Rally for Rich

Rich was first diagnosed with a brain tumor in December of 2010 at the age of 37. Thus began his journey with cancer. His first brain surgery was on Dec. 29, 2010. Another surgery was performed at Mayo clinic on February 28, 2011. Following that last surgery he took chemo treatment, and the brain tumor went into remission.
     Rich believed he had the cancer beaten and lived life to the fullest for about 6 years, when a MRI checkup on Aug. 26, 2016 showed a new tumor growing in a new site. Once again he started treatment. Due to the tumor location surgery was not an option this time. Then in the spring of 2017 the site of the old tumor began to grow again.
     Rich has a wife and 4 children living at home. Due to the cancer he has suffered paralysis on his left side and has not been able to work since last Memorial Day. Rich has not yet been able to qualify for disability or government aid. Due to his paralysis his wife and family can no longer provide all his care and help has been hired. Their financial responsibility, above and beyond what is covered by insurance, is significant.
     Any monetary help that you can provide is greatly needed and much appreciated! Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.
