Pat and Janelle's FIGHT Fund.....

UPDATE - 1/29/18.....

Pat Has Left us from this Earth but will forever be in our Soul......We Shall Meet again..And when we do we will all go sailing......

His Fight is over and he fought courageously.... Pat Passed away Monday Jan 29th with his family by his side...


As a family we are faced with a real test of faith and Courage... In late June Pat Ruhland noticed a lump on the side of his neck. After having a PET scan and several biopsies of the lymph nodes, we learned the worst. Cancer.

Thru medical attention locally and including a 2nd opinion at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota, we learned the cancer is spread throughout his chest, abdomen, and a lung. Needless to say its devasted Pat and Janelle and the rest of the family.

Its with the above news that we humbly ask for Prayers and your Financial Help if possible as we begin the battle for Pats Life. Pat and Janelle have a urgent need to help raise enough funds so they dont have the added financial stress of Pat not able to work.  In addition Janelle will need to be home many days caring for Pat and the boys. She will also be taking needed time away from work.  This campaign will help ease the un-paid days from their jobs filling in the gaps financially.

Needless to say we THANK YOU for any help you can offer over the upcoming days, weeks, and months. We also ask if you could kindly help spread the word and SHARE this campiagn so others who have been touched in their lives by the kindness of Pat and Janelle can get involved.

In addition in the upcoming Days We will have more info about a Dinner Benefit you could get involved with and join us for on Saturday Nov 11th in Bay City, MI. This in combination of this Go Fund Me campaign and will certianly help ease the burden for the Ruhland Family. PLEASE SAVE THE DATE AND WATCH FOR MORE INFO ON THIS BENEFIT.

Thank you for ANY consideration and for your Prayers in helping us keep the faith!

With Love,
Pat, Janelle and our whole Ruhland/Armbruster Family.
