Burton's Fight With Cancer

Melissa Sturgill  OLYMPIA, WA
We found out a week ago with a trip to the ER (for what we thought was the stomach flu) that my boyfriend, Burton Oliver, has stage 3 testicular cancer. He has had to undergo 2 surgeries and he will start approximately 3 months of chemotherapy on Monday. Thankfully, Burton has insurance but even with that, the cost out of pocket is overwhelming--to say the least. He has to come up with enough to pay for his hospital stay, the surgeries, the chemo, all while being out of work while he recovers. Burton is a very loving, caring boyfriend and an awesome father to two wonderful kids and it is my hope to raise some funds for him so he just has to focus on getting better. If you're not able to donate, please share our page and keep us in your thoughts and prayers!! Thank you everyone ~Melissa Sturgill

We were able to raise a big chunk of money at our fundraiser last weekend & on the 24th the Westside Oly Buffalo Wild Wings is donating 10% of their profits so make sure you spread the word & get in there!! Just trying to jeep the site alive with all the medical bills pouring in. If you could all continue to share this on your pages, that would be great!!

I'm just so blown away with all the donations. It was my original thought to hopefully cover medical costs. Burton was thinking he could work on the weeks where chemo wasn't as intense. I would love to raise enough funds so he doesn't have to worry so much about work, in case he just physically can't, and you all are helping to making this possible!!

It is such a huge relief to see the $ that has been raised so far, thank you everyone!! If there are any business owners, or anyone who's work wouldn't mind hanging up a flyer or 2, please let me know. I just ordered a bunch and I have support bracelets on the way that I'm going to try and sell at $5 each :)
