Ray's Medical Bills

In 2011 my dad, Ray, was diagnosed with Small Cell lung cancer. He underwent surgery and the top lobe of his right lung was removed. He went through three months of chemo treatments and went into remission. Everything was going well. Ray was back to his normal, goofy self. We got to celebrate his 50th birthday with a great costume party, had him in great shape for the holiday's and life was finally getting back to normal.

In late November, 2013, Ray suffered a seizure caused by metastasized brain cancer. The mass was removed in November, but, has since come back. Our holiday's were spent in the hospital and our lives became work, hospital, home. He has been undergoing radioation therapy and is on medication. My mom, Diane, my best friend, is supporting the two of them now on only her income. To help ease her worry and to show support,  I decided to open this fund in the hope that it will help defray costs due to his battle with cancer.

Some of you may know Ray, Diane, or I, you may be a family member, a friend or a coworker of theirs ....whatever the connection is, to make this event successful, I ask you to reach out and help my family in our time of need. Any donation, big or small, will help my family greatly. 

Thank you for taking the time to read this, I hope you consider being a part of this act of kindness.
