Hello Everyone, I am John Chambers, son of Michael Chambers, also known as Papa to many others. On 01/31/2018, Papa was driving his big rig in Cleveland, OH, when he lost consciousness and got into a minor vehicle accident. No one else was injured and His semi truck was towed away. Papa had no pulse when medical staff and police found him. Ems was able to revive him and he is currently in ICU, at a hospital in Cleveland, still unconscious but moderately stable. After a CT scan and an MRI, Doctors said that he has a cancerous tumor in the front left side of his brain. He is also dealing with post cardiac arrest and seizures caused by this tumor, and currently running a fever on top of it all. Medical staff are keeping him sedated at this time to maintain low blood pressure. The doctors and nurses are going to continue with tests and exams until they determine the next step in this long painful journey. Please continue to pray faithfully for Papa. My father is such a strong and loving Christian man and would do the same for anybody else. He is always looking out for others and is such a great person, father, and friend. I am starting this Go Fund Me page because my father was the main financial provider for my mother and younger sister and brother. Papas semi-truck is currently in a tow lot and fines to get it out right now today(02/02/2018), is at $1800. Along with various medical bills, him not being able to work anymore, and my mom temporarily not working so she is able to be here by his side through it all. I thank all of you for reading this, praying for him and our family. If you are able to donate anything towards him and our family to help out during this time, it would be very much appreciated. May God bless all of you and thanks once again for your help. Love you all. -John

02/20/2018 - ***Post Surgery Update!....Well my fathers brain surgery is complete, and with No complications. Dr. Said that he was able to remove at least 98% of the tumor, if not more. Praise God! We are hoping and praying that all of it will be gone and he will not need chemo or radiation therapy. Dr. also said that the CT scan showed no more bleeding in the brain, and they will perform another one tonight, as well as, another MRI tomorrow. Unfortunately, while being incubated, papas breathing was not strong enough yet to come off the ventilator tubes. The Lord has helped my father in the past with his breathing, and he will do it again. Papa is currently in Post Surgery recovery room and my family and I should be able to see him within a couple hours. Thanks to all for the continued thoughts, prayers, support, and may God bless you. ❤️✝️

**Tuesday 02/13/18. Update!...My father has made some great progress over the past 2 days. His vitals are steady, blood pressure still a little high like normal. He has now been opening his eyes and turning his head toward whoever is calling his name or talking with him. He has been moving his left arm and wiggling his toes. The medical staff also took him off of the ventilator because he was breathing well enough on his own. Praise God for He is good! Thanks to everyone for all the support and prayers you have sent my family’s way. The fight is Not over yet though, and my papa and family still have a long journey ahead of us. Please continue to pray fervently for my father to continue improving each and every day. I humbly ask you to please continue to share,and if able donate to the Go Fund Me page. God bless and love y’all! ❤️

02/06/2018 - ✝️ Tuesday Update: Papa is still unresponsive. His vitals are pretty stable and his heart rate has improved. He is on a couple antibiotics still for the pneumonia. He needs to start breathing better by himself, so he can get off the ventilator tubes. He is still off sedatives. He is currently on multiple different pain medications. We are not losing faith or hope and are praying constantly over him and reading him the Bible. I would like to continue to thank everyone again for the massive outpouring of love and support throughout the world for our father and family. Y’all are so amazing and also very generous. May God bless you. Words cannot express the amount of appreciation and love our family has for each and every one of you. Jesus please continue to watch over my father and family. Cleans my fathers body of any sickness, impurities, or cancers. Make him happy and healthy once again. Thank you Lord. Amen ❤️

02/05/2018 - Monday update!***My father Michael Chambers is still unconscious and not very responsive. Doctors have him off the sedatives to see if that will help but then his blood pressure rises pretty high. He is also on an antibiotic for pneumonia. They are taking him for another MRI soon. Please pray for him to start improving and showing responsiveness and for 100% healing. Pray for the medical staff to have wisdom and know what the best options are. My fathers semi-truck was picked up from the tow lot today, but when the driver started driving it down the road, the truck wouldn’t go more than 10mph and something was broke on it. So the driver dropped it off at the lot again, where it costs $180 per day. Tomorrow we’re expected to have another driver and mechanic come work on it and hopefully drive it back to buffalo. Side note from all of this negativity, I was able to find my mother, Jeanette Chambers, a 1 bedroom furnished church apartment that rents for low costs to people at the Cleveland clinic in our position. It’s also only 10 mins from the hospital. Thank God for letting there be an available room. My mom and family and myself are forever grateful for the outpouring of love through continual prayers, and sharing and donating to the Go Fund Me page. Love y’all. ❤️
