Family, friends helping family

When Steve Weber of rural Silver Lake went to a doctor because of a swollen knee in January 2016, he had no idea that it would be the trigger for the discovery of stage four cancer.
Weber said fluid around his knee was drained, and he was put on steroids for continuing treatment.
“After taking the steroid pills for two or three days, I started getting severe stomach cramps,” said Weber. He went to the emergency room, and ended up in the hospital.
“Apparently, the steroids activated ulcers that I didn’t even know I had,” said Weber.
