Sooners Helping Rickey Dixon

$13,928 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 128 people in 42 months
Rickey Dixon was a defensive player for the 1985 Oklahoma Sooners football team. In 1987 he was an All-American and Oklahoma's first recipient of the Jim Thorpe award. 

Ricky has been stricken with ALS, most commonly referred to as Lou Gehrig's disease, for which there is no cure at this time.  ALS is characterized by stiff muscles, muscle twitching, and gradually worsening weakness due to muscle wasting. This results in difficulty speaking, swallowing, and eventually breathing.

Sooners Helping Sooners is raising money for Rickey and his family as they work through a difficult time. In addition to donations, please visit Icons of OKC on Facebook for updates on events which will benefit Rickey.

I cannot let another day go by without stopping to thank everyone for your support for Rickey and my family! We are truly humbled and were literally brought to tears by all the warm thoughts, prayers and support we have received this weekend. Rickey wanted to feel the "Sooner Magic" this weekend but what he received was so much more! It was the Sooner and others Love! It has been the best medicine that he could ever receive and I have not seen him smile this BIG in a very long time! There is Nothing that we can ever do to repay each of you for what u have done for us but please know that we so deeply appreciate each of u, we don't take any of you are the Blessings bestowed upon us lightly! Again thank you! Praying Love, Peace and Favor - Rickey, Lorraine and Family! #ALSaintgotnothingonus!

Hello Rickey and Lorraine! I saw Rickey's Story on ESPN. It touched my heart. Being fully disabled I understand the battles Rickey is going through. Praying for you Rickey. Thanks for bringing joy and happiness into my life I used to watch you play ball on tv. It is time to find a cure for all brain diseases like ALS Cerebral Palsy, MS and others. Let's all stand up and help each other. Sincerely Stephen Miller
