Adenocarcinoma of Duodenum
Ronnie Carroll's Bio
Ronnie Carroll, 48 years old was diagnosed with Adenocarcinoma of the Duodenum on September 12, 2014. Ronnie is a Correctional Officer with the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office, where he has worked for the past 25 years. On 10/3/14, Ronnie underwent two surgeries at Medstar Georgetown University Hospital one to remove the cancer in duodenum and one to remove unusually large polyps located in his colon (his family has a history of colon cancer). Fortunately for Ronnie the polyps in his colon were benign.
Ronnie lives in Slainsville, WV with his fiancée and is the main financial provider for their household. Once Ronnie is released from the hospital he will have to undergo extensive chemotherapy and will have to travel between DC, Frederick and his home in order to receive his treatment. Ronnie is expected to be off work for at least six months possibly longer.
Ronnie knows first-hand the financial burden cancer can cause a family as he himself assisted his son financially several years ago while he courageously fought but unfortunately succumbed to a form of leukemia. Ronnie and his family are very grateful for all the love, support, good thoughts and most of all prayers they have received from friends, family, and co-workers.
Ronnie is looking forward to returning to his job and the things he loves to do as soon as possible – he is not one to sit back and do nothing. Any fundraising efforts will assist Ronnie and his family with traveling to and from cancer treatments and medical care as well as support his efforts to provide for his family.
Thank you for your support.
