Let's help Derrick take care of some of these bills and continue to support his 2 sons while he focuses on his health.

Derrick Powell was diagnosed with Lymphoma in August 2009. Since then, he has been through 2 rounds of chemo and radiation. He is a fighter and has 2 sons as well as a host of friends to live for. We too must help Derrick fight.... I would like to do all I can to see my friend live and watch his boys grow up, experience life, and be a testimony to others.
