UPDATE July 2017: Eric has entered hospice care and has stopped all cancer treatments. 


UPDATE 3/2015: Since Eric's original diagnosis in April 2014 he has undergone a colon resection surgery, 6 months of chemotherapy, and the family is now preparing for the final surgery to eradicate the disease. Recently Eric had a surgery to clear the left lobe of his liver of the cancerous spots that were on it. That surgery was a success and Eric is now moving onto the final steps of getting rid of his cancer! He has been off of work for a couple of weeks recovering from step 1 of his liver resection surgeries. Eric will be able to return to work between surgeries, but when he has his final surgery at the end of April he will be unable to work for 6-8 weeks. The hope is that by their daughter Emilie's 1st birthday Eric will be cancer free! 

Candice and Eric need your support and compassion as they face continuously mounting medical bills, life expenses, and raise their beautiful baby girl. Your financial gift will ensure their focus stays on the day-to-day health of their growing family. The amount raised so far is amazing! But most of that was raised when he was originally diagnosed and has been spent. Eric has been a patient at 4 different hospitals with over 20 doctors; that's a lot of bills rolling in every month! 

It’s time to step up and stand up with the DeBoer family. Together, ‘how to pay for it all’ is one stress that we can eliminate from their lives.

They are extremely appreciative of those who have already given and those that continue to pray for Eric's healing. 

******************************************************************************************************

No couple imagines counting down the final weeks of their first pregnancy by preparing for cancer treatments. Eric and Candice DeBoer are expecting their first child on May 21, 2014, but on April 29, 2014, they learned that Eric was diagnosed with cancer. In the coming months, the DeBoer family is facing both the exciting and new challenges of a newborn and the rigor of a cancer battle; adversity that need not include financial strain.

Candice and Eric need your support and compassion as they face medical, life, and baby expenses. Your financial gift will ensure their focus stays on the day-to-day health of their growing family.

The National Cancer Institute reports that the average first year expense for a male fighting colon cancer is $51,812. http://costprojections.cancer.gov/annual.costs.html Add another $10,000 that the Baby Center estimates for the expense for Baby DeBoer’s first year. http://www.babycenter.com/baby-cost-calculator
