Donate to help a Dad of 5 in His Cancer Battle

Donation protected
Hey there, I'm Garrett Mendelsohn. Today, I want to tell you about a dear friend, a business partner, but most importantly, a fighter. Last winter, he was diagnosed with bone cancer and since then, his life has been one roller coaster of a ride. And not the fun kind.

His days and nights are spent confined to his bed, his body waging a war against cancer, leaving him with little energy for anything else. As if that's not challenging enough, he has a massive tumor on his chest wall, precariously close to his heart. It used to send his heart racing up to 170 beats per minute in his sleep before the doctors got it under control with medication.

Still, his battle isn't over. It's tough, it's relentless, and sometimes it feels like it's not going as well as we'd hope. But there's one thing I know for sure - he's not backing down.

Despite his own troubles, he's still there for his family. His wife continues to work while he takes care of their five beautiful kids, some of whom are still pretty young. He's their superhero, always putting on a brave face, making sure they feel loved and secure. But even superheroes need a helping hand.

So, I'm reaching out to you today. Let's rally behind my incredible friend. He's given his all to this battle and to his family, and now it's our turn to step up. Your kindness and generosity, whether big or small, will lighten his load and help him to continue this fight.

So, let's band together, let's show him that he's not alone in this. Thank you in advance for your love and support, it means more than you know. Let's do this!
