Join Daryl in his battle against cancer

Organized by: Julie Cook

Julie's Photo


In February 2014, Daryl a loving husband, father, and grandfather went to the ER to have his blood sugar level of over 600 treated. While he was there, he told the doctor of his sore throat that he had for 4 months. A CT scan revealed that he had stage 4 throat and tonsil cancer. That same month, his wife Gayle, was laid off from her job. He has gone through rigorous treatments of radiation and chemotherapy. These treatments are extra difficult on his body, due to his diabetes. His wife of 44 years has been taking care of him full-time. She cannot afford a home-care nurse. She also cannot get a job because he requires around the clock care. Daryl's medical bills have totaled over $9,000 and he is still receiving chemotherapy treatments. Please consider helping Daryl and Gayle battle his cancer by donating toward his medical bills, his treatment, and for Gayle to get help with his care.
