A LITE-FM Christmas Wish for Kerry
LITE-FM's Christmas Wish is back, thanks to our friends at Pioneer Federal Credit Union.
When Serena sent us an absolutely beautiful letter about her dad Kerry, we knew this was the type of man who really deserved to know that people are thinking about him this Christmas. About three years ago, his wife was diagnosed with ALS. Shortly after, Kerry found out that he was battling prostate cancer.
As he was going through cancer treatment, he was still his wife's primary caretaker and did absolutely everything he could to make his wife comfortable during the final years of her life. She passed away from complications to due ALS earlier this year and it's his first Christmas without her. Serena said that watching the grace he handled his wife's illness with while fighting his own battle was an absolutely beautiful act of unconditional love.
Heading into the holiday season, Kerry is still going through radiation treatments as his cancer has spread to his spine. He's trying to be optimistic and confident that he can beat cancer and doesn't ask his family for anything because he doesn't want to feel like a burden to them.
Serena wanted to let him know how much the family loves and supports him and that he doesn't have to shoulder the burden that 2020 has given him alone so we loaded up Marco and Jaci into the Treasure Valley Subaru Delivery Sleigh to surprise him after he got home from a fishing trip!
