Jason "JV" VanderVossen is not only my Sous Chef, but one of my closest personal friends.  We have worked together in several restaurants over the years.  The other day he went into the hospital with flu-like symptoms, and has been diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. I am setting up this page for friends, family, and strangers to help JV and his family through this tough time by taking some financial worry off of them.  He does not have health insurance, and will be hospitalized for some time.  If there's anything you can give, it would be greatly appreciated. And please, spread the word and love to your friends and family, as well.  Also, the more prayers, thoughts, good vibes, and whatever you choose to send his direction to help him through this would be huge!

I love this boy... Man.. Like no other - from birth rsally. He has a gift and hes going to kick cancer's *ss so that he can continue sharing his talent with the world. I remember taking him to his first professional kitcchen visit at The Four Seasons in Philly so long ago. Chef says "Are you serious about a career in this industry?" He stood up straight and tall and said " Yes Chef!" And hes committed himself since. No one is prouder of him than me. The love and support shown here is incredible. If you dont know him I promise - you are supporting a truly good Man. I dont know all of you but I love you for your support --- Jason's Aunt Trish

JV is the one who taught me how to love, and he inspires me every day. Even though he has been through so much hardship, he still cares more about the people around him than he cares about himself. He is truly selfless. It has been amazing to see the outpouring of love and support from all of you. Thank you so much!
