The family and friends of Fred Eckert are uniting to raise money to help with the battle to fight the pancreatic and liver cancer.

My name is Fred Eckert .I was diagnosed with stage 4 Pancreatic and Liver Cancer on July 21, 2011. Prior to that I was working full time with the Clay County Sheriffs Office for the past 22 years as a Detective investigating Internet Crimes Against Children. In short I catch child pornographers. I have dedicated my life to helping people and keeping children safe. On July 21st my world came crashing down. I had to tell my wife and two children that dad had cancer and the fight was on. I have been aggressively fighting the cancer with chemotherapy and hopefully radiation treatment in the future. The cancer has been responding to the treatment but the last scans showed the possibility that the cancer was getting used to the treatment. I have found different types of treatment that are very promising. I have been traveling back and forth from Florida to Chicago every two to three weeks for treatment. The travel has taken a large amount of money that was not covered by insurance. I am in need of funds to assist with the treatment and travel.

I am determined to fight and live. I refuse to let cancer win. I have been fighting for my whole life. It started when I was in the military and followed into becoming a Deputy Sheriff. I will never give up. The cancer has released the beast inside of me. Thank you for your support and God Bless You.
