Cancer Support Fund for RichDavis

33487990_1538680363754320_r.jpegOn Tuesday, October 2nd -  Richard was diagnosed with a form of Testicular Cancer at the age of 26 when doctors found several tumors on his right testicle. They were found after he went to the ER experiencing intense pain, thinking it was an infection of some sort only to find out later there were tumors. The doctors learned that the larger tumor had been bleeding out, creating the intense pain and that he would need next day surgery immediately. 

Richard was admitted to Bradford Regional Medical Center where he went under constant treatment overnight in hopes to help him with the crippling pain until his surgery. His right testicle was completely removed in fear of the cancer spreading and/or coming back. 

While the recovery rate for Testicular Cancer is better than ever, Richard's only source of income is bar-tending at the Olean, NY Applebees and he currently has no insurance at this time to help with costs for his surgery along with future treatment that will be required. Richard is expected to be off of work for some time as he heals and continues with radiation or chemo-therapy to ensure that he will remain cancer free. We are fortunate that the Bradford Regional Medical Center is working on helping him with the costs of his surgery in anyway they can through charity and hopefully access to state aid. 

Richard is seeking support from anyone who is willing to help so that he will be able to pay for his rent, groceries, travel to hospital visits, prescribed medication, and any other expenses that arise as he goes through this difficult time. Please donate what you feel in your heart to this GoFundMe campaign. Richard is an amazing friend to many, he is so loved and we want to help him during this difficult, terrifying time. 

Comment on this page, share it on Facebook, Twitter or any other social media you prefer and email it to your friends and family. Every contribution, no matter how large or small, is meaningful and deeply appreciated as we want this to make Richard's life a little easier while he recovers.
