Thanks so much for taking the time to read our page, which has been created to help Francis Rapp and his family during their unfortunate time of need.
Francis was diagnosed with Lupus early on in life, however, this medical condition has never stopped him from achieving his dreams and providing for his family. Fran is one of the strongest and most determined men that many of us know. Fran never missed a day of work because he was not feeling well, he has always fought through illness with a heroic effort, many times using humor to smile through the pain. Sadly, Fran's condition has severely worsened due to several varying complications with Lupus. Fran has been in the hospital for the majority of the past 6 months, consequently forcing him out of work and creating many financial challenges for the family.
While Francis battles to overcome these medical obstacles, his biggest supporters are; his son; Francis Junior, daughter; Kaitlyn, and above all, his wife; Lynn. Each and every day they sit by his hospital bedside helping Fran through all of the trying moments. And despite the various procedures and discomforts, Fran would tell you that the hardest part is not being able to root on Francis Jr. during his college baseball games and Kaitlyn during her high school lacrosse games- both teams are in the playoffs!
Most of us know that Fran is too proud to ever ask for help, which is why we are asking for him. I'm sure each of you can recall a specific time when Fran has gone above and beyond for someone else or maybe even for you personally, and never asked for anything in return. Now would be as good of a time as any to pitch in for this special man and his family. The Rapp's have all shown a tremendous amount of strength by staying positive and hopeful throughout each bump in the road. All money raised will go directly to Fran, Lynn, Francis Jr. and Kaitlyn, to cover their mounting medical bills and anything else that they may need during this difficult time.
Thanks in advance for your support!
The extended family of Francis Rapp
