A northeastern Pennsylvanian man named Ruben Torres of the Poconos needs your help today.
Torres is a father to six children and adoptive father of five other siblings.
His large family is only outdone by his work as a law enforcement officer for 25 years and he wants to live to see all his children married and have their own families.
Right now he and his fellows ask that if you can contribute to his GoFundMe: http://www.gofundme.com/9z70sk .
“Ruben has done so much for others in his life and now his family is asking for our help for him,” the police department said on Facebook. “Chemotherapy is not an option for Ruben right now with alternative treatments being his only option. The treatments are very costly and the family is in need of financial support. ”
The cost for an alternative treatment for the aggressive cancer is around $30,000 dollars if treated quickly enough.
“We all love you Ruben!” The East Stroudsburg Police Department facebook page echoes comments encouraging his quick recovery.
