If you live in Central Florida and have children, then you probably have heard of Richard Peeples also known as Mr. Richard. He’s a local children’s musician who enjoys making children sing and dance. His wife Danielle also loves children, she teaches at a low income elementary school. In 2011 she was teacher of the year!
Danielle was diagnosed with breast cancer last June. She went through treatments and had a mastectomy in December. Unfortunately, the breast cancer spread to her brain. Danielle is fighting for her life, has used up all her sick leave and medical bills are piling up. Richard is still performing, but has lost about 10% of his gigs to be with his wife. Thanks to a neighbor starting a fundraising drive at the website GoFundMe.com they are getting by and his fans are helping out.
Here is the piece from Local Fox News including a video.
There is a fund raiser coming up in June, so please help spread the word!
