My Uncle, Richard Burckhard and wife Sharon have been married for 50 years this year & they together have 4 daughters and 14 Grandchildren. Richard loves to fish but most of all spending time with family, especially his grandchildren. But in 2010 Richard was diagnosed with Ampullary cancer which he beat and was cancer free for 5 years! But in January 2015 the rare cancer showed up again, this time it is inoperable. So due to the aggressive way they are treating this cancer with double chemo treatments and the trips to mayo, with him being an Owner/Operator of the Burckhard Trucking he is now unable to work fulltime.
So we are having a benefit for him to help with the huge financial burden this has and will continue to cause.
