Ron Adams' Race To Beat Lung Cancer

Ron Adams, father of three and grandfather of five has spent his entire life in the Midwest - always with a fascination for motorcycles and specialty vehicles. At a recent doctor visit, Ron was unexpectedly diagnosed with Adenosquamous Carcinoma, a rare form of Lung Cancer.

Ron is scheduled for Lung Lobectomy Surgery April 3rd, where approximately 50% of his right lung will be removed. Initial recovery estimate is 8 weeks with minimal physical activity, and full recovery hopefully within 6-8 months. Breathing and rigorous physical activity will be permanently reduced. 
Chemotherapy and/or radiation may also be required for follow up treatments.

Now Ron is focused on a different kind of race. He, a self-employed small business owner, took his love for motorcycles and specialty vehicles to the internet, and created a business and website online, which he has owned and operated for over 14 years. 

His wife Char, has spent the last 27 years working as a Direct Support Professional with intellectual disability clients. 

This past year, they uprooted their lives and moved to another state to be closer to family, which created a dramatic shift in their lives.  

Ron’s cancer, although caught early, will make a profound impact on their lives in the next few months with a significant income loss from the many unexpected and uncovered medical expenses. 

Family members set up this GoFundMe page to support Ron and Char as they maneuver the murky waters and challenges of facing and beating lung cancer.
