Please Help Sam w/Medical Expenses

Thank You for coming to our Go Fund Me Page for Sam Ramker.
I (Cindi Sue) have been working for my brother Sam at Sammy Jr’s Bar for quite sometime and along with my siblings & much loved patrons we have started this Go Fund Me Page for Sam.  As most of you know Sam & Kristy own Sammy Jr’s bar in Rhinelander Wisconsin since 2011. Sam has through the years held many benefits, memorials, and fundraisers in his bar to help others and his community in their time of need.  Well “NOW” Sam needs our help.  Sam was diagnosed with Stage 4 Melanoma on March 19. The cancer was first found on his liver on March 7th which led to more testing. He then had a MRI of the liver to confirm findings which led to a biopsy. After discovering it was definitely Melanoma he went for a MRI of the brain on Easter Sunday. MRI of brain was normal. The next day he went for a PET scan for staging of the cancer. The PET scan showed cancer was in the liver, lungs, pelvis, sciatica, lumbar spine and thoracic spine. Due to the cancer it has caused 4 fractures in his pelvis and multiple fractures to the spine. He started immunotherapy April 5th which created many side effects in the beginning. He ended up spending three weeks in the hospital. In this time Sam lost over 30 pounds & while in the hospital he had another CT scan which they found a new tumor on his heart on the left side around the valve entering your heart. They wanted to do surgery but after talking it over with multiple doctors, it was decided it was too risky at this time to remove because that would cause treatment to be delayed for at least 6 weeks. They decided to go with plan B which included Sam taking radiation. His treatments are at the Vanderbilt University in Nashville Tennessee which is quite a distance away from their home. Because this cancer has been so aggressive and while also waiting to qualify for disability, we in the meantime have set up this Go Fund Me Page to help Sam. Your donation will help towards ENORMOUS past & future medical bills, treatments, co-pays, ongoing out of pocket expenses, such as medicine & regiment food diet.. So PLEASE donate as much as you can, every little bit helps. Please also spread the word, tag friends & family, hit the share button and most importantly PLEASE keep sending the prayers. We will keep this page, Sammy Jr’s Facebook & Team Sammy page updated on Sam’s progress & future events so please check back often. Thank You for your donation and support. God Bless (Team Sammy)
