John Stabb "Boycott" Cancer Fund
Most people know John as the legendary singer for the Punk Rock Band, Government Issue, from Washington DC.
On Wednesday, January 20th, after feeling nauseous
the night before/contemplating cancelling his History Repeated show, John Stabb went to the ER having severe pain in his stomach. He was released from the hospital two days later. After a week at home, John went back to the ER on Friday January 29th for an emergency operation.
After a week of recovery in the hospital, on Saturday February 6th, John was diagnosed with malignant stomach cancer in addition to having two intestinal tumors removed through his surgery the week before.
John's soul mate, Mina, has been by his side day and night (with short trips home to take care of their pets and to wash clothes).
Mina's boss has been incredibly supportive to allow Mina the time off from work in order to take care of John during this critical time and to help him through the stages of cancer treatment. However, there is a financial toll that John and Mina face of unpaid leave of absence from their jobs under the FMLA.
In order to assist John and Mina during this journey, this fund has been set up to assist in life expenses while John heals and goes through his cancer treatment.
I am setting this fund up for Mina and John. Mina was not sure how this works and I wanted to do something to relieve her of the financial worries on top of all of the emotional worries she is going through. They will have sole access to these funds to help pay for their living expenses during this tramatic time. Additionally, funds will be used to assist in John's cancer treatment and healing expenses. Mina is focusing on taking care of John and when she is able to update, she will. Please follow her and her posts on Facebook.
I know both John and Mina thank all of you for your consideration for any amount of help you can provide. Most of all, they thank you for your love and support.
Here are some updates from Mina:
Today, we received the GI skateboard that was signed by GBH and auctioned off by William to help support John. Kathy made the winning bid and sent it to us as a wedding gift. Your card and gift touched us so much, Kathy! Love you!
John's hair started falling out in clumps on the third day of chemo. "Take it off." And, we did it together.
Love goes to the limit.
John received a wonderful teddy bear from none other than the biggest "baddest" bear out there - Pete Moffett
and from today: CAUTION: LIVE WIRE
As we near the completion of John's final course of chemo and whatever truth it has to reveal, our resolve could not be any stronger or clearer than it is this morning. He is not ready to lay down. Today, I will be standing up and fighting for him to be able to receive immunotherapy in the hospital if the chemo doesn't work, a treatment not offered there but available to us through other means. Receiving all power you have to send. It begins now.
