Stephen was diagnosed with Stage 4 Colon Cancer on February 22, 2013. He had a very long, difficult fight. He would go to work on a construction site with his chemo infusing, never giving up he tried everything he could tolerate even some he couldn't chemo, liver ablations, radiation, immunotherapy. In fact insisted on driving himself to Most of these treatments!!! 5 Chest tubes in one month last winter, he pushed through. His goal this last spring was to work another season to keep his health insurance, I honestly don't know how he did it some days but he did. My Dad would stop in a storm to change someone's tire, give you anything he had, he was stubborn and difficult at times but always loving and just a pretty Amazing Person
