The Story

Steve Mills and I have been friends for years, meeting when we both worked for a local radio cluster here in Wichita.  He is one of those rare best friends you have in your life and treasure.

Steve has stage 3 mixed cell Hodgkins Lymphoma & is struggling through chemo.   The out of pocket costs Steve has to pay of course are pretty steep.  NO INSURANCE, waiting for the new insurance to become active, looking for the most effective treatment and team to handle his care.  Steve now lives in Allentown Pa, not far from Philly and is getting excellent care, but for whatever reason, the universe is conspiring to make Steve's journey challenging, difficult.  We just keep talking and praying and putting our heads together and remind him that he is loved, he can get through this and that he deserves the best treatment.

Well, I had my port replaced about a week ago.  The area is still super sore.  I have also noticed pain in the area where they did the biopsy.  Will talk to the doctor about it this week when I visit.  Just praying for the best outcome.  Please hold your loved ones close to you.  You never know when they will not be by your side.  I, will continue to KICK CANCER'S ASS.......mainly by keeping positive and doing what I live to do......being a good husband and doing radio!

HELLO EVERYONE...
I KNOW ITS BEEN A WHILE SINCE ONCE OF US POSTED...LOTS HAD GONE ON...STEVE IS NOW AT A GREAT NEW GIG IN ALLENTOWN PA AND IS DOING WELL AND HIS EMPLOYERS WERE KIND ENOUGH TO MAKE SURE HE IS INSURED.  HOWEVER, NEVER A SUNNY DAY WITHOUT A CLOUD OR TWO...HE WILL BE HAVING SURGERY TO REPLACE A NON WORKING PORT WITH A NEW ONE ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF HIS CHEST.  AND THE HOSPITAL, ALTHOUGH THEY'RE WILLING TO WORK WITH HIM ON THE EXPENSES HE'S ACCRUED, HAVE ASKED FOR SOME CASH IN ORDER FOR THEM TO CALL EVERYTHING EVEN.  SINCE TAKING THE NEW JOB, HE NO LONGER QUALIFIES FOR A COUPLE OF THE ASSISTANCE PACKAGES THAT WERE GOING TO PROVIDE HIM WITH SOME HELP.  YOU EITHER MAKE TOO MUCH MONEY OR NOT ENOUGH...A CONSTANT STRUGGLE.  SEVERAL "FRIENDS" HAVE TOLD US THEY HELD FUNDRAISERS FOR HIM, BUT THOSE MONIES HAVE NOT APPEARED.  SO HERE WE ARE ASKING FOR YOUR HELP ONCE AGAIN.

WE HAVE BEEN DOING A LOT OF WORK, VISUALIZING, PRAYING, WORKING ON SUBMITTING TO THE PROCESS OF TREATMENT AND STEVE'S SPIRITS ARE MUCH BETTER THAN THEY WERE WHEN HE FIRST STARTED  THIS JOURNEY...DOCTOR'S REPORTS ARE PROMISING...THE TUMOURS ARE SMALLER.  A VERY GOOD SIGN.  WE JUST NEED TO KEEP UP THE FIGHT, PRAYING FOR GUIDANCE AND ASKING FOR HELP.  SO CLOSE AND YET SO FAR AWAY, ALL I CAN DO IS ASK YOU TO TAKE A MOMENT AND PUT YOURSELF IN MY PLACE, FAR AWAY FROM ONE OF MY BEST FRIENDS, UNABLE TO HELP IN ANY WAY REALLY BUT TO BE THE VOICE AT THE OTHER END OF THE PHONE AND HERE...

PLEASE IF YOU CAN...SKIP THAT NEXT FANCY COFFEE AND HELP MY FRIEND...

THANKS SO MUCH...YOU HAVE ALL BEEN A BLESSING.
