Help Kevin beat cancer!

In February this year, Kevin Quinn was diagnosed as stage III with a rare and aggressive form of bladder cancer (urachal adenocarcinoma). Today, there are only 300 medically documented cases known - making up less than 1% of all bladder cancers. It's unclear how long Kevin's treatments will be needed as the prognosis drastically changes for patients that present with advanced stages of this disease. This campaign is to help ease the financial burdens and your donation will help to cover medical costs and other necessities for him and Joy.

Kevin's story
Over the last few years, Kevin has been experiencing stomach issues and was unable to get a proper diagnosis on what the underlying issue was. Fast forward to January 2020, when he went for a surgery to attempt to correct the ongoing stomach pains. The surgery was successful, however on February 14, Kevin's life was turned upside down as he was diagnosed with stage III cancer. 

Since then, Kevin's been doing everything in his power to beat this. He is currently undergoing chemo, in addition to seeking complementary alternative medicine. He has started a strict diet ...so much so that he has lost 70 pounds (32kg) in the course of 3 months.

How you can help
We're raising money to help support Kevin and his wife Joy during this difficult time as he fights for his life. Cancer takes an enormous toll on the health of patients — and it also has a tremendous financial impact. He currently is unable to work, and due to the COVID-19 situation, Joy is also only able to work part time.
Kevin has always been there for each of us as a friend, brother, coach, teammate and colleague. Now is our time to show up for him, no matter how big or small you can contribute today.
