Help Jeromie Riley beat cancer for the 2nd time!!


We were informed that Jeromies' cancer never went away. The testicular cancer is gone, but it went into his lymphnodes. He has to have surgery again! This time they will be removing all the lymphnodes from his chest down to his groin. The cancer hasn't left the lymphnodes yet so we're hoping no other organs will be affected. Please if your able to donate, anything is something. We wont have short term disability this time, so zero income will be coming in. He was told that recovering from this surgery is worse than open heart surgery. He will be hospital for atleast 4 days. Please pray for us, we need all the prayers we can get from anyone anywhere,
Sent with Love,
Shawna and Jeromie Riley 

In February 2020 my husband (Jeromie/Dad) was involved in a work accident at no fault of his own. He was diagnosed with chemical pneumonia. He had constant follow up appts and was finally deemed cleared a few weeks later. His left side was hurting  really bad. I told him he probably had a hernia from coughing so hard. March 4th 2020 he goes to the emergency room for the pain. He calls me and tells me he has cancer!!! I was like " No you have a hernia, where did cancer come from?"

March 24th 2020 he had the tumor removed and it was verified. He has stage 3A almost 3B testicular cancer. I'm a stay at home mom and he was the one working full time. He is currently going through chemotherapy and has 1 1/2 rounds of chemo to go. Hopefully that will put his cancer into remission. We have a small amount of short term disability coming in but it's only 20% of his base pay. If his cancer isn't in remission and he needs more chemotherapy we 100% wont make it financially. We're hanging on by a thread as it is. 

Because of everything my husband has gone through were now in a financial crisis. Everything snowballed. Both of our credit cards are maxed out, our car payments are on deferment and are barely scraping by to pay our mortgage. I dont know If what I asked for is considered greedy, but I know it still wont cover everything we've lost. 

My husband has served our country proud for 22yrs in the Navy. Anything, anyone can afford to donate is appreciated beyond belief! Thank You for reading about my husband and the difficult medical problems he has
