Rick Rosson Cancer Treatment Fund

This is Rick Rosson (my dad). He's a husband, a dad to three and a Poppa to five awesome grand babies. Three years ago, he was diagnosed with a very aggressive Prostate Cancer- stage 4. His diagnosis came only a couple months after the very same cancer took his father.

Dad underwent surgery almost immediately to have the cancer mass removed, followed by targeted radiation to clean up anything that straggled behind. We waited to hear that all of the cancer was gone and that he could resume life as normal, but we were only left with bad news. Dad's numbers started rising again and very quickly- doubling each time he had a blood test run. The only option he was given was a hormone treatment that "might" give him 1-5 years. We were not satisfied with that answer. So we dug for other options, leading us to a very reputable homeopathic facility that has taken in many sick patients and sent them away well.

This option left us with hope that dad might have the opportunity for full on healing rather than just a gloomy "this is how long you might have to live". Dad filled out paperwork, applied and was accepted. He made it down to the facility just last week and has begun treatment.

Here's where the fundraising is needed. Dad has already invested a large amount of money into this treatment. Because this treatment doesn't involve conventional medicine, insurance will not cover, so he is soley responsible for the cost. The doctors have recommended several additional treatments that will boost dad's immunity- ultimately allowing his body to kill the cancer that remains, but he just can't afford to have these other treatments.

If you know my dad, he has probably done something kind for you at one time or another. That's just who he is. He loves big and shows it by giving of himself constantly! He is a true servant and loves nothing more than to put smiles on people's faces. He was and is a great dad to his children and he adores his grandchildren! Dad has given so much to those around him, so I wanted to extend an invitation to those whose lives may have been touched by him and just ask if maybe we could pitch in a little bit to help in his time of need. Thank you so much in advance!P
