Eric Pruett and Family

Eric Pruett, where to begin? Eric, a real American hero, a great man, a natural born leader, our favorite jokester, a loving husband and father to three. This amazing man was just given the grave news that he has stage IIII melanoma cancer. Something that he has fought in the past, 18 short months ago and beat. His melanoma sadly has returned to his neck, back, hips, arm, liver, and bones. This has caused him physical pain and he is in the process of radiation treatments. The doctor did not give Eric a time limit of life expectancy but did tell him to not give up hope. He and his family are left hoping for the best but preparing for the worst. Eric has spent his life serving others constantly. He has served in the Idaho Army National Guard for 21 years. He spent 18 months in Kirkuk Iraq on his first tour in 2005 and 5 years later he returned for another 12 months in 2010 in Baghdad Iraq, away from his family serving our great country. He is a strong Christian who has served in his church callings diligently and of course he has served his family and friends. Eric and his wife Brenna were wed in May of 2004 and they have three children together, Little Eric (14), Elise (10) and Ethan (8). If you know Eric then you know how much everyone loves being around him. He takes care of everyone. He makes you feel safe. He always does the right thing every time. He is generous, and will always leave you smiling. Eric requesed that his wife and kids come up with a bucket list of things they would like to do with him.  Eric finally wants to take his wife on a honeymoon, something they weren’t able to do because he was shipped off to Iraq a month after they were wed. Eric’s children want to go to Legoland or Disneyland with their dad. Since they are a superhero loving family Eric has dreamed of going to Comic Con San Diego. They want this time together to be special and memorable! Please donate what you can to this amazing family, let's show them some love! No better family deserves joy and happiness at this time more than they do. Anything helps! They will also be accumulating numerous medical bills. Please find it in your heart to give what you can.  They appreciate all you give tremendiously.
