In early March, Eric caught a cold and coughed so hard he went to the hospital. He was initially diagnosed with COPD and put on an inhaler.  Further testing revealed a mass one one lung that had spread to the other.

The new diagnosis was non-small cell squamous lung cancer . A week later, doctors told Eric it was at stage 4 , with cancer also found in his brain, legs and hips.

Friends and family are pulling together to help support Eric through his treatments, and the GoFundMe page will raise money to help pay the mounting expenses.

Donations can also be dropped off or mailed to his employer, Currier Plumbing in Milton.
