Raise for Ricky
Organized by: Ricky Rider
Help Ricky Rider and stop the burden Cancer causes. I am Sarah Rider, wife to Ricky Rider. I have pretty much been with ricky since our teen years and has always been a kind, giving and caring man who never asked for anything. Many of you may know Ricky from Garfield High School where he worked as a teachers assistant in the gym (basketball, volleyball and wrestling) and with the kids in detention and the incoming freshmen in the Bridge Program for almost 30 years (he might have confiscated your cell phone, but always out of love). He is a gentle and loving husband and devoted father. Sadly, Ricky has just been diagnosed with stage 4 stomach cancer. He is going to have surgery soon and we need to act now as we don't know how long or what treatment will bring, but it is URGENT. We really cannot wait another day. I am a home health care worker and our car needs repair and medical bills are piling up, I need to take Joe to appointments, care for him and be there by his side - and that means I can't work as many hours as I used to. Please take one minute and give to Ricky- anything helps, whatever you can possibly afford whether it is $5 or $50 - this man has touched the lives of thousands of teens and young adults over the years and now he needs us and he would never, ever ask - he needs us to step up and ease the burden of this terrible disease. Every day is precious to us all, our daughter just graduated from college and is now living in Atlanta,GA Anything you can do to help us with medical bills and the car will be a blessing, thank you and God bless you and your family. Help spread the word!
