Jones Family Medical Fund

April '19:
Hello Friends and Family:

In recent days we have been in conversation with the Jones family and with great appreciation for your past generosity and kindness  we humbly reach out to you again for financial support. The family is dependent on  Ellen's single income. As with most insurances each year restarts their max out-of pocket of $10,000. This year promises continued advancement in Dave's progress against cancer. Tomorrow April 4th, Dave is preparing for surgery to remove the tumors located in his intestines. As Ellen shared on their caring bridge account :, "Doctors are very encouraged that surgery will prolong life with good quality on a maintenance chemo therapy post operative." Please consider supporting their family in 2019!

"If you know the Jones family, then you have probably received a meal when you needed one or a homeade baby blanket when you had your newest baby. Ellen may have taught your child in Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, covered a shift for you at the hospital, listened to you when you had a bad day or helped you clean out or organize a room that left you feeling overwhelmed. Dave may have picked up or driven your child home from (name any sport) or given you advice on (name any sport). You may have sat by Dave and Ellen under the Friday night lights of St. James football or at a soccer game, swim meet, or orchestra concert. If your kids have been lucky enough to know one of the five Jones kids then,  I have no doubt you have carpooled with them or spent time in their lovely, faith-filled home.

If you know the Jones family, you know what a close knit family they are. They have always been there to lend a hand to anyone in their community and now they need a hand from their community.

In October of this year, Dave was diagnosed with Stage IV colon cancer and Stage II rectal cancer. Currently he is undergoing extensive chemotherapy and they have a long, tough road ahead of them.  We decided to set up this Go Fund Me page to help them handle the financial needs that have overwhelmed their single income. Please consider joining us in financially blessing the Jones family as we join them in prayer as they focus on the future ahead."
