Hello, my name is Rich, and I have a very close friend/ Brother is probably a better word, that is in a fight for his life against cancer of the esophagus, and stomach. If I was a millionaire I would not be reaching out for help, he would have every dime he ever needed to continue to fight this dreaded disease. Being this is not the case I'm reaching out in this way to try and help take some of the financial worries off his mind so he can not stress over the bills as much, and more focus on trying to beat this.
Dave is a Husband, Father, New Grandfther, and a very good friend to many people. If you have ever purchased/fished with a St Croix fishing rod in Pa., NJ, NY, or Ohio and even beyond you know Dave in some fashion being he has been the regional Sales manager for this area for around 16 years. He has done much to promote fishing to all and has been a huge part of the fishing community all of his life and has touched many hearts all across the country while teaching people to appreciate and love the outdoors.
Dave is in his mid fifties and has been fighting this fight via chemotherapy and radiation treatments for about a year now, and the bills are piling up on this family and creating tremendous stress to all parties involved. Their family home has gone on the market to be sold among other major cut backs to try and keep their heads above water financialy. I'm looking to do whatever I can to try and help them through this very tough time. Any donation no matter how big or small would be appreciated beyond words.
