On February 2, 2017 Rick was diagnosed with Stage IV Colon cancer with metastases. He has fought so very hard over the past year, however, he is getting very tired now. The cancer has grown resistant to all medication and is no longer an option for treatment. He is surrounded by our immediate family with much love as we keep him as comfortable as possible. We will try to keep you updated as often as we can. Much love to all. ** IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO DONATE TO THE FAMILY, please do NOT do it through the links on this site. The family does not receive those donations. Please contact us directly via FB or email to give directly to the family. Thank you so much!
