Rick Alvey’s Fight Against Cancer

$5,680 of $7,500 goal

Raised by 54 people in 1 month
Created January 5, 2018
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.

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.
