Help "Doc" fight against Lymphoma

$9,125 of $6,000 goal

Raised by 127 people in 2 months
Today we have learned that one of our long-time friends and fellow RAT, Geof "Docdoom" Evans, has been diagnosed with Lymphoma (cancer). This news is difficult to bare and we want to do what ever is possible to help Doc in this trying time.

If you know Doc, you know he's not the kind of guy who asks for help. CRS, both present and retired RATS, have all come together in recognition that we need to not only make sure people know about this, but are provided with an opportunity to help mitigate the burden now placed on our friend, and brother in arms, Doc.

As you have likely assumed, medical bills are starting to pile up, work is being impacted and the stress of the unknown is mounting.

If you are able to, please consider contributing to this GoFundMe campaign. In addition, please share this campaign to raise awareness and gain more support.

As we have come together before, the WWII Online community is a giving community, it is a brotherhood, it is no doubt, a family.

Please be sure to share words of encouragement, Doc is a writer and your text will go a long ways to boosting his morale.

--------------------------------

Doc is one of those guys who will give you the shirt off his back and never think twice about it. He is the guy who selflessly sacrifices for his friends and projects that he believes in. For me, he was kind enough to invite me into his home during my first trip to Dallas to meet him and the RATS in 2012. He is truly a one of a kind guy who is deeply rooted into the history of WWII Online, WarBirds and our entire community.

Doc's contributions to World War II Online have been countless. He was, and remains as ever, a true believer in this community and game. He invested many sleepless and difficult nights to ensure WWII Online's health as Game Manager, as a Producer, as a writer and as someone the community could communicate with.

He was there from the early days, through the re-launch to Battleground Europe, and for many years more.

You could be sure to find him at every convention, ready to chat and share his passion of gaming with you.

We'd like you to know that CRS is managing this GoFundMe initiative to help Doc, and all funds obtained will be directly contributed to him.

Thank you for your participation, it really means a lot to all of us, especially Doc.

Congratulations everyone on successfully exceeding the goal, well done! Even though the goal has been exceeded, GoFundMe allows for continuous support to come in.

Per GoFundMe's policies, we have to provide a quick disclaimer to this campaign, so bare with us as we follow their terms of service for a moment.

As a reminder, Geof "Doc" Evans is a friend of and former employee of Playnet / CRS. CRS is managing this campaign's funds and assisted in garnering the support to help Doc out. CRS will be directly delivering these funds to Doc by check as it becomes available. CRS will have no further interaction beyond that point and is acting solely as the interchange.

Alrighty, now that the formality is out of the way (thanks for being patient on that), we're really pleased to see this campaign's progress and couldn't thank you guys enough more for so quickly responding to Doc's time of need.

Salute!

$5,010 out of a $6,000 goal so far, that's absolutely great - well done all!

Doc has written a special message, I'll add it here as an update so you can all see.

"Unbelievable. It moves more than words can say and I am totally speechless, which anyone who knows me has never happened before. Already this effort has given me spirit I didn't know I had, and I'm a spiritual kind of guy ! All I can say right now is thank you a million trillion gadzillion times over. I'm going to pop a link in here because what's at the end of that link can help me a lot if you want to give it a nudge. I put my heart and soul into them and you might get some value out of that if you're a reader of stories. Again, from a totally speechless "Doc" ... what can I say. you're all such wonderful people. "

As mentioned in the main article Doc is a bit of an author. If you'd like to support him further and check out his book(s), please check out this amazon link below.
