My name is Ron Erbel, I am a career Firefighter / Paramedic. I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer in 2015. I had one surgery in March of 2016 and my second ( and hopefully last ) July 12, 2017. The funds collected will go toward both surgeries since the Insurance Companies have denied my claims stating the procedures are considered experimental . This cancer is considered related to my time at the WORLD TRADE CENTER during 9-11. I have filed an appeal with the Insurance Companies but no resolution to date.
If my appeals are heard and all claims paid , that money will be donated to : Firefighter Cancer Support Network.
Thank you all again for your prayers and support.
