Hearing the words, “You have cancer,” is hard to swallow. For Rich Canci, hearing these words six times was extremely difficult, but helped him take a new approach towards life. His first experience with cancer was when he turned 8 years old. Now, at 25 years old with his sixth diagnosis, Rich is focused on living a healthier lifestyle.
Included in his healthier lifestyle is alternatives to chemotherapy and radiation. Since these treatments are not covered by insurance, Rich strives to reach his goal of $75,000 on his YouCaring fundraiser to cover the costs.
Not only is he raising funds for his own treatments, Rich started the Five Time Foundation to help raise money for people diagnosed with cancer and their families. Throughout his crowdfunding journey, he learned that he has a support system and is able to help many more people fighting to survive.
If you or a loved one was diagnosed with cancer, start a free fundraiser today to help cover the medical costs.
