Hey everyone! My name is Coree Bell and the reason I’m fundraising here is for my dear friend, Blake Wilder(pictured left). The nitty gritty of it is that Blake has a cancerous tumor on the left side of his face. It started as squamous cell carcinoma and grew into a tumor that is now the size of a golf ball and has GROWN ROOTS into Blake’s facial bone. The surgery would entail removing the tumor and reconstructing the left side of his face. The surgery takes approximately 10 hours and then 10 days in the hospital for radiation treatment. It’s risky and in depth but it’s the only option.
Here is where the fundraising starts. I text Blake and asked him if he’d had his surgery yet and how he was feeling and he told me he hadn’t had the surgery yet because he doesn’t have insurance and the hospital is “waiting to see how he’s going to pay for it”. WHAT?? This is the only hold up and I just can’t accept that so I’m asking for your HELP!
I’ve never done a fundraiser before but I’m thinking if this can reach 200k people, it would only cost each person $1 to help Blake get the healing he needs and deserves!
A little about Blake: Blake Wilder is one of this world’s national treasures. A sweet sweet man who has never met a stranger and always been so generous with his time and work. Blake lives for cars and has worked on them all his life (I really don’t know anything about cars but I’m sure he’d love to tell you all about them himself! He’s a great storyteller and has lots of wild stories to tell!) Blake and his son Joe (pictured right) are two peas in a pod. Always seen together,never apart!
If you know Blake, you probably know just how awesome he is and have been on the receiving end ofhis kindness and generosity. So how about we extend that back to him in a big way? There’s no one I can think of more deserving! Please consider donating and sharing this with everyone you know. #cancersucks
