Stomach cancer

John has been struggling with stomach pains for the past couple years and his doctor just couldn't figure out how a 200-lb. man was losing so much weight so fast. Undergoing test upon test, he was finally diagnosed with stage 3 stomach cancer back in July. He now weighs 135 lbs. Once diagnosed, he has been on a rigorous chemo plan. John is on chemo 24 hours a day for 5 days straight, off for 3 weeks. he needs 3 of these treatments and is about to go onto his last one before surgery. As you can imagine, this sort of treatment wears you out. Yet, John, the Store Manager at Biglots, is a very dedicated employee and is working though all of this as much as possible to support his family of 4. With the last round of chemo and surgery just around the corner in January, the treatment is making it extremely difficult for John to work anymore than 2 hours a day. Insurance only covers so much and the bills and expenses keep piling up. 

Would you please consider donating to this hard-working individual and pray for his healing as he is battling stomach cancer and still trying to provide for his family? Any amount, big or small would be very much appreciated.
