Help Gary Beat Cancer

My cousin, Gary Rooks, is fighting stage 4 pancreatic and liver cancer with a difficult chemotherapy regiment. After many years of helping developmentally disabled adults at Hunterdon Developmental Center, his diagnosis this past April led to his early retirement. Gary has spent his life helping others, not only through his career, but also as a football, wrestling, and baseball coach and official, and as a foster dad to over 30 children. He and Bonnie were fortunate along the way to become adoptive parents to 25 yo Amanda, 21 yo David, 18 yo Jowell, and 15 yo Faith. They also had an integral role in raising and mentoring their nephews, who consider Gary a father. Gary has spent his entire life helping others, now it's time for us to do what we can to help him. Please donate funds if you are able to help Gary keep up with family, household, and medical bills. Above all, please send love and prayers of support and healing to the Rooks Family. Thank you!
