Cancer survivor Roland Vidaurri and his wife Patsy were physically evicted from their house today on Canavan Avenue on the city's southside.
A house payment was not made in nearly four years.
Roland says he was occupied with trying to survive the aggressive tumors that caused his back to collapse and his femur to break.
He was diagnosed with a bone marrow cancer on June 8th of last year, however he noticed severe pain in his back nearly four years ago. The back spasms caused him to stay in bed two to three weeks at a time.
He says that's when his family got behind in payments. Vidaurri ran a roofing business called Cowboy's Remodeling and Sheet Medal for more than a decade. However, the back pain made it difficult to work.
His wife, Patsy, has been trying to keep up with the bills along with his medical care.
A representative from Chase Bank says they have sent modification letters to the family in an effort to work with them on their house payments.
A judge denied their request to delay today's eviction.

Bush hosts bike ride for military combat veterans
May 24, 2013 08:11 GMT
CRAWFORD, Texas (AP) -- Former President George W. Bush is hosting a 100-kilometer mountain bike ride at his Central Texas ranch for military members wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The second day of the ride begins Friday. This is the third year for Bush to host the Warrior 100K. Last year, the ride was held at Palo Duro Canyon State Park, with the previous year's ride in the Big Bend region of West Texas.
Fifteen wounded veterans of combat in Iraq and Afghanistan are participating in the ride, which is part of the George W. Bush Institute's Military Service Initiative. The institute is part of the George W. Bush Presidential Center at Southern Methodist University in Dallas.
