    Hey Guys,

    One of our writers @BuffloSoldier is going through some hard stuff right now, and we’re asking the community to come together to help out. His wife was diagnosed with four cancerous masses in her breast, it’s a grade 2, stage 2B invasive ductal carcinoma. It has spread to the nearby lymph node, which means after her chemo and surgery, radiation is necessary. Four to six months of chemo, then surgery, then recovery, then radiation. It will be at least a full year of treatment overall.

    I think we can easily help them out even more. So this is what we’re going to do, we are going to give away 5 random shirts to people who donate. You can donate anything you feel comfortable with. You will receive an email from You Caring, there’s 3 things under Payment Amount, send me a pm with those 3 things. Once I receive the PM, I will throw your name in a hat, and we will do a random drawing for the 5 Shirt winners. This is a great cause and a way to really help someone in this community that works his butt off trying to help everyone learn Soccer.

    The You Care link: http://www.youcaring.com/medical-fundraiser/help-dawn-fight-breast-cancer/296413

    Thanks so much for helping out.
    Team RG

    Thanks, gents. Been a very eventful day already. Check my Twitter feed, but insurance denied what my wife’s oncologist wanted bad we have to start with a harsher, less effective treatment for two months.

    I speak from experience when I say dealing with the red tape is a bitch. Even though it’s difficult, keep your heads up! Thoughts and prayers to you and yours.

    Very very cool.

    Just donated now. I had melanoma removed from my neck last year that had fortunately not spread to the lymph nodes, so I didn’t have to deal with chemo/radiation. My aunt is now going through chemo for pancreatic cancer, which is one of the worst. All cancer sucks though.

    Can’t say it enough how happy I am to be apart of this community. We’ve raised over $6,000 for Aris and Dawn’s family.

  • terrymandangle

    3 members of my immediate family had 4 different types of cancer, all are luckily still with us. Good luck to your wife. Donation made. Very nice to see the community pull together like this. Turns out were not just a bunch of degenerate gamblers after all huh?
