The Beard Family Fund

$15,101 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 206 people in 68 months
Help the Beard family make some lasting memories. Ryan is the father of a one year old son, and has a wife of four years. He's 35 years old. In September he was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer, and the doctors are telling him he only has 2-3 years to go. When something like this happens the only thing you want to do is be around family and loved ones, and that's where they need your help. The Beards are planning a family trip to the Outer Banks in April. The money raised here will help fund their trip, so they can forget about reality for a moment and just enjoy the people around them.

Any money raised that goes beyond the cost of this trip will go into a fund to pay for medical bills, Ben's college, and any other bucket list stuff.

Thank You for Everything

Mr. Rogers had a saying "When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, "Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping."

This is my scary thing and I'm looking at all of you.

We hit our goal in three days. That's astonishing.

If you would like to still give the site is still live and donations will go through even though the goal has been met. Everything now is going towards medical bills and Ben's college.

Thank you for every kind thought, prayer and donation a million times over.

Go get your stuff checked.

My oncologist told me that if I hadn't gotten checked I would have been gone in a few months. Luckily I have a persuasive family doctor and I had a colonoscopy. Because of that I have 2-3 years to live.

If you have stuff that needs to be checked go do it.
