Fans Of Former Nevermore Drummer Van Williams Have Thrown Their Support Behind The Rocker As His Wife Battles Cancer By Donating To A Public Fund To Help The Couple Cover Medical Expenses.
Dorraine 'Dore' Williams has been diagnosed with stage three ovarian cancer and she underwent surgery to treat the disease on Thursday (23Apr15).
Her family members launched a crowdsourcing campaign on GoFundMe.com last week (ends24Apr15) in an effort to raise $15,000 (£9,375) to contribute to treatment fees, and by Monday (27Apr15), the Williams clan was less than $1,000 (£625) away from reaching its goal.
A message from Dore's sister reads: "I've been reading her your comments that you all have posted along with your donations and some on Facebook and they have touched us deeply. Your generosity has humbled us in a way we never could have imagined and the positive messages really are making a difference in keeping a strong attitude. Once again thank you all so much for the universal love you have shown so far!"
Dore is currently recovering from the surgery in a New York hospital's Intensive Care Unit, and her rocker husband is confident she will overcome the health setback.
In a post online, he writes, "Dore and I have been together forever. She is truly one of the coolest people you can know and my rock. She has always been a very positive person and is gearing up to kick the S**T out of cancer's a**!"
