Help Troy Williams Fight Cancer

Organized by: Troy Williams

Ten years ago, Troy Williams, his wife Andrea, and their five kids lost their home and everything they had to Hurricane Katrina.

A church group in the small town of Auburn, Nebraska, wanted to help the hurricane victims, and so they brought the Williams family to Auburn.

Despite the huge culture shock of moving from New Orleans to a small town in the Great Plains, Troy and Andrea have worked hard to make a life for their family.

Tierra, their daughter, is at the University of Nebraska on academic scholarship. Their son Tyler is one of the top prep wide receivers in the state.

But then Andrea had a heart attack, and she had to stop working. And now, Troy has been diagnosed with cancer.

Troy continued to work 60 hours every week in Pawnee City, until he became too sick to continue on. After his unemployment dries up, the family will be left with only Andrea's disability income.

Troy needs chemotherapy treatment every week to fight this battle. But since the family is unable to afford the payments, he's only getting chemo every three months, from a clinic in Lincoln that offered to treat Troy free of charge.

Please contribute anything you can to help Troy get the care he needs. His treatment costs over $2,000 each week, plus $120 each time he needs blood drawn (among other health-related expenses).

This while still trying to support his wife and their two young daughters, who still live at home.

Troy's message: 

"We would like to thank you for your interest in our story, family and struggle. We appreciate your understanding and willing to help, and we thank God for people like you willing to reach out. Whatever is in your heart to help us with we will be thankful. God bless."
