About Gerald Pawloski
Praying For Gerald Pawloski
On Monday, August 22nd, we were told my daddy, Jerry Pawloski, was positive for prostate cancer. We were not satisfied with the doctor he had been seeing. So, my mom, Sharon, immediately contacted the, Cancer treatment center of America, in Chicago. Within a week my parents were there and packed with a full schedule. From testing to doctors’ appointments, everyone treated them like I think they deserve to be treated, my #1. Two weeks after the first diagnosis we have the final diagnosis. Several tumors have been found outside the prostate and my dad is stage 3. The good news… nothing has spread to the bone.
With several testing done, they have decided that Calypso radiation is the best option for the first treatment. They have surgically inserted sensor devices that allow for the radiation to only radiate where they want it and very localized. This treatment will be 5 days a week for a minimum of 8 weeks in Chicago. This will be the start of my dad being off work indefinitly, and with no income coming in. The rest is up in the air as in what will be next, chemo or surgery.
This is one of the hardest things to go through and to ask help for. My dad is, in so many ways, a wonderful husband, an amazing father, the kindest Dzia Dzia, a hard worker, and a good role model with an incredible faith in Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Savior. My mom is also amazing but also suffers from a medical condition called dys-autonomia and P.O.T.S. She is on social secutity disability and unable to work. With her condition she is limited on carrying for my dad by not being able to drive. On a bad day for her, she is in a lot of pain typically undescribable migraine which can cause her to suffer from stroke or seizures. Everyday we know God is with us, even during this struggle and will get us through it.
I have a heavy heart and that's why I'm asking for your help. Whether it is a donations or even keeping us in prayer, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. With my dad taking time off work and the unknown of when he can go back, I'm asking for your help to help them make ends meet while this time is extremely hard for them.
Please look deep in your hearts to help my loving dad and I assure you, we will pay it forward.
