Hi Facebook family,

  Anyone who knows me knows the hardest thing for me to do is ask for help. Today however I find myself in a situation where I have no choice.

  In August I found out I have cancer growing into my eye socket and I will have to have two surgeries, one to remove it and one for reconstruction.

  Unfortunately I do not have insurance so I've had to do some Dr. shopping and one very generous Dr. has said he will do it for 1/4 the rate of what it would be if I had insurance, if I can pay in cash.

Someone close to me suggested that I go on line and do this funraiser.

  Asking for charity goes against everything I believe in, however it will take me almost a year to save the $10,000 I need for the surgeries. So against my better judgement I am asking for any donations that you can spare. Small or large every penny will bring me closer to my goal of affording the surgeries, sooner rather than later.

  I know times are tough for everyone, so if you can't help that's O.K. All ask is, if you can't, please repost this on your page and keep me in your prayers.

Thank you and God Bless.

Rick
