Help Support Jerrin Wiley

Our family has joined together to help raise funds for my brother. About a month ago he was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. He had a large tumor attached to his heart. They ended up having to break his sternum and cut out part of the pericardial sac which surrounds the heart, in order to remove the tumor. They then sent him home to recover. Not too long after that he was readmitted to the hospital with fluid build up on his heart. They had to do a pericardial window to relieve  the pressure. He also had to have a liter and a half of fluid removed from his lung. He had to have a chest tube inserted. While he was in the hospital things looked a little scary but God intervened and did one miracle after another, allowing him to be released from the hospital and continue his recovery at home.
He is now entering the next phase, which is radiation. He will have to have radiation 5 days a week for a total of 6 weeks. As I'm sure you can imagine, Jerrin has already and will continue to amass a great deal of medical debt just in the short while he's been going through this ordeal. He hasn't been one to sit at home and feel sorry for himself and say the debt's just too overwhelming for him. Instead he is carrying a full load at school and will be working full time while undergoing radiation. He is a PreMed Honors Student at UofH and has carried a 3.9 GPA. We are all very proud of him and how he's conducted himself, with such faith and positivity in this hard time. We completely understand if you are unable to donate, but for those of you that can, it would be much appreciated. Jerrin is not just sitting by and letting people hand him money. He is working while he undergoes radiation. Money and bills are the last things Jerrin needs to worry about during this time. We know any donation would be very much appreciated to help pay down his out of pocket expense, and lessen his stress while he focuses on getting better. Thank you for joining with our family in helping Jerrin.
