Scotty's fight for his life
Organized by: Jacob Kassab

To Our Friends and Family and the Friends and Family of Scott Davis,
We don’t know where to begin. As Scotty’s closest friends, we were all shocked and distraught when we heard the news about his cancer diagnosis. It puts a knot in my stomach as I type the word "cancer" about our friend. Since his diagnosis, Scotty's amazing wife Lori has done what any devoted spouse would do for his or her soulmate. She has never left his side. Meanwhile, as Scotty continues to fight, he continues to be in and out of the hospital. Scotty is getting the best care anyone in his shoes could ask for, but this comes with a price. Both he and Lori have not been working over the past several months, and time away from work results in lost wages. So, in addition to the worrying about fighting this disease, Scotty and Lori are worrying about paying bills. This is simply not right.
What if this is one stressor that we can help take off of their plates as Scotty fights the biggest fights of his life? What if Lori can continue to care for her soulmate and not be distracted when she gets the next hospital bill? Even if it is paying a bill or part of a bill, that is one less thing that Scotty and Lori have to think about as he continues to fight. So this is what we are asking of you:
1) Please make a donation to this site to help pay for some of his medical expenses and
2) Share this page through social media so others can contribute too. Even if one or two bills get covered through this page, it's still a huge help to Scotty and Lori. Your donations will allow them to channel their energy to fight on.
About Scotty: For those of you who haven’t met Scotty, you’re missing out. I am writing this not just for those who wish to donate to this page, but for Scotty as well. He needs to know what his friends think of him, how we admire him, how we cherish every moment we have with him.
On the outside, you'll never feel thicker hair. We're not going to lie: when you hug him you must cop a feel of his helmet head (which has remained intact by the way). His voice sounds as though he just got off a plane from JFK. That distinct Brooklyn accent can be heard from the valley down to Redondo Beach. Scotty was raised in Brooklyn, went to school at University of Buffalo (Go Bulls!) and then settled with his family in Los Angeles. He has since made LA his home. He has an amazing 12-year old daughter who is planning to be Bat-Mizvahed this year.
If you know Scotty then you know about his wit, sincerity, and compassion. He’s a good man and a great friend. He is our brother. Scotty met his best friend and soulmate a few years back. Lori is the salt of the earth, the best of the best. Scotty has truly met his match. Lori has certainly raised the bar when it comes to people with integrity, class and charm. Scotty met her, fell in love and never looked back. Lori has a calming presence and the ability to always comfort those around her. Scotty is blessed to have her by his side, and we are all blessed to see just another example of a truly good compassionate human being.
If this disease is fighting Scotty's body, it is no match for his spirit. He is going to continue to fight like that boisterous New Yorker that we’ve grown to love!
