Jona was diagnosed with breast cancer and is due to have double mastectomy surgery on August 30th, 2018.
I'm posting this on his family's behalf for a few reasons. As my mom and I were previous cancer survivors, it can be overwhelming when you are given the news that you have cancer. Suddenly life and priorities are needing re-prioritizing like life wasn't already busy enough let alone a family of 7 like Jonas. All the unknown tasks like insurance, scheduling, pre-op, post-op, prepayments, follow-up visits and daily living adjustments can be overwhelming and expensive. We rely on the community like family and friends for support until we're back on our feet. The administration process takes an army!
How can you help stand with Jona?
Jona's medical insurance is only taking him so far and were asking for you to stand with us and provide the financial support to meet the needs where the insurance lacks. Your donation will go towards his pre/post operation expenses until he is able to be back on his feet and back on budget.
Other alternative donation options.
Facebook Messenger: If you have Jona on Facebook messenger, you can send the donation directly to him.
Checks: If you prefer to send a check, please message me for Jona’s mailing address. Either through this app or through Facebook. If you already have my contact info, please text.
If you're unable to support financially, we ask you keep Jona and his family in your thoughts and prayers during this time. Please forward this to your social media. We will post updates along the way.
For those that are local to Arizona, we plan to have a post-recovery BBQ when it's not so hot and we can have the kids out and enjoy life and fellowship.
