Dear friends, family, and community members,
Our beloved Jeff Small, a best friend, loving husband and father of 3, has been diagnosed with inoperable stage 4 gastric cancer. The impact of this unexpected diagnosis on our family is beyond words. We’re deeply humbled by the outpouring of love & many requests we’ve received asking how you can support us. This is why we write to you today.
We’ll be frank; we’re under significant unexpected financial strain due to the fact Jeff has been unable to work, and our hope is to give Jeff any added peace of mind in the days and weeks ahead. To date, we have paid $7,000 for additional testing in hopes he may qualify for a clinical trial, incurred the cost of flying family home to help with his care and various alternative treatments.
We appreciate that many of you may be facing challenges & financial burdens as well. Any amount you can contribute, no matter how small, will make a difference.
Please consider sharing our GoFundMe campaign with others in your circle. Wider reach will increase the odds of meeting our fundraising goal. Your support & generosity will serve as a source of strength and hope during this difficult time.
From the bottom of our hearts, we express our deepest gratitude for your love, prayers, deliveries of food, gift cards & positive support.
Thank you again for helping us to provide our lovely Jeff with the care and peace he deserves while facing this disease.
With our heartfelt appreciation,
Kim, Sam, Connor and Sophie Small
