ARCast with Ron Jacobs
Ron Jacobs Dercums Disease Fund
Ron has the incurable and very painful Dercum's Disease. This fund will pay for an experimental treatment not covered by insurance.
In October 2011 Ron began feeling symptoms. Soon this once healthy man who had completed triathlons and even a half-marathon could no longer run, work or drive. By 2013 he could no longer live on his own and requires 24*7 care. When we heard about a study carried out by Dr. Karen Herbst on patients being treated by a CVAC machine with very positive results we knew that we had to do everything possible to allow Ron to receive this treatment. The CVAC machine is expensive and is not covered by insurance because the treatment is considered experimental at this time. Please help in any way you can.;
