Sierra Vista, AZ (PRWEB) May 03, 2013
Sierra Vista Personal Injury Attorney Perry Hicks is helping raise money for a friend and neighbor with cancer who needs chemotherapy treatment. The lawyer, of The Law Offices of Perry Hicks, P.C., is helping organize a raffle drawing that is being held at the end of this month for the benefit of the cancer victim.
The fundraiser raffle is being held for Bob Graf, who has found himself again dealing with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL), a form of cancer that he was diagnosed with six years ago. In order to have a chance at fighting this disease, Mr. Graf needs to obtain treatment with Retuximab and Bendamustine, which would cost him more than $29,000. The cancer victim, however, is unable to pay for treatment—he lost both his job and his insurance about five months ago, and he has been repeatedly denied when he has requested assistance.
Mr. Graf has been a Sierra Vista resident for more than eight years and has been highly involved in his community. He has served as a volunteer for multiple organizations, which include the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, Friends of the San Pedro River, Horsin’Around and Southwest Wings. Attorney Hicks and others involved in the raffle are now asking the local community to give back to this individual and help him in his time of need.
Those who want to provide assistance can purchase a raffle ticket for $100. The drawing will take place on May 31, 2013. The first-place raffle winner will receive $3,000, the second-place winner will receive a 14-karat Italian gold collar necklace that has a value of $1,200, and the third-place winner will receive either an AKC-ASCA Aussie puppy or $700. Tickets can be purchased at The Law Offices of Perry Hicks, Cochise College Nursing Department, Sierra Vista Herald and Au Naturale (located at 1967 S. Frontage Rd., Sierra Vista, AZ). Individuals also have the option of giving donations through Attorney Hicks’ website at http://www.thecountrylawyer.com.
