The Bill Smith Family Fundraiser

Over the Christmas Holiday's a dear friend of ours was diagnosed with cancer.

Bill Smith is just like all of us; he goes to work every day, works hard for his family, coaches his son's baseball teams and is an asset to his community of  Wakefield, MA,

Bill is a great dad to his sons, Matthew and  Ryan, and daughter Katlyn and a loving husband to his wife Kim.

Bill is now on a feeding tube and getting ready to start daily radiation treatments and chemo.

We all pray and ask for your prayers for success in his treatment.  It will be though an incrediby difficult journey but Bill is tough and his family is strong.

Bill will not be able to work during his treatment, whiich is why this fundraiser has been established.  Please help in any way you can this family in thier time of need.

Friendship, when you are blessed to have it is something that lives in your heart always no matter how often you see or talk to one another.

I am blessed to have had a group of friends that I have had since I was a kid. Billy is one of them.  We don't get to see each other as often as we would like ... damn -- we all need to get together soon.

We all established a bond nearly 30 years ago.  Time and miles will NEVER break that bond.

When one of us is in need, we want to help.  We will always have each others backs.

Anything at all that you can do would really help Bill and his family while he fights the fight.

God Bless,

The Purity Gang
