My Purple Plunge Fundaising Page

Our Story

Will you help me raise money to help a family in need?  On March 2, 2019, I am working with an amazing local non-profit, Purple Plunge to participate in the 6th Annual Purple Plunge. 


Nobody wants to go through a cancer treatment, it sucks.  No other words to describe it.  When our son, Ricky was sick in 2012, the support we received during those terrible times is why we support this organization.  It's our of giving back for all of the support we received.


We fought, our family fought, people we didn't even know fought and helped us through this horrific time.   People don't know what to do for you when you or your family gets cancer.  This is how you help. This is how you give back after you've been through it.   


Ricky's Story:

On December 27, 2011, Ricky (my son) was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma, a malignant tumor found in the bone/soft tissue. It's an agressive cancer & requires aggressive treatment. He was only 4 years old when he was diagnosed. Ricky has a smile that will light up a room, the cutest dimples you could ever hope for and a very gentle soul.  

Ricky spent 9 months in treatment and had a radical surgery called a Rotationplasty in order to save his life.  He is considered a below the knee amputee.   He completed treatment on September 16, 2012.  He has been cancer free for over 7 years.  

Please help me by making a donation, joining my team or coming out to the great event on March 2rd, 2019.
