MSBL Legend Vernon Wells Needs Your Help to Combat Cancer Diagnosis

Forward by Steve LaMontia

Vernon Wells needs your help.  Vernon Wells is an MSBL legend and a world-class artist.  Many of us have been privileged to call him a teammate or unfortunate enough to call him an opponent lurking in the other dugout and waiting to break your heart.  Unfortunately, I have only been on the receiving end one too many times!

Vernon has been diagnosed with a cancerous tumor in his chest that has been removed but now requires further treatment.  His wife Marilee reached out to his MSBL family to hopefully help with some of the mounting costs.  Below is her plea from the GoFundMe page :

Hello – my name is Marilee Wells, and I am the wife of V.Wells – Sports Artist, Baseball player, Husband, Father, Teammate and Friend. V has recently been diagnosed with Thymic Carcinoma and underwent surgery to remove the tumor from his chest in July. They were unable to extract all of the cancer cells and he now has to undergo 6 weeks of radiation to eradicate the remaining cancer. As we all know, cancer treatment is very expensive and most require payment up front before the radiation can even proceed. In addition, he will need special food and supplements that are easy to swallow as this radiation will temporarily damage his esophagus.
The side effects of radiation will leave him fatigued and he won’t be able to work as hard while this process is going on.
I am asking for help to raise the funds for his cancer treatment, special foods/supplements and help paying the household bills until he is back on his feet and able to work full time creating his masterpieces.
Every dollar helps and is greatly appreciated during this difficult time. If you are unable to donate, please take a moment and say a prayer for healing and full recovery for him. Thank you in advance for your kindness.
