Jim Naugler, Go Fund Me
Jim Naugler, Golf Course Superintendent at The Links of Crystal Lake, was diagnosed with Stage IV Advanced Metastatic Prostate Cancer last October. He received chemotherapy and hormone therapy along with shots and medications which put his cancer into remission for a time; however, the cancer has come back and now he will have to go through more rounds of treatments.
The Nauglers have health insurance but not all treatment expenses are covered. The Wee One Foundation generously gifted $10,000 to the Nauglers, all of which went toward the out-of-pocket charges; however, the family is facing more expenses especially since they are now looking into additional cancer facilities in order to give Jim the best treatment possible - perhaps even out-of-state hospitals. In the meantime they are doing their best just to get by financially. Your generosity would be greatly appreciated by the Nauglers and the people who know and love Jim.
8/19 Update - Hello, friends and family! Dr. Danish, Jim's physician from the Genesys-Hurley Cancer Center (who has taken wonderful care of him) thinks that Jim's back pain may be from the bone shot he received a couple of weeks ago. But there is concern about his rising PSA numbers and the fact that the chemo didn't work, so the doctor ordered a full body bone scan and a cat scan. We also told him that we would like a second opinion, so Dr. Danish recommended MD Anderson in Houston, Texas which is one of the best cancer centers in the country. This means we'll be packing our bags soon and heading off to Texas! We would like to thank our friends and relatives profusely for your generosity; you are the ones who are making this life-saving care for Jim possible. Words cannot begin to express how much we love & appreciate you all. We'd also like to give a shout-out to Jim's urologist, Dr. Luea, and the doctors at Fenton Medical Center who have also taken such great care of him. Thank you all for everything!
