Jimmie vs. Lymphoma

Raised by 71 people in 20 months
Jimmie McDermott is a 31 year old upstate New Yorker who has a video game collection that would make you weep. He is a collector of all things Marvel and D.C., and can whoop you in movie trivia. Much like his comic book hero of choice, Deadpool, Jimmie was recently diagnosed with Cancer. B-cell Lymphoma. When I called my brother to hear the news of how one of the most terrifying office visits he'd ever attended went, our call went like this:Andy: What's up?Jimmie: Nothin.Andy: Nothing? Really? Nothing is new?Jimmie: ...uhhh... I got a haircut.My brother is funny. Funnier than I am. He is the person that made me want to be funny. He is the perfect audience member, even when it's just the two of us hanging out. His laugh is not easily found, but when you hear it, you know you've earned it.Jimmie will be missing a lot of work, and has some expensive healthcare things coming up that I'm afraid he won't be able to keep up with. The stress of money should be the last thing on his mind, which is why I've started this page. My brother is very proud, and probably doesn't like the idea of me doing this. But fuck it. He can fight me after he's done kicking this lymphoma b(ullshit's) ass.Please donate, my family and I will be so grateful. More importantly, we are people who pay it forward. Let's all get through this together.

Hey everyone!

First, thank you all for your help and kind words. I have been terrible about updating this, and I finally have a little time to update everyone.

Happy to say, Jimmie is cancer free.

He still has regular check ups for the next couple of years to monitor against risk of regrowth.

So, again:

Jimmie is Cancer Free. :)

But not debt free. :(

If you’d like to contribute, feel free.

I have t shirts for sale also, hit me up!
