Help John fight his Rare Cancer

John has been diagnosed with a rare form of sarcoma cancer.  He has Ewings Sarcoma which is rare for a 36-year-old man to have.  John is a single father raising his two daughters aged 14 and 12.  He is starting extreme-aggressive chemotherapy that will last for 3 months and then will have surgery to remove any remnants of the cancer.  He will then have 4 more months of chemotherapy.

John is a Firefighter and is a first responder in many situations.  He is dedicated to saving the lives of others.  He has not been able to work due to the pain since January.  At first, the Doctor thought the pain was just an injury to the cartilage near his rib from sneezing.  After a few weeks of the pain not going away, the Doctor did a CT Scan.  The CT showed a mass in his rib area.  A PET Scan and biopsy confirmed that he has the Ewings Sarcoma.

The expense of the chemotherapy and surgery will be high.  John has used all his sick days and will have no income coming in to meet his monthly mortgage payments and other household expenses or medical expenses.

I am asking if you can help save this man's life so he can get back to saving others lives.  Any amount large or small will help reach the goal and is wholeheartedly appreciated.  Thank you so much in advance.
