A raffle for CCSVI treatment

Here is a message I was forwarded from my friend, Richard Beecroft, who is asking people to buy tickets for a raffle to get a free trip to Mexico, but which will also get him CCSVI treatment:

Hello and I hope you are well.
A friend of mine Richard Beecroft has had MS for the past 40 years. Unfortunately, it is getting worse. Even simple tasks like washing, dressing and walking have become a challenge for Richard. He is also fighting Trigeminal Neuralgia, (an MS complication), which is often so painful he becomes completely debilitated. I’m contacting you today to ask for your support in helping him overcome this devastating illness.
You may have heard of the controversial CCSVI treatment that is changing the lives of MS people all over the world. This procedure is a simple angioplasty that can dramatically improve the health and overall quality of life in MS patients. Richard is a candidate for the CCSVI procedure, (having been already been tested), but he can't get this treatment in Canada. Fortunately, Clinics of the Heart in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico not only offers CCSVI treatments but also has a great way for MS patients, who are financially challenged, to get this treatment. They have created a raffle for a Grand Prize for two to a choice resort in Mexico (see website below). Your purchase of a $10 ticket goes towards both the raffle and the treatment for the MS person. 
So, to help Richard, AND for the chance to win a fabulous trip to sunny Mexico, go directly to: and follow the instructions. You can buy your tickets online via a secure PayPal site where your credit card and personal information is protected and not accessible by any others (including the fundraisers). After 1,000 tickets have been sold, the Grand Prize winner will be drawn, and Richard will be able to get his treatment!!
Whether you buy tickets or not, please forward this request to everyone you know. We need to reach as many people as possible so that he can get this procedure done and experience an improvement in his health and quality of life.
Richard would love to answer your questions. Please e-mail him at
Thank you very much for your help and support. 
I asked Richard what happens if the 1000 tickets aren't sold, and he said that the person running the raffle said that the money would be returned to everyone who bought tickets.  Rickard also said that, in his case, that would not be a problem, because he is half-way to his goal (1000 tickets), and his family would buy the rest of the tickets if nobody else did.
