Has Rusty or his family touched your life?

Many of you know Rusty and his family.  You all know that if somebody is in need they will be the first to step up and help in any way they can. Now its time to show that these acts of kindness have not gone unnoticed. Now is our chance to give back to a family that has helped us all at some point in time.

Rusty's Cancer Fight

Carlos "Rusty" Blanc was diagnosed with squamous cell cancer in August of 2010. It came back on June 2013 in his jaw bone. Rusty proceeded to have a full reconstruction of his jaw bone. After the procedure the doctors found two bumps under his chin and collar bone on the right side. His doctor-surgeon Dr. Quang Luu told the family on March 4th, 2014 that both bumps are cancer and that he has around six months to a year to live. Rusty's dream has always been to travel Route 66.  He wants to see all the historic things along the way. Coming home he would like to travel back a different route and see more of our historic country. We need to help make his dream come true.

What can you do?

The simplest thing would be to donate some money to help the cause. It couldn't be easier.  Some other things that you may not think of is donating gift cards or gas cards.  Many times you have these laying around and will never get is the time to put them into good use.

If you live along Rusty's travel route you could sponsor a night or two at a local campground for him to stay.  Or you could fill up his gas tank. Or if you have a connection and can get him a free RV is the time to cash in those favors.

If you want to donate gift cards, gas cards or something else not on the list, then please feel free to reach out to Lonnie Jones through Facebook.
