Helping a Local 1 Plumber Brother in serious need.

Miro Bajlo, a Local 1 Plumber member since 2014, was unfortunately just diagnosed with STAGE 3 HODGKIN'S LYMPHOMA. He was just working for Par Plumbing when he received this horrific news.  Miro began his very first round of chemotherapy to treat his cancer this week. Miro is 30 years of age and still in his Apprenticeship with Local 1. He and his wife have a 1-year old baby at home and his family is desperately trying to make ends meet. They have a very long and trying road ahead of them. I just had the pleasure of meeting Miro for the very first time this past Summer. I was extremely impressed with him. I liked him a lot. He's a fantastic guy, phenomenal father, excellent husband, and great friend to many people.  He reached out to me privately to let me know about his tough road ahead. He was actually too proud to ask me for help. This is the kind of person that I love to help. I begged him for his permission to allow me to set up a Gofundme campaign to benefit his family during this extreme time of need. Please consider a donation to help out a fellow Local 1 Union family in serious need. This is the Holiday season. It's the perfect time to give to someone less fortunate than you. Please do the right thing here for this young family. Thank you.
