Help John's Girls After His Passing

A little over a year ago, my cousin, John Steigerwald, was diagnosed with stage 4 renal cancer. He lives in Winterville, NC, and he's had a very tough year of hospital visits, ill-health, operations, stress and worry. Through all that, though, his wife, Angie, has stood by his side and tried to make the best of a terrible situation, while caring for their two young daughters, Emilee and Krystina.

Though holding out every hope for recovery, John admits that his prognosis is not good. He's suffered severe and painful symptoms, and can only walk with the help of cane now. He had to quit his hourly wage job, and the family is currently bravely making do on John's disability income and Angie's income from her hourly wage job. It's becoming increasingly tough to support their family of four and to tend to John's healthcare.

Recently, Angie announced to us, her extended family, that she was seeking a second job to help pay for groceries, utilities, and clothing for the kids. We, of course, are doing everything we can to ensure she doesn't have to. And we need your help.

We intend to raise $20,000 to help Angie stay home with John and the kids as much as possible during this trying time.

Won't you help us reach our goal by donating $25 or more, and by sharing this fundraising campaign via Facebook, Twitter, and email with as many friends as possible?

This is a real and immediate need, and any donation will have a positive impact. Please feel free to contact me directly if you have questions or want to verify the legitimacy of this campaign. I'd be more than happy to speak with you.

Many thanks,

Jason Johnson
