Roy Koehler, an amazing man, active Ham radio operator, a loving husband, and father of four, is suffering from cancer of his intestines. He went in for a surgery containing an abscess, only to discover a tumor...This isn't all, however...the surgeons also made a mistake, causing Roy to develop a massive infection in his intestines, and on top of that, he's also suffering from pneumonia. The last time I saw him, he was hooked up to a ventilator and filled with pain killers.

Roy's family needs your help. They are under a huge financial burden, as any one of you would be in this situation, and facing temporary disability and inability to work for a while. They are even considering selling his truck, which is heartbreaking to him and his family. He's been a mechanic for his whole life, working nights and getting minimal rest...he's a hardworking, never faltering man and doesn't deserve the cards he's been dealt.

I've only known this man for three months, but in that time, he's enveloped me into his life and gave to me what felt like a second family. His sense of humor, good nature, and motivation reminds me so much of my own father, and puts him in a very special place in my life and heart. Please, anything you can give would be a huge blessing on this family.
