Update from Tina - Did you know the outlook Keith has been given is not the best odds. Keith and Holly keep their attitudes upbeat and I have no idea how they do it. I would be a complete mess just knowing what I know. They really need our help more so than they will tell anyone so any little amount you can give would be so appreciated. It is serious the funny pictures and smiles are a big cover-up and pick me up as too what is really going on. Thank you. - See more at: http://www.youcaring.com/medical-fundraiser/closing-the-circle-giving-back-to-the-giver/100184/update/98512#sthash.L17gvLd2.dpuf

Keith Howe has assisted so many of us by phone, by forum but, mostly by his support with Holly his wife right by his side. He and his wife need our help now, its time to give back. $1.00, $5.00, $50.00 to $1000.00 and all those amounts in-between.  This money will be used to assist with daily expenses for at least the next 6mths.

Keith started experiencing unusual symptoms last November. Many tests failed to find a cause, but did rule out lymphoma. Then in early March Keith had a hemorrhagic stroke - also known as a brain aneurysm - and was life flighted to Omaha.

The doctors still had no explanation and many additional tests were run, which provided no answers but did rule out lymphoma.

In April, Keith underwent a brain biopsy. Everyone was greatly relieved the biopsy ruled out cancer. It did point to an autoimmune disease. Late April they began treatment, Keith improved for a month or two but then plateaued then slid slightly backwards.

In September Keith started experiencing hip and leg pain. A new enlarged lymph node was discovered. Unfortunately this biopsy finally showed lymphoma.

The doctors immediately ordered the original biopsy from last December to be retested and now that they knew what they were looking for, they were able to identify lymphoma cells. So lymphoma has been present from the start and left untreated for 11 months. This damage can not be regained.

Keith's chemo regime will be very aggressive, involving hospitalization twice for a total of 10 out of every 28 days.

The doctors have said he may feel up to working one or two days a month but most likely not. The business will be bringing in no business, for at least 6mths.

Holly will be unable to find another job, because she will be in Omaha for Keith's treatment will need to be available to care for him. The Howe's have good insurance but that does not cover their day to day living expenses or travel for medical treatment.

The loses the Howe's are experiencing are beyond my grasp and so I ask for your help.
