On December 19, 2023, Derek (Moorhead) received a diagnosis of terminal small-cell lung cancer that had spread to his liver. Medical advice emphasized the urgency of beginning chemotherapy immediately to extend his life beyond a few months, which had initially halted the cancer’s progression. However, a subsequent MRI just six months later revealed that this aggressive form of cancer had created a lesion in his brain, as well as spread to his spine, necessitating exploration of alternative chemotherapy to try to give him more time with his family.

He is caring for his three grandchildren in Moorhead, whom he adopted the previous year, and as a single dad with a terminal illness. He has required extensive support from his family. Simultaneously, Derek’s family has been instrumental in providing care and support throughout his treatments. Due to his condition, he is unable to work, even for short periods, and can no longer participate in activities he once enjoyed, such as motorcycle riding and camping.

When you give online to this fundraiser, your gift goes directly to the family, and Lend A Hand Up provides a 20% financial boost to increase your giving value. The Lend A Hand Up boost applies solely to online gifts processed through this giving site. Should you wish to make a gift by cash or check, your generosity should be directed to the family or their fund at Gate City Bank, as Lend A Hand Up does not process cash or check gifts for families.
