Thief steals chemotherapy medication off the porch of a man with brain cancer

Packages left on porches seem to disappear at an alarming rate lately. When that happens, it can leave us frustrated, angry, and disappointed. A sense of vulnerability comes along with these feelings. While most packages are replaceable, sometimes that is not the case.

James Mills, who has brain cancer, recently found himself a victim of theft. After receiving notice that UPS delivered his chemotherapy meds, Mills was confused when he did not see his package. He double checked, then contacted UPS. The company was adamant; the medication got delivered to him.

Footage from his security camera confirmed this to be the case. The UPS driver was seen leaving the package on the porch. About eight or ten minutes later, another individual grabbed it and ran off.

It would have been bad enough if this were regular meds routinely delivered, but they were not. Mills, a resident of Oklahoma City, is participating in a clinical trial to treat his brain cancer. Medications involved must be given in precise doses and at certain times. James was scheduled to start the new meds the next day. Since this happened on the weekend, he was unable to contact the pharmacy for replacement until Monday.

Mills’ wife, Heather, said getting the medicine was not an easy task, to begin with. The process included doctor visits, getting approval, dealing with the pharmacy, etc. Of all the things to steal, she said, “it had to be his medication.”

Mills filed a police report, but we don’t know whether he received replacement meds in time to remain in the trial. Please pray for him and his family during this challenging time. Believers know God can make a way where there is no way.
