The family and friends of Rick and Jeanne are uniting to raise money to help with his battle against lung cancer. Please show your support

Rick was diagnosed with stage four lung cancer and heart disease. He just underwent surgeory in July to remove the lung. The Doctors were not able to remove the lung due to complications. Now the fight begins with chemo starting in a few weeks.
Rick is a husband to Jeanne and her 3 great children. Rick has lost his job and is not able to work due to the frequency of recurrances and treatment needed to fight this. Jeanne has lost her job at the retirment home to take care of him. They have been trying to get disability but still have to wait the 5 month waiting period. They are loosing their insurance as of August 31, 2012 which is very expensive and covers very little, especially the high tech scans and tests needed to keep on top of this disease. However, even with the insurance the medical and living expenses has been overwhelming. This battle has drained their family both mentally and financially. Rick is in the battle of his life right now and the mounting medical bills are a worry we would like to take away from them. We can't change this disease, but we can change how they fight it! However, we remain hopeful that he will beat the odds, and grateful for each day we are given.
Thank you all for your donations, support and most importantly prayers. We do believe in miracles and we pray for one each day.
God Bless you.
