Johnny's Journey

Many of our friends know  by now that my brother Johnny has throat cancer. Last summer he noticed a lump in his neck just after moving to a bigger, newer house. Last August the Dr told him he had cancer. He explained that would need all of his teeth removed because the radiation would destroy them. Then he had surgery in September to remove the cancer that they could get. They gave him a feeding tube and chemo port. Shortly after radiation and chemo began he had to stop working. He got very sick and lost too much weight to work so they put him on disablity. After countless phone calls and paper work he has still yet to receive any disability money and no idea when he can return to work.
So now we're here today. He has exhausted all his savings and credit cards trying to stay afloat. Too proud to ask for help. I know this is hard to imagine since as anyone that knows him knows he would give you the shirt off his back. I'm sure many of you reading this know he has a hard time saying no to anyone that needs help.
So now it's time for him to get help. He would never ask himself but he did give me permission to ask for him. He's my brother, my first friend, and he needs help. 
All funds will go to help with his past bills, current bills and the $15k (so far) in medical bills. His treatment isn't even finished yet. If everyone reading this could even give $10 imagine how much it could help.
Thank you in advance for any contributions you can spare. God Bless.  Tamy
