The family and friends of Ron Heitzmann are uniting to raise money to help Ron pay for treatments for Pancreatic Cancer.

Thank you for visiting Our site. Your Help is Invaluable to Us.

My Wonderful Husband, Loving Father of Our 2 Son's, (Jason & JR) and your Friend was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer in January 2010. As you can imagine, the past year has been an emotional and physical trial for Ron as well as the rest of us. To see someone so special and unique suffer and fade before your eyes is unbearable.

Ron has undergone three rounds of chemo and radiation. This, of course, is the standard treatment and offers about 2% chance of survival. Unfortunately, this conventional treatment is killing Ron faster than the cancer. We are trusting it’s not too late to get Ron into a clinical setting for more effective treatment.

The good news: Ron has been accepted at the Angeles Functional Oncology in Tijuana, Mexico. Dr. Perez has historically shown about 85% chance of surviving pancreatic cancer.

The bad news: The treatment is very expensive and is followed by costly medications prescribed for months after the treatments.

We have scraped together about half of the projected funds needed and are now turning to our friends and family. By visiting this site and giving your heartfelt gift you can help make Ron’s recovery a possibility.

Whether you know Ron as a loving husband and father or a tenacious friend and caring employer, we can all agree that a world without Ron just isn’t right – not yet. Not now.

Through over 35 years of trucking he has made many friends and impacted hundreds of lives. You know Ron loves to laugh and can trade verbal quips and jabs with the best of them. A day with Ron is a day filled with laughter. We all want more of that Ron and this chance at the Angeles Functional Oncology will probably be the answer.

Ron is a tough fighter and has amazed his Doctors with his strength. Through this ordeal Ron has embraced God and his family. He has absolutely been our earthly rock right after God. I had been looking for someone special for nearly 19 Yrs when Ron found me just 3 short yrs ago. Since then we have grown to be a Family. Ron had been a single parent since Jason was 7, giving him a stable loving home environment. Jason is now 18 & a senior. I had also been a single parent since JR was 1 yr giving him a stable loving home environment, JR is now 23. We have an awesome God, and we have thanked God many, many times for Ron.

For any who would prefer to donate by check, you may send it to:

1168 SE Sentry DR.
College Place, WA., 99324

Please remember any donation will help. There is nothing too small to help.

Thank you again for your help and your prayers as we go forward in faith and seek God’s healing and leading in the treatment process.

Janet & Jason Heitzmann & JR Hart
