Lymphoma & Bone Marrow Transplant

Ricky is a young man, loved by many. He is 26 years old and suffering from Cancer. Blessed with many talents, he was pursuing a basketball career overseas that was put on hold due to a poor prognosis. Since April he has been in and out of the hospital after rupturing his spleen, that at the time was 3x the normal size. After surgically removing the spleen,  and months of testing he was diagnosed with a rare form of of blood cancer, Gamma Delta T Cell lymphoma. Not much is known about this cancer, making it hard to treat, requiring numerous rounds of highly intense IV chemotherapy, and eventually a bone marrow transplant. Ricky is having a tough time dealing with this  disease as it's side effects are crippling him. He is no longer able to perform activity's of daily living like the average. The hope we all have for his healing is infinate. We are asking for donations to help ricky. This fund will help pay for Ricky's treatment and transplant, recovery process, and daily living expenses. Other ways to help would be to share any knowledge or good will regarding his situation, or joining the bone marrow transplant registry at bethematch.com.
Thank you for all the suppport.
