Kill John's Cancer with Kindness!

We are raising money to raise money for a dear friend living in Virginia Beach. John Smith and his two little boys. He is an astonishing 28 year old that is an outstandingly devoted father to two little boys that are 8 and 2 years old. This man is someone who has served two tours in the Middle East and has sacrificed a great deal of his time protecting our country and now he needs our help. At the beginning of February 2017, John was diagnosed with a meningioma, which is a tumor that grows on the meninges of the brain. 97-99% of the time, these tumors are benign. This tumor had grown to a size that created debilitating which meant he had to have it removed immediately. At the end of February 2017, he underwent a serious brain surgery to remove the tumor and when it was removed, the doctor sent it off for more testing. Almost a week after the tumor removal, him and his family were hit with devastating news. John is one of the unlucky victims that fell into the 1-3% of those that has a cancerous meningioma. On Tuesday, March 07, 2017, he was diagnosed with a Sarcoma of the brain. This is a very rare and very aggressive form of cancer to have, especially of the brain. Costs:His doctors are working hard to create the best treatment plans but they are also very costly. Regrettably, the company John works for does not offer any disability benefits. The insurance he has is unfortunately only covering a small portion of the medical bills that he is rapidly accruing with the surgeries, office visits, medications, physical therapy and other treatments he is receiving to beat this. How you can help:John is unable to work due to the substantial side effects of the therapy and medical treatments he is and will be going through. So if you could, please dig deep into your heart and donate whatever you can to help this family to beat John's cancer and relieve his worries of the financial burdens they have become faced with would be a tremendous help and greatly appreciated.#KillJohn'sCancerWithKindness
