Lifeline Fund


Doug had a stem cell transplant in November 2014 to treat his multiple myeloma. His cancer was found while he was in prison for twenty-four years for a crime he did not commit; therefore, his treatment was delayed. Douglas has been unable to earn an income for the last 25 years, and Social Security disability turned him down, because he has not worked long enough to earn it. Douglas now lives with his daughter and two teenage granddaughters, trying to contribute as much as he can towards her rent. The chemotherapy he received while inpatient caused him to remain in the hospital much longer than planned. His phone is being paid by a volunteer helper, who can no longer continue making payments. At present, Douglas is making good progress, but still has a long way to go. He has a positive attitude and relies on his faith to bring healing to him. Any and all donations will be used towards Douglas’ living and medical expenses. Thank you for your generosity! To know more about Doug, please take a look at this video:
