Rusty Mills Cancer Fund

From Barbara Hetland:

As some of you may know, my best friend's husband, Rusty Mills, was diagnosed with Colon Cancer last year. He did not have any symptoms and found out that he has Stage IV Colon Cancer which has spread to his liver.

Rusty has been fighting this Cancer with the most positive attitude that I've ever seen. He is a passionate animator and loves to teach. Rusty was even teaching while receiving chemotherapy.

Rusty's wife, Andrea, and Evan, their 15 year old son have been taking care of Rusty. However, things have gotten very tough lately, and they need our help! Rusty has just started a new kind of chemotherapy and the medical bills are accumulating rapidly. Rusty is not able to work right now and he was the main source of income for his family. Andrea is now caring for Rusty full time. Together this family is strong, but it's also been very tough financially and emotionally.

If you would like to contribute any amount, all funds will go directly to the Mills family to help them pay for Rusty's Cancer treatment, groceries and utilities. Prayers are also requested for the Mills family. With much gratitude and love.
