Buckeye's Battle: Support Jim Pearl

Cancer sucks.

It sneaks in and attempts to steal joy and disrupt the spirit. It does not discriminate by age, color, or personality, and it impacts so many of us, directly or indirectly.

But when cancer invades a young husband. A father of three. An Ohio State Buckeye, who has built a reputation of strong friendship, constant generosity, humor, and humility in the manner that Jim Pearl has, we, as appreciative members of his circle, are called to think, feel, and behave in the manner that he would for so many of us. We must help.

Jim and his wife, Beth, and children, Brandon, Madi, and Kaitlyn, have reluctantly and humbly agreed to allow us to set up this GoFundMe page in order to aid in this fight. We are asking for your assistance in easing the burden on Jim and his family as they continue to lace up the gloves daily and knock this disease to the canvas.

We understand that those who know Jimmy are familiar with his kindness and zest for perseverance. For those of you who do not know Jimmy, please trust that you are connected in some way to a great man who could use your compassion, to whatever extent you can. If you can, please give generously. Any level of donation will be accepted and appreciated. We ask that you share this page with others as well, so we can expand the opportunity to help this great man and great family who we love dearly.

With much love and gratitude,

The extended friends/family of Jim Pearl
