Ricks Alternative Medical Treatment

$11,692 of $15,000 goal

Raised by 134 people in 2 months


Hello we are Carmen and Glori,

We are reaching out to you because we have Rick/Ricky (Jose Ricardo Rodriguez) as a mutual friend/family member or because you may know or have known someone in a similar situation.

For those of you who have had the honor of  meeting Ricky, know that he is an amazing selfless human being.  Ricky has been hospitalized for the last month and a half for health related issues.  Just last week,  Ricky was diagnosed with stage 4 stomach cancer.   

 Ricky will probably not be happy about us starting this gofundme account, but he has always given so much to others and we are sure many of his friends and family would love the opportunity help in  any way they can.  Ricky has touched the lives of so many people with his kind heart, through his beautiful unique art, upbeat music, and his genuine good nature.  He also always puts everyone before himself and if you know Ricky, then you know he is always the life of the party and one of the most humble individuals.  

The reason for this gofundme account is to raise funds for alternative treatment for his cancer and for further acquired expenses after his hospital release.   Please keep Ricky in your prayers and if you are able to help with a donation that would be greatly appreciated.  God bless you and thank you in advance!!! 

We thank you and know that his family is grateful for your generosity,
Rosa Ruiz (MOM), Tany, Kerene. 

Please know that despite the diagnosis, in true Ricky fashion, he is in great spirits and ready to fight so let's join him. 


Please feel free to share with family and Friends.  

This is a great place to show Ricky your love and support, share your favorite pictures.

Hola, somos Carmen y Glori:

Nos comunicamos con usted porque tenemos a Rick / Ricky como amigo / familiar mutuo o porque quizás conozca o haya conocido a alguien en una situación similar.

Para aquellos de ustedes que han tenido el honor de conocer a Ricky, saben que él es un increíble ser humano. Ricky ha sido hospitalizado durante el último mes y medio por problemas relacionados con la salud. La semana pasada, a Ricky le diagnosticaron cáncer de estómago en etapa 4.

Ricky probablemente no estará  feliz de saber que hemos abierto esta cuenta de gofundme, pero siempre ha dado tanto a los demás y estamos seguros de que a muchos de sus amigos y familiares les encantará la oportunidad de ayudar de cualquier manera que puedan. Ricky ha tocado la vida de tantas personas con su corazón amable, a través de su hermoso arte único, su música alegre y su genuina y buena naturaleza. También siempre pone a todos frente a sí mismo y si conoces a Ricky, entonces sabes que siempre es la vida de la fiesta y una de las personas más humildes.

El motivo de esta cuenta de gofundme es para recaudar fondos para un tratamiento alternativo para su cáncer y para otros gastos adquiridos después de su liberación en el hospital. Por favor, tenga a Ricky en sus oraciones y si puede ayudar con una donación que sería muy apreciada. Dios te bendiga y gracias de antemano!

Les damos las gracias y su familia les da las gracias por su generosidad. 
Rosa Ruiz (Mamá), Tany, Kerene. 

Por favor, sepan que a pesar del diagnóstico, a la manera de Ricky, él está de buen ánimo y listo para luchar, así que hay que luchar con él.

Por favor, siéntase libre de compartir con familiares y amigos.

Este es un gran lugar para mostrarle a Ricky su amor y apoyo, compartir sus imágenes favoritas.

As many of you have probably already heard, our beloved Rick/Ricky has moved on from this life and is now resting in paradise. While on this earth, Ricky lived his life to the fullest and he was a true warrior up to the very end. This morning, 11-21-18, he passed in the comfort of his home. His family would like to thank all of you who have donated to his alternative care fund and for the many prayers.

Thanks to all of you for your generosity, the family will now be able to use the remaining funds to make arrangements for Ricky's Celebration of Life. As many of you who know Rick, he wouldn't have it any other way. His soul was in awe by all the love and support he received.

If it's in your heart to continue helping Ricky's family/parents during this grieving period, feel free to continue donating to his fund which is no longer for alternative care but to help with expenses left after his passing. Thank you for all the love, support, prayers and kind words. Your kind words, continued support, and prayers are all so meaningful and very much appreciated by Ricky's Family.

