EVENT DATE: Jun 25, 2011
I AM RIDING MY BIKE ACROSS CONNECTICUT, FROM STAMFORD TO STONINGTON on June 25! This is about 100 miles and will take most of the day. PLEASE help me help Erick. You can pledge per mile or donate a lump sum.
My friend of almost 30 years, Erick DeForest, was DIAGNOSED February 2011 with STAGE IV SARCOMA LUNG CANCER.
Why do I need to raise money for Erick? He needs funds to PAY HIS RENT AND BILLS for the foreseeable future. He will be in chemotherapy for a few months at least, in order to shrink the large tumor taking up 80% of his lung, and then his right lung will be removed once the tumor is a manageable size.
I would love to be able to raise enough for Erick to cover his living expenses for the next 6-12 months and GIVE HIM ONE LESS THING TO WORRY ABOUT.
