Rudy Richards Funeral Funds

This page has been created for Rudy Richards and his upcoming battle with lung cancer. A few weeks ago, Rudy was having a hard time getting over pneumonia, and underwent a series of expensive and invasive tests. Unfortunately the biopsy confirmed what everyone feared: lung cancer. As of right now, the stage is unknown but Rudy is still undergoing different scans to check other parts of his body for cancer. On Friday, July 25th, 2014, Rudy underwent a procedure to have a port installed in his chest, which will be utilized for delivery of chemotherapy. Rudy's first chemo treatment starts Monday, July 28th, 2014, and he will undergo 6 treatments over the next 18 weeks. 

Rudy is is the proud father to twin boys, Aaron and Andrew, and is also the sole caretaker of his elderly mother, Lauretta.  Rudy has worked in the alarm industry for the last 30 years, and has spent the last 14 years at Hawk Security, making them part of his extended family. 

Through his job, Rudy has health insurance but has to meet a $5,000 deductible before it kicked in and covered anything. Rudy has used the majority of his savings to pay for the necessary tests but the doctor bills, prescriptions, medical bills and household bills are already starting to accumulate. While he has a lot of people in his corner rooting for him, Rudy needs our help to keep him afloat during this rough time. Rudy is the type of man to give a stranger in need the shirt off his back so it's time that his extended family and friends rally around and support him during his cancer battle!
