    STARTING NOW! The Decker Boy's Medical Expenses Fund Raising Raffle Event
    [​IMG]

    Every so often, someone brings a need to our attention and whenever possible, we try to help meet that need. This time it is a member of this forum and long time member of the Raptor community as a whole. Will Decker's @KaiserM715 young twin boys have been fighting Myeloid Sarcoma (a type of Acute Myeloid Leukemia). Because of this, their medical and other associated bills are mounting by the day.

    SO, that is where I come in. As I have done in the past, I am announcing a Raffle Benefit fund raising event. The goal? Reaching the $40K goal set at the donation link below. Below are the rules and how it works.

    1. To participate, all raffle tickets will be $5 each. Donate as much as you want toward the prize being currently raffled.

    2. ALL DONATIONS are to be provided at THIS LINK and include SOME kind of identifier like your forum username. Your donation must be marked in some form referring to the fund raising raffle so that we know who to include on it since there will be folks donating from other sources from time to time.

    3. Raffle time periods will vary depending on what is being raffled off.

    4. Each $5 donation counts as an entry into the current raffle only, donation entries are not carried forward into the next drawing item raffle. Only one winner will be selected for each item being given away.

    5. Enter as many times as you like for each raffle item.

    6. All raffle drawings will be held on www.random.org and the results will be made public after each raffle.

    7. Each winner will be notified at the time of the drawing and informed on how to collect on their prize.


    ADDED BONUS: During this fund raising event, we will be offering two extra fund raising items. First, 1% of ALL sales made through us for anything purchased from myself or @[email protected] will be donated to the effort. So every purchase made helps to raise more money for them. PLUS, all email invoices sent by us through Paypal will have an option to provide a "Tip" when paying for those invoices. ALL Tips provided, not matter how large or small will be donated to the fund raising effort (Minus a 3% fee for receiving the "Tip"). For example, if you "Tip" $30, we will donate $29.10 to the fund raising effort total.

    THIS IS THE LINK TO MAKE A DONATION




    Please help support the Decker family with donations and prayers toward their herculean journey of cancer treatments and bone marrow transplants for two year old identical twins Seth and Joel.
    _______________________________
    A cancer diagnosis is devastating for any family, especially when it's a child. Now imagine that times two! That is exactly what the Decker family is going through right now. After both being diagnosed with low platelet counts (IPT) around a year ago, two year old identical twins, Seth and Joel, have both been diagnosed with Myeloid Sarcoma (a type of Acute Myeloid Leukemia). As if that wasn't enough to fathom, both boys also require bone marrow transplants.

    Seth was first hospitalized in November 2016 for leg pain and trouble walking. He was diagnosed and his Myeloid Sarcoma treatment began in December 2016. He has undergone 4 months (four 28 day blocks) of inpatient chemotherapy, a broken leg and a bone marrow transplant. He is recovering well but will remain hospitalized for several weeks and will require several months of isolated/quarantined recovery at home.

    Everyone was hoping and praying that Joel would receive a bone marrow transplant before any cancer signs. Unfortunately, after seeing some similar signs, he was diagnosed with the same cancer on March 21, 2017. Joel has just started his blocks of the same chemotherapy treatment that Seth went through. Once his 3-4 months of cancer treatments are complete, Joel will also undergo a bone marrow transplant. Post transplant, he will also require several more weeks of hospitalization and several months of isolated/quarantined recovery at home.

    Both boys are living at Texas Children's Hospital on different floors, each with a parent. That leaves big brother living at home with Grandma. With all this going on, the family has been out of work for several months, and there will be several more still to come. With that, and the mounting hospital bills (months of hospital room costs, procedures, tests, transfusions, transplants, medications, etc.- all doubled), we are asking for financial help for the family, in any amount. Thanks be to God, many have come forward to help with food and other necessities. Prayers of health, healing, comfort and strength are also GREATLY APPRECIATED! Thank you and may God bless you for your generosity and support!

    **Please note that any funds raised over the needed expenses of this family will be donated to cancer charities (most likely BIG Love and His Grace). Will is tracking both expenses and donations and will be able to share the donation amounts to both organizations after their families journey is complete.**


    FIRST UP ON THE RAFFLE ITEM LIST! This raffle will last for three days. During that three days, all $5 donations count for one single entry. For example, if you donate $100, you get 20 entries for this current item.

    LGE/CTS Motorsports has generously donated a "Trigger Controller" and a 30" "ZRoads" light bar. Links below!

    ZROADZ 30″ Double Row Straight LED Light Bar | ZROADZ
