Dave Ellis's Chemotherapy Fund

$12,908 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 137 people in 7 months
Created October 8, 2018
Hello Friends,
Dave Ellis is one of the most positive, loving, and giving people I have ever met, always willing to share good times, and make people happy. He has been a life long skateboarder, golfer, artist, and is most passionate about music. He has played in many bands, and is currently with his friends in Gainesville; Tate Clair, Ben Andrews, and Justin Reed, in the band Loose Bearings. Dave has stood by me and many others, building some of the most memorable contest ramps in skateboarding history. To name a few, Bob Burnquist’s backyard ramp, Bob’s loop, King of Skate, Matt Hoffmans’s big air ramp (and his private training facilities), Skatelab, Eastern Skate Supply, and many, many others. Dave worked with Team Pain, building ESPN’s X games ramps for 7 years, and in all reality, you very well may have skated something he has had a hand in building, even if you don’t know him. Now, I’m asking for us to all kick in and help him out with living and medical expenses for the next few months to come. Also, we are asking for your positive vibes, prayers, and support of any kind. Our friend Dave Ellis will be going through some very rough times in the coming months, it will not be easy. Dave was recently diagnosed with Leukemia, and has begun an extensive regiment of chemotherapy at Shands, In Gainesville, Fl. He will be in a germ-free environment while he receives this treatment, and very likely will need bone marrow transplants as well.

Our goal here, is to raise 20K, in an effort to help with medical, and living expenses, as he will not be able to work for quite some time, while fighting this disease. Your monetary donations, kind words, and any form of positivity during this struggle is much needed, and appreciated.

You can send messages to his Roommate Tate Clair at deenreeb65@gmail.com. Tate is visiting him Daily and will make sure he gets them.
