Please help Bill Switzer’s family

No one ever dreams of losing their spouse and having the main source of income go with them.

Last spring while Bill Switzer was coaching his son’s baseball team he started experiencing back pain. He thought the pain was from previous back problems but after numerous doctor’s visits and many tests he was diagnosed with a widely metastatic kidney cancer. This was not basic simple kidney cancer because removing the kidney was not an option.

Bill was a fighter and a retired NYC firefighter. After almost a year of radiation and chemo he lost the battle to this beast on March 12, 2018. With him died his pension and now his wife worries about providing for her children and losing their house.

Bill was a kind and gentle man and loved his wife and children. He coached his daughter’s softball and basketball teams and later on coached his son’s football and baseball teams. He loved our kids as his own.

We, his baseball and football family, and Good Shepherd family have started this GoFundMe Page to try and raise as many funds as possible so that his wife does not have to worry about losing everything and so that she and her children can mourn their dad and husband. Please share share share and help us raise as much as possible. No donation is too little or too much. Every little bit helps. Thank you all in advance.
