Please Support the Lentz Family, while Rance gets the surgery & treatment he desperately needs!!!
Rance and Angela Lentz live in Delta Jct, Alaska they are the parents of Gage (12 yrs old), Dade (9 yrs old), and their youngest Rance AKA “Rowdy” (5 yrs old). Rance has grown up in Delta Jct Alaska, where his father Mike, and mother Judy owned and operated the Clearwater Lodge.
Rance was diagnosed with Ulcerative colitis almost 17 yrs ago. Rance also has Crohn’s Disease, which he watched his mother suffer with while he was growing up. Rance has been living with these two diseases for such a long time, both of them are very very painful when there are “flare-ups”. “Flare-Ups” can be caused by a variety of different things like getting the flu, a sickness, sinus infection, kidney infection, stress, etc. etc. The biggest factor the influx of “Flare-Ups” for Rance has been Stress! Rances body simply doesnt react well to stress. He just gets sicker and sicker.
Rance has been faced with unimaginable stress and grief in the last 2 years. Rance lost both of his parents unexpectedly in less than a year. His mother, Judy Shindelbower/ Lentz, passed away of cancer in October 2011, after Rance and his wife, Angela had flown to South Dakota to honor his mom’s wishes of coming home, so she could spend her last days with her family, she passed away less than a month after she was diagnosed. Then in May of 2012, Rance got the phone call that his father, Mike Lentz had passed away from a heart attack at his home without warning. The stress and grief of loosing his parents affected his health in torturous ways, and since then the “flare ups” have rarely gone away.
