Rick Anderson Fundraiser
Rick Anderson of Fargo is fighting his second cancer in just two years. In 2019, he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. After treatment and surgery in Fargo, he was referred to the Mayo Clinic. The additional treatment and surgery was successful at removing the cancer, but resulted in the loss of his stomach and spleen which created additional challenges.
On September 11 of this year, Rick was hospitalized when his partner found him unresponsive. While inpatient, a brain tumor was found. Following steroid treatment to reduce swelling, the tumor was removed. The tumor was diagnosed as glioblastoma unrelated to the pancreatic cancer. Rick has not been able to return to work due to fatigue, mobility and memory issues. Although physically and financially challenging, Rick has elected to continue treatment and spend as much time as he can with his partner Dennis, his 2 grown children, and 2 beautiful grandchildren.
A donation made online to Rick through this fundraiser will be boosted 20% by Lend A Hand Up. 100% of gifts made online through this fundraiser will go to the bank fund established for Rick’s benefit. Cash/Check gifts are also appreciated but should be made directly to Dennis Jackson and dropped by Gate City Bank | 1501 S University Dr | Fargo, ND 58103.
