UPDDATE: Routing and account number added to donation info for those who wish to donate electronically to help Rex. See below.
As some of you may already know, our dear friend and fellow patriot, Rex Gero (@rxrthepoet) is fighting what will probably be his last battle on earth. He is in the final stages of pancreatic cancer in Canton, Ohio. Rex, now 62 years old, has faced this battle over the past 30 years with cancer before and won, but he has been told he has just weeks at this point.
Rex, as you know, has been a staunch fighter for freedom on Twitter and in the real world. Just before he became ill, he had worked with others to form a PAC to speak for grassroots issues which are being ignored. He has authored about 600 poems. He is working with @JoanneMoretti to have them published posthumously to benefit his two sisters. Rex accepted Christ a few months ago, not out of fear of death, but because of the kindness and generosity of his Christian friends who rallied around him when they found out he was ill.
Rex has lived a simple life as a traveling sales representative the past few years. His income was enough to get him by, but not enough to set anything aside for the future. Add to that the fact that he had had cancer in the past, and he was unable to afford any life insurance.
Rex has one simple request, that his final expenses be handled with dignity. He simply wants to know before he passes that his funeral will not be a burden or simply not covered. He only wants a simple stone and cremation with his ashes to be scattered in a forest area at his childhood home where he had played in the woods with his friends. This will not come to a lot of money.
Any amount you can donate, whether it is even five dollars would help. Send all donations directly to the bank. Please do not use the donate link on this site. That is for the upkeep and maintenance of this site.
