Praying for a Miracle

Our friend and brother Jon Kauffmann needs
our help. Jon has been a firefighter on the
Minneapolis/St. Paul Airport Fire Department
for almost ten years. On February 27th, 2020,
he was diagnosed with a very aggressive form
of occupational brain cancer, Glioblastoma.
After the diagnosis, Jon sought treatment at
the Mayo Clinic and immediately started daily
radiation treatment with little to no success in
slowing the growth of the tumor. He then tried
a round of chemotherapy with little to no
positive outcomes.
Jon has left a huge hole in the heart of our fire
department. His bright smile and positive
attitude warmed the room. His presence is
sadly missed.
Jon has been married for two years to his wife
Neeley. Neeley cares for Jon while continuing
her career as a high school counselor.
Jon’s occupational cancer claim was denied by
workers comp and now the battle continues in court to get his lost wages and medical
expenses covered. He needs your financial help to get through these difficult times.
