Bob and his dog, Bob

When a person has cancer most people’s thoughts go towards the physical and emotional hardships the person and their loved ones will have to endure.  What is an afterthought is the financial hardships.  When a child is diagnosed with cancer the treatment is started quickly, often very intense, and fluctuates as to how much time is spent in the hospital or the clinic.  At least one parent/guardian needs to be with that child at all times. It is not uncommon to hear of a parent losing their job due to missed days. If that parent is the sole breadwinner, or insurance carrier, the financial strain is devastating.   If the family has enough support a fundraiser in their hometown can be a huge help with keeping them on their feet, or even in their home.  One such family recently had a fundraiser where another guest of honor happened to attend.  Meet Bob and his dog, Bob.
