Family and friends of Kerry Ryan Nobles UNITE to raise money for his battle against Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma!

On Tuesday April 12th 2011, Kerry Ryan Nobles, a father of 4 children (Ryan Jacob Burr, Juliana Rayn Burr, Kate Makinley Burr, and Elise Marie Nobles) was diagnosed with Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma. Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) is the most common type of lymphoma. Although there are more than 30 types of NHL, diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is the most common type, making up about 30 percent of all lymphomas. In the United States, Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma affects about 7 out of 100,000 people each year.

Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma is a fast-growing, aggressive form of NHL. Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma is fatal if left untreated, but with timely and appropriate treatment, over half of all patients can be cured.

The first discovered site of Kerry's Lymphoma was when a 7 inch tumor had been discovered in his right distal femur bone. The tumor is consuming Kerry's femur, which is the longest and the thickest bone in the human body. Kerry will have to undergo many medical procedures including (PET Scans, MRIs, X-Rays, Radiation Treatment, and Chemotherapy). These medical expenses can be very costly, and with Kerry's child support and normal utilities, we (his family) would appreciate any financial help that you can give..... and even more importantly.... moral support.

We all love Kerry very much, help us be in his corner as he goes toe to toe with Lymphoma. Help him keep his head in the game and not have to worry so much about all of these medical expenses. Your donations are appreciated more than you could ever know.

I found this quote on a wall in JJ's Alley one night when Kerry and I went there to listen to open mic night as he contemplated playing that night but got too tipsy. He promised he would play open mic night if enough people went to support him!!! But anyways! Here's the quote.

It brought tears to his eyes!!

"Live like you're dying...... Die like you're living..... and treat each goodbye like it is your last...... because one day.... it will be." - unknown
