The Beard Family Fund

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
