Eric is healthy and cancer free now, the funds that we raised literally helped pay for chemo and other needed treatments.  Eric was very grateful for our help.  He said it took a lot of pressure off him when he really needed to concentrate on his health and treatments.  In return he had his attorney set us up as a 501c3.  This has been a huge help in our mission.  He also had a web site built for us.  We have used that site all these years, until we have this new site in 2017.
Our second fundraiser was held in 2010 for Eric Schroeder.  Eric is a charitable person, responsible, had good insurance for his wife and children.  Being a healthy young man in his 30's, a small business owner, he didn't have as good an insurance plan for himself.  That became a problem when he was diagnosed with cancer.
