For Our Brother.

My name is Travis Atwood, and I'll be the first to say that I hate asking for help, and I am positive my Brother wouldn't want me to ask everyone for assistance, but we had to do....something.  My Brother Derek is 37 married with two kids ages 13 & 10.  He has been diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer on his right knee called Chondrosarcoma.  It's slow-growing cancer which is great news, but he had to have surgery to remove the mass and have it sent to pathology for more tests.  This request for help is simple, my brother is a carpenter and will be off work for 4 to 8 weeks unable to provide for his family as his employer doesn't provide PTO/Sick Leave.  Anything that can be spared to help pay for normal day to day expenses and the medical costs would be greatly appreciated. 

Also, I will post proof of giving ALL  that is donated to him and his family.

Thank you!
