Jacob Hantla's Cancer Medical Fund

Some of you may know that my brother in law, Jacob, was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of lymphoma this last week. Many of you may be familiar with their son, David, who has been fighting leukemia for 5.5 years, and is currently in remission after receiving CAR-t therapy last July. Life for them was starting to return to normal, or as close to normal as possible after a child has had cancer, and now Jacob has been diagnosed with cancer as well, a very aggressive, high-grade lymphoma. Kiki, my sister and Jacob’s wife, has been primarily staying at home taking care of David’s post-cancer cares and homeschooling their three kids. Jacob has been the family’s financial provider. He is now facing a long road of chemo (which starts today) and other cancer treatments and his family will have much decreased to no income to cover medical expenses and basic necessities for the family. Because of his past medical history, Jacob was never able to qualify for any disability insurance. Lots of small gifts can add up and really help the Hantlas not have to worry about finances through these challenges coming right on the heels of more than 5 years of leukemia challenges.

We have had so many people ask how they can support the Hantlas, and the greatest tangible way to support and love them would be to give financially and pray continuously. If you would be willing to help support the Hantlas financially, there are three ways you could do so.

1. Give directly to Jacob and Kiki by using the cash app/PayPal/Apple Pay. This is the easiest and most efficient way to give. If you don’t already have the cash app and would like to give this way, download the “cash app” and use this code “PXSJSVW” and both you and the Hantlas with each get $5 (in addition to what you give). Their ca$htag is $hantla. Or you can send money through PayPal to [email redacted] or ApplePay [email redacted]. With these methods 100% of the gift goes directly to Jacob and Kiki.

2. Give to the Hantlas through their church, Grace Bible Church, using this link: https://www.gbcaz.org/support-hantlas-grace-bible-church/
Please be sure to select, “benevolence - Hantla” as the designation so that the church knows to put apply the money toward Hantlas’ expenses. This could be tax deductible. Read that page to find out details.

3. Give using GoFundMe, GoFundMe does charge a 2.9% credit card processing fee and $.30 per donation.

Thank you for your prayers and your support.
