Don has been fighting pancreatic cancer for almost a year now.
He is on his second battle with cancer and sadly his last.
In addition to battling cancer, Don has been fighting the City of Sacramento during this whole time to obtain the basic benefits due to him. In addition to trying to prevent Don’s workman’s comp claim from being accepted, the City is also denying regular benefits he is entitled to and payed for.

This includes that the City Of Sacramento will not pay burial fees, even though Don’s cancer is directly related to his 30 years of service to the City of Sacramento.

The City has also denied his ability to seek alternative treatments that could have saved or prolonged his life. The City of Sacramento is also demanding that Don see one of their doctors to "Confirm" the diagnosis of cancer, yet the City has pushed this meeting off for months, and have even canceled it, in an effort to prevent providing the benefits Don has worked so hard to earn. Currently, Don is not even healthy enough for a proper CT scan, he is in the hospital, and he is not well enough to make it to the City’s doctor’s office. I never thought that I would be setting something like this up, but our family can use your help. Both Jon and I have been contributing what we can to help pay the medical bills, but with the refusal of the City to pay burial fees when the time comes, our family could use your help. Thank you so much for reading and considering our family's need.
