This is the Rich Breitkreutz Cancer Care fund. The funds will be used for Rich's medical costs and related expenses not covered by insurance

Rich was diagnosed with stage 4 esophageal carcinoma in March, 2012. He began to have symptoms in October, 2011; but went undiagnosed, therefore, untreated.

We are grateful for every day we have together and continue to pray that he will beat the odds that have been placed before him. We were given the awful news this week that after months of aggressive radiation and chemotherapy, the cancer is progressing and they found two new spots on his bones. Making surgery out of the question.

Rich is a wonderful husband and proud father of six children. He also has six beautiful grandchildren. Since his diagnosis, he has been unable to work and our savings and depleted to nothing. His insurance was not approved until March, so the emergency room visits and tests before then have to be paid out of pocket. We are trying to raise money to help cover these and any other costs the family may have so that he can concentrate on beating this disease. Thank you all for your time, donations, support and most of all prayers. We do believe in God and miracles and continue to pray each day for one.

God Bless you all
The Breitkreutz family