Como muchos de ustedes probablemente ya han escuchado, nuestro querido Rick / Ricky ha pasado de esta vida y ahora está descansando en el paraíso. Mientras estuvo en esta tierra, Ricky vivió su vida a lo máximo y fue un verdadero guerrero hasta el final. Esta mañana, 11-21-18, falleció en la comodidad de su hogar. Su familia quisiera agradecer a todos los que donaron a su fondo de cuidado alternativo y por las muchas oraciones.

Gracias a todos por su generosidad, la familia ahora podrá usar los fondos restantes para hacer los arreglos para la Celebración de la Vida de Ricky. Como muchos de ustedes que conocen a Rick, él no lo haría de otra manera. Su alma estaba asombrada por todo el amor y apoyo que recibió.

Si está en su corazón continuar ayudando a la familia / padres de Ricky durante este período de dolor, siéntase libre de seguir donando a su fondo, que ya no es para atención alternativa, sino para ayudar con los gastos que quedan después de su fallecimiento. Gracias por todo el amor, apoyo, oraciones y amables palabras. Sus amables palabras, su apoyo continuo y sus oraciones son muy significativas y muy apreciadas por la Familia de Ricky.

For those of you who do not have facebook, or social Media, I'd like to give you an update on Rick/Ricky. As you can see here in this picture he continues to smile and be the life of the party. Many have shared their feelings towards him,
"he's an amazing human being,"
"he has a heart of gold",
"he'd give you the shirt off his back"
"he thinks of other's before himself"
the list goes on.....and that is why he is so loved. He will continue having his doctor's visits he continues to have a positive out look on things.

He, his Family, Friends....and all loved ones can't thank you enough.

Please keep sending the positive vibes, prayers, soft hugs his way....

Thank you for your support.

For those who don't know me, my name is Carmen Williams. I've known Ricky for over 30 years. Since Jr. High, he's always been the same Ricky. The fun loving person he is....too bad I don't have pictures of when he was 13 but if I come across one believe me I will definitely post it.

Ricky is definitely a warrior, even through this storm he's going through he continues to be concerned about other's well being. It is just in his nature to care about others. Please continue praying for him and send him "soft hugs."

On Behalf of the Rodriguez/Ruiz family, Glori and I would like to thank EVERY single one of you for your generosity. He is more than half way to reaching his goal. It couldn't have been done with out every donation you have contributed.

We aren't surprised at the amount of support he has received because I imagine, he has an amazing family and group of friends that obviously are a reflection of him.

I'd like to let you all know that upon Ricky's request, the funds will be going to my account and I will personally be delivering the funds to Ricky to use for his treatment. I have daily contact with him and his family. I will continue updating here often.

I too thank you all for your support, prayers and sharing. Please continue sharing as we continue working towards his goal.


God Bless you all.

Carmen Williams

Para los que no me conocen, mi nombre es Carmen Williams. Conozco a Ricky desde hace más de 30 años. Desde Jr. High, siempre ha sido el mismo Ricky. La persona amante de la diversión es ... desgraciadamente, no tengo fotos de él cuando tenía 13 años, pero si me encuentro con una, créanme que definitivamente lo publicaré.

Ricky es definitivamente un guerrero, incluso a través de esta tormenta que está atravesando, le preocupa el bienestar de los demás. Es solo en su naturaleza preocuparse por los demás. Por favor, continúen orando por él y envíele "abrazos suaves".
En nombre de la familia Rodríguez / Ruiz, Glori y yo queremos agradecer a CADA uno de ustedes por su generosidad. Casi estamos en camino de alcanzar su meta. No se podría haber hecho sin cada una de sus donaciones.

No nos sorprende la cantidad de apoyo que ha recibido porque me imagino que tiene una familia increíble y un grupo de amigos que, obviamente, son un reflejo de él.
Me gustaría que todos sepan que a petición de Ricky, manejaré sus fondos y administraré su cuenta Go Fund Me. Yo personalmente entregaré los fondos a Ricky. Tengo contacto diario con él y su familia.
Yo también les agradezco a todos por su apoyo, oraciones y por compartir. Por favor continúen compartiendo mientras continuamos trabajando hacia su objetivo.

Dios los bendiga a todos.
Carmen Williams
