Please join us to raise money for David's medical and living expenses during his treatment for Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Save a Yarte!

For those of you who don't know my brother David, he's your typical Yarte - exceedingly kind and loyal, likes to sleep and play video games, he can dance. He's the second youngest in the family at 27-years old.

At the end of February, David was diagnosed with Stage 4 Hodgkin's Lymphoma. What started as a small lump is now a growth on his chest as well as masses in his neck and ribs.

He does not have insurance so he can't be treated at the cancer center in Sioux City. Instead, he will be traveling to Iowa City (10-hours roundtrip) to receive chemotherapy for the next six months at the University of Iowa's Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center.
He's in the first few weeks of his treatment plan. The doctor believes he has a strong chance of recovering.

I'll update this site with his progress and news on fundraising events.

I know David cares for his family and friends immensely and would love to hear from you. Please send any cards or well wishes to our Mom's house:
1316 21st Street
Sioux City, IA 51104.
David will be staying here between chemo treatments.

Thank you to everyone who's reached out to us during this time. Your support has been unwavering and completely amazing.
