Help Jess Beat Brain Cancer!

My wife, the love of my life, Jessica Nhem was given a stage 4 brain cancer diagnosis (known as Glioblastoma) on Oct 8th, 2020. This is the most aggressive type of cancer that starts within the brain. It’s prognosis is very bleak, with a median life expectancy of just under a year. This is an incurable illness, and is very difficult to treat. At 37, she is my high school sweetheart and a mother of three. We have a daughter named Trinity, who is freshman in college. Our middle son Johnathan, is a junior in high school. Our youngest is a sweet little boy named Tatum, who recently turned 3 years old. Tatum himself, also received a medical diagnosis back in April, of ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder). Yes, our family has been hit pretty hard with our worlds completely turned upside-down. Imagine enjoying your children, working a normal job, healthy & happy as can be... and in an instant, it all comes to a screeching halt. So in asking for donations, the money will be used to pay for medical expenses that include chemotherapy, radiation treatments, rehab for both short & longterm recovery, medications, and bills that insurance simply will not cover. Please please please find it in your heart to donate. I/we understand it is YOUR hard earned money, so please know that anything truly helps, and is genuinely appreciated. My dear Jess is a beautiful soul, who can and has made friends with just about everybody she’s come in contact with. Her smile is warm. Her laughter is contagious. And her love is loyal. She is the strongest person I know. She will also fight this cancer with every bit of sass. We will update regularly of Jess’ journey, along with the lives of our children. Thank you all so much for your love, care, prayers, & support. We believe miracles do happen, and have all faith in God. His plans are above all. Thank you for taking the time to read this. Please trust that every penny raised, will go towards this “fight”, along with future plans of helping other families who may also become effected by this horrible cancer. If you are unable to donate, please SHARE this GoFundMe as we believe something even greater will come out of this. ❤️
