Help father of 6 recover from cancer

John Rhoades is a man most would describe as a person who lends a helping hand to anyone who needs it. He’s a father of 6 ranging from 11 months to 26 years old and a dedicated bread winner to his family he adores. That is up until this year in January when he was diagnosed with Extensive Small Cell Lung Cancer, and unable to provide for his growing family. Those that don’t know should know that he was and hopes to continue to be a very hard worker who rarely, if at all, missed a chance to go to work and support his children. Even up to the weeks of his diagnosis with his Oncologists written order to not work due to his chemotherapy treatment that is needed and still ongoing to battle the cancer within, he continued to work regardless of how he felt. Since Chemotherapy at the beginning of 2020 along with radiation treatment throughout the year he has been out of work and is in need of financial help to provide the security his family needs and he had always provided. Contributing anything will be greatly appreciated as it will go towards medical bills that are in collections, vehicle payments that are needed to get to treatment, ongoing chemotherapy treatment bills, the CT, PET and MRI scans needed to conclude that treatments are working, as well as some for breathing room for a chance to concentrate and relax to gain his heaIth back efficiently. I have told him that all of this is God’s way to rebuild him into a much healthier man than what he was before and he’s staying positive knowing there’s a purpose. Thank you in advance for your prayers as well as donation’s.
