Dave Barkes was diagnosed with ALS in October 2016 and was given 6 months to 24 months to live.
This you caring page was started in February in order to do three things.
1. Dave needed a mobility Van (That is accomplished)
2. Dave wanted to take the trip of a lifetime to see the ocean with his family. (That is accomplished)
3. Dave wanted to use the left over money to pay for medical bills related to his condition.
With the help of hundreds of people from all over the world, Dave has raised close to $50,000. We are trying to finish strong for Dave and help him reach his goal.
We are planning a party on July 1st, 2017 from 3 pm to 6 pm where Dave will have an opportunity to spend time with his friends and family.
We are also seeking donations for a silent auction to try to raise the rest of the money needed for Dave.
Thank you to everyone who has helped the Barkes family so far by sending meals, cards, letters, and have been there for whatever need arises. Thank you to all everyone who has been uplifting the family in prayer while surrounding them with love. Thank you to those who have donated hotel rooms, and have financially supported Dave and Pam. Also thank you to all of the professional news media and advertising people who have got Dave the local and national exposure that kept the fundraiser moving forward at a steady pace.
Each and every person involved, have enabled the Barkes family to make memories that they will cherish for decades to come.
Thank you for loving the Barkes family and surrounding Dave in love.
Again, words cannot ever properly express how grateful Dave, Pam, Kyle, Conner, Cameron, and Katie are.
Thank you all.
