Ricardo's Cancer Treatment

On November 3rd, 2017, Ricardo Sanches was diagnosed with stage 1 neck cancer. Ricardo is 43 years old man, a loving husband, and a father of  one young son, age 8 years old. He has spent the last several years working hard in the Restaurant service indusry to provide the best life for his family.

Due to the nature of cancer, Ricardo will have to undergo immediate chemotherapy that will be followed by surgery(ies). There will be extensive expenses that accompany these procedures and recoveries.

On top of the obvious medical expenses, the Sanches’'s will lose main income during treatments. Ricardo is employed part time and doesn’t have insurance. The loss of this income is not covered by any disability through an employer.

All funds received will be used to help offset expenses for Ricardo's cancer treatments and to alleviate financial stresses on his child and wife.

Your generosity will be forever appreciated by Ricardo, Karen and Yandel.
