walking was so painful for him. The doctors put him on Lyrica to help ease the pain. He took it for about 6 months until we could no longer afford to pay $335.00 a month for it, he has just learned to tolerate the pain. Just as he got use to dealing with the pain in his feet, his right hip started bothering him. A year ago his doctor told him the steroids caused arthritis in his hip, it is bone on bone, and the only fix is to do a hip replacement. The cost of this surgery with be $32,000.00 - 64,000.00 the hospital needs at least 50% down because we don’t have insurance.

     Please let me tell you a little bit about this wonderful Husband, Daddy, and Pompom! This very patient man has raised 6 daughters and is still raising one more she is 11, and has 5 almost 6 granddaughters . He is a hard working man that has been working in a factory since he was 16. I am William’s wife and it breaks my heart watching this strong man I married live in such pain, and never complains or is in a bad mood, he just deals with it! I could go on forever about William but I will end with this. I pray that no person ever hears that they or someone they love has cancer! If you know someone who is going through it please be there for them, even if all you have to offer is a hand or a shoulder for them or their family. This horrid disease affects a family not just a person.
