Help Jack's Bone Marrow Transplant!

My best friend Jack Miller has been my inspiration and greatest advocate while I currently battle pancreatic cancer. Now I want to return the favor and help Jack battle his bone cancer without the financial stress his months of treatment will cause.

Jack’s Myelofibrosis causes all the marrow in his bones to turn to scar tissue, and as a result the marrow no longer makes any blood. He currently is hospitalized at the Cleveland Clinic after a very scary week where his immune system plummeted and we nearly lost him. After a promising medical trial had to be halted because of other organ damage, Jack is now in need of a bone marrow transplant sooner than initially planned. If this transplant goes smoothly, he will be staying there for nearly 2 months quarantined to avoid outside infections and will likely not feel human for 6 months. I envy his strength to be able to endure what he is about to endure.

Jack Miller is the most selfless and humble man I know. Him and his wife, Carloyn, have celebrated more than 26 years of marriage and have that type of relationship that everyone wishes they had. Jack’s two daughters are smart and gorgeous…obviously inheriting their genes mostly from their mother…and they have been his motivation to fight for his life right now. He’s also the best friend a person can ask for — always offering his help with my cancer while fiercely battling bone cancer himself. Now the man who normally takes care of everyone else needs your help.

Please donate now to help Jack and his family with his immediate transplant expenses and future treatment plans. Let’s help Jack recuperate for the next 6 months and help his family be able to afford time to spend with him while he receives his bone marrow transplant and fights to come home. Any amount will help with their expenses. Then, help spread the message and send this to your friends and family to help one of the greatest and most deserving men I know on the planet.

I want to thank everyone for helping me raise money for battling pancreatic cancer on my gofundme account back in January. It made all of the difference in the world to have money for my second/third opinions and to be able to afford having Courtney by my side several hours away from home. Please, find the generosity to help my friend afford treatment without the financial stresses of day to day life.
