Here's the story from his brother!!

Well folks, I have kept this off the board untill now becaues I have had the best hopes for things, but now it is getting bad. Two months ago my little brother, Kevin Snyder, was diagnosed with cancer. He has a rare form known as AT/RT. Yesterday at about 3:00pm I was called and told to get to the hospitol as fast as I can. I live in the Raleigh area and it was a 7 hour ride. Not knowing if I would make it in time I flew up 95 to get there. I made it and he is stable in PICU. But the docs told us yesterday we can take him home because there is nothing else they can do for him but make him comfortable. HOW CAN ANYONE JUSTIFY TAKEING THE LIFE OF A 9 YR OLD BOY. My mom has taken a leave of absence from work and the bills are getting really far behind. We are haveing a fund raiser to help out this Friday at the Vineland Ice rink.
There will be a 50/50, Shirt sales, and skill shots.

General admission is 6$

All proceeds will go to my mom and step dad. If you would like to attend and want more info call My sister or brother in-law

Chris 856-881-6219
Bob 609-517-6473

If you cannot make it but would still like to make a contribution please call them or me Steve 919-368-3843.

Thank you in advance for any suppot and prayers..

I know I'm posting this from a fishing website (njstriper.com) on a hunting web site but we're all in this sportsmen thing together.

I'll offer the same here I did on njstriper.

If any youth fisherman 17 or younger are interested in the tournament or father/mother - son/daughter combo but times are tight, I donated some money, let me know and I will alot my donation to your entry fee.
This benefit is for a child, and to me their isn't any better time spent than with your kids doing something you both love.

Let me know or email me [email protected] and I will let the organizers of the tournament know.
