This is my Dad, Jim. We just learned that he has pancreatic cancer that has also spread to his liver. We are asking for help to bring our Dad back home to Pennsylvania be close to his children, grandchildren, and extended family.
On June 26th of this year, Jim's son (my brother) died suddenly in his sleep. We were all devastated. When Jim flew East for the funeral, we all noticed he was in a lot of pain and did not look well. We encouraged him to go the the ER when he returned home.Only a week after losing his son, he received this shocking news about his health.
Having just lost a family member, you can imagine how crushing this news is. However, Jim is prepared to work hard and fight for his life. Jim's greatest desire now, is to move back to Pennsylvania, near Philadelphia, to be close to his remaining family while he receives the best possible treatments for his cancer.
Jim was a dedicated small business owner who put all he had to keep his business afloat during these tough economic times. Unfortunately he lost the business and now has no way to fund his move to Pennsylvania. He has only medicare to cover medical costs. We are so grateful to any friends, loved ones, and individuals inspired to help by making a donation. Your contribution will cover moving and travel costs, help Jim and his wife to find an apartment near his family, and help to cover the numerous medical bills and treatments that will not be fully covered by health insurance. No donation is too small and love and prayers are also important and priceless donations!
Thank you, and blessings to you from the fullness of our hearts.
