Rick Alvey’s Fight Against Cancer
This page is for my friend Rick Alvey. I met Rick when he hired me to teach piano at Mechanicsville Music in the summer of 2015. Rick is a fighter, and has been fighting a recurrence of cancer that occurred years ago, and was thought to be long gone. In November of 2015 Rick began having symptoms and it was determined that the cancer had returned, this time in his lungs. He has been fighting non-stop, with chemo and radiation ever since. Rick has not been able to work and his wife Jennifer and daughter Bryanne have been juggling assisting Rick, and operating their family business, Mechanicsville Music. Rick is getting ready to head to Duke January 8, 2018, and we hope to raise money to help with gas, food, lodging, and unexpected expenses that medical insurance does not cover. Please consider helping Rick and his family. Thank you for taking the time to read this story.+ Read More
Rick is having a rough week, but he’s a fighter. Please pray for his comfort and eating. In the meantime, every prayer, good wish, positive vibe, share and/or donation is greatly appreciated! The goal has been increased. Chipping away at that jnsurance deductible...
Folks - Rick started another round of chemo today. Still trying to meet their insurance deductible. Jennifer shared with me today how grateful they are to have this money to help with that. Thanks to all who have donated. Please continue to share this page if you would.
A great picture of the Alvey Family. We hope to see Rick feeling like his old self again soon! Thank you so much for your kind comments, prayers, and donations. They are making a big difference for this family !
Hi everyone - Rick has returned from Duke. At this time, he will be continuing treatment in Richmond. Insurance is at times delaying authorization, and not covering certain things. The Alveys are so apprec iative of this go fund me so that they can access funds to help! Thank you all so very very much!
