Help Hoonie fight cancer

Donation protected
Pictured above is Hoonie (John).  At 77 years old, he climbed a ladder early one morning and strung up these heart felt letters for his wife to see before she left for work. No special occasion, no specific reason. Just because he loves her. Hoonie is my stepdad, but more than that, he is one the most loving, kind-hearted, gentle beings God has created. He dedicates every moment of his life to others and never asks for a thing in return.  To everyone he meets, he brings a smile to their face, he's quick with a joke and never turns away a soul in need. I can't put into words how special he is and how much he means to me, my siblings, his darling grandchildren, my mom and to the many others he has greatly influenced. The reason for this account is to humbly request help in raising money for his cancer treatment. With help, he will receive Provenge, a cellular immunotherapy which will use Hoonie's own blood cells to stimulate his immune system to fight his metastatic bone cancer. He will need 3 treatments of Provenge, which comes with a copay of $22,000 per treatment. With your help, he can receive this therapy and live to see his oldest grandbabies begin their adult lives and youngest grandbaby, his BFF since her birth, graduate high school and go off to college. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. Anything helps and is greatly appreciated.
