This is the Rick Yoak Pancreatic Cancer Fund. The Funds will be used for his final days and burial expenses.

My Husband Rick was diagnosed with stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer in Late July 2012. I have known and loved this man since the age of 16, we went our own ways and when i moved back to Ohio when my husband was killed by a drunk driver i looked for Rick for about 8 years, then one day i was walking into a gas station looking into my purse and i ran directly into his chest and was i ever in shock and happy at the same moment, and we have been together ever since. We have been together for almost 14 years and married for 9 1/2 years. He is the most loving, caring and generous man you would ever want to meet. Between us we have 3 children and 12 grandchildren we love each and everyone and this is so hard on them as well as Rick and i. We need your support for Ricks Medications, Doctors Visits, Radiation and Chemo, and then for Funeral expenses. He is a strong man and always has been but this Cancer is eating him alive, we have no insurance nor Burial insurance, this was such a sudden thing that happened to us, we still cannot wrap our minds around losing this wonderful man. He is withering away to nothing and we expected radiation may make him feel a little better but when we got home today he was so sick and went to bed. I think he knows he doesn't have much time and this is killing him as well cause he loves his family so much, and we have only had such a short time together ourselves. So Please Please help support Rick and lets try to make him as comfortable as possible while we still have him here with us. We have prayed and prayed for the Dear Lord to touch him and heal him and that is all we can do, it is Gods will, even though we still want him here with us, it is in Gods time not ours. Your support would help with alot of things we cannot afford and would be greatly appreciated. If you can help please do, if you cannot.....please do one thing for me, tell the person you love that you love them everyday, never go to bed angry tell them you love them cause no one is promised tomorrow, and as Ricks wife, i am watching my loving husband die a little everyday and a piece of me dies with him. Thank you for taking the time to read Ricks story and may God Bless each and everyone of you.
