Jonathan's Medical Expenses

Donation protected
Hi, my name is Sarah Rinzler, and I'm starting this fundraiser for my dad, Jonathan.  

Most of you visiting this fundraising page likely already know my dad's story, but I'll provide background here for those who don't: Jonathan visited his doctor last August because of abdominal pain and an increasingly diminished appetite. That same month, he was diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer. He was given three to four months to live. Since then, he has soldiered through many rounds of chemotherapy but often had allergic reactions. As we reach the one-year mark from his diagnosis, there are no more treatment options available; Jonathan is making end-of-life plans.

I can’t imagine a time when the mundane, such as paying bills, would feel less important; regardless, part of the reality of battling prolonged illness is facing a challenging financial situation. My parents, sister, and I appreciate any financial support you can provide — and thank you all for everything you have already done to help our family.

With love,
