Daniel Thomas Ricker

This fund is for funeral and burial expenses for Daniel Thomas Ricker.  He lost his ability to be a chef a few years ago when he suffered a compression fracture in three of his vertibrae. He had to endure five surgeries since then, including having both hips replaced.  About a year later he was diagnosed with a bone disease that was very painful, meaning he needed more care.  on friday March 2nd, 2018, a piece of unmetabolised pill was expelled from his kidney and became loged in one of the arteries of his heart, which stopped it.  He was resusitated and placed on life support for 5 days but no brain activity returned.  He passed on March 7th, 2018.   Dan and his wife  had drained their savings to cover all of the medical expenses, and the gap in income from when he lost ability to work.  Being a full time college student with two part-time, low-wage jobs, I don't have a way to help her when she needs it most.  So this is my humble plea for help.  All donations will be recieved by her so that she can honor her husbands memory.  My deepest thanks go out to all who can and will help me bring a positive end to a very tragic situation.
