Dave Rue is a well known West Michigan Hockey Official, he is most known for mentoring young hockey players and referees. Dave was a very hard working Self-Employed Contractor. Dave is battling lung cancer, he is undergoing chemotherapy treatments and is struggling with the effects from chemotherapy. He continues to stay positive to beat cancer. While going thru these life changing events, Dave was forced to give up his construction business. While not being able to work and provide a living his medical expenses continue pouring in.

This campaign has been started with the goal of offsetting some of Dave's ever-increasing medical bills.

I've started this Go Fund Me account in hopes of paying back Dave for all the time he has given to this communitee through his love for hockey.

In addition to this go fund me, I also have 9 Authentic Special Grand Rapids Griffins jerseys for auction on Ebay. Jerseys are autographed by players like Ouellet, Marchenko, Larkin, Czarnowczan, Porter, Nosek, Zengerle, Sproul & Evans. Search Authentic Autographed.

Please help in raising as much as possible for Dave. My goal is to raise 30-40K.

To All:

I am sending the update and approval for Kevin to withdraw funds for Dave, the account is in Dave Rue's name and I have been in constant contact with Dave's family that the funds are guaranteed to go to help Dave with his medical bills.

Thank you everyone for supporting Dave.

Currently we have raised a total of $5,999 in gofundme, checks received and jersey auctions. We've realized that placing the jersey's on ebay over the holidays was a mistake, so I am relisting them on ebay. Remember 100% of jersey sales goes directly to Dave. So please forward all links to your family, co-workers & friends.
On ebay do an advanced search, by seller, wmupau6 and you'll see the remaining 8 jersey's
PLEASE SEND THIS TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW TO HELP DAVE!!!!!
