The family and friends of Kevin Ripp are uniting to raise money to help with his battle against a stage 4 cancer. Thank you for your support

Kevin underwent a craniotomy to re sect a 7.4x5.4x5.2 cm tumor from the right temporal region of his brain on August 6, 2012. Kevin found out on August 8, 2012 that the pathology report diagnosed him with a stage 4 Glioblastoma multiforme, which is a cancerous and malignant brain tumor. This type of brain tumor is fast growing and has a 100% recurrence rate, therefore Kevin faces a lifelong battle. Future surgeries and subsequent treatment are highly likely. Just as Kevin’s battle will be ongoing, so will the financial burden. Kevin’s friends and family are now looking to raise money to pay for the medical bills and to support his health regime as he enters a period of extensive treatments.. The Surgeon said that he would have to start radiation and Chemotherapy in as little as 3 weeks.

Kevin was born in Janesville, WI on Sept 1, 1960 he is the son of Virgil(deceased) and Evelyn Ripp. He is a farmer that is what he has done his whole life. Kevin and his brother Donald had ran the farm for years before Donald tragically died in June of 2010. Then Kevin continued to run the farm. When Donald died they sold the dairy cows and Kevin no longer had health insurance.

If you would like to contact Kevin or his family please feel free to email him at
