“Never believe that a few caring people can’t change the world. For, indeed, that’s all who ever have.” — Margaret Mead UPDATE 9/15/15: Doug has returned from the hospital with AMAZING news! He has beaten the odds and is among the blessed 4% of people who can claim complete remission of Multiple Myeloma!! He is still unable to work enough to hold any type of job and still has mounds of medical bills. Please continue to uplift Doug and his family with prayer and financial contributions.
Doug Poffenberger is a longtime member of the Tom Harris Auctions team and considered a close, personal friend to us all. He currently cannot work because of an awful diagnosis of Multiple Myeloma. We are asking for your help and support for him and his family as they fight this fight. Please click here to be directed to his GoFundMe account. He has been in remission since 9-18-2014, but is still unable to work. Here is his story: Doug was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma in October of 2013. Since that diagnosis, he has fought a long, tough battle through two stem cell transplants, overcoming a variety of complications. Thankfully, at this time, we are happy to report that Doug is cancer free, but there is currently no cure for Multiple Myeloma and he will be dealing with a potential reoccurrence for the rest of his life. Due to the disabling effects of his treatment, Doug has been unable to work for the last year and a half and doctors will not say when, if ever, he might be able to work again, given his weakened immune system. But the bills don’t stop and they continue to pile up. He has been hospitalized twice in the last 6 months due to complications, including pneumonia. One hospital bill alone is $5,000 over what insurance will pay. That, in addition to everyday living expenses, have put a huge financial burden on Doug and his family. Doug remains positive and most days has a smile on his face, but the family could really use your support. Any monetary contribution you can make, be it $5 or $500, will be greatly appreciated. If you can’t contribute financially at this time, please keep Doug in your prayers or send him a note of support. Thank you!
