Northvale Resident Leads Fund Drive For Friend's Cancer Treatment

NORTHVALE, N.J. — Cory Doviak saw his friend Richie "Ballgame" Barton was in need.

After getting married in October, an odd lump on Barton's knee turned out to be stage 4 bone cancer .

Doviak knew Barton would need financial support to fight the illness, so he started a GoFundMe page for the Barton family.

Ten days later, the page has nearly reached triple of the $5,000 originally sought.

Most donations have been between $50 and $100, but some organizations from the community have donated to Barton's case. Including the Pascak Valley Boys Soccer Team, who donated $850.

Barton is currently in treatment for his disease. Updates on his progress are being made through a Caring Bridge page https://www.caringbridge.org/visit/richbarton

Donations to the Barton family can be made through Doviak's GoFundMe by clicking here.
