Help Team Jon And Family Beat Leukemia

My name is Jonathan Godlewski. In April of 2019 I was diagnosed with CML, a pretty rare version of Leukemia.  Over the summer I had some pretty bad complications with my blood cells and long story short, late August I went into blast crisis. It has been really rough since then, I almost died many times and I am still a ways from getting out of the woods. I was in between the hospital and a family house in Peoria all September but at the end of September I got really bad again and was stuck in the same room for 75 days. I was recently out for a week or two, still in a Peoria place but at the nice Ronald McDonald House. I'm recently back in the hospital for at least a couple months and after that ill be going to St Jude in Memphis for around another 4 months trying to get a bone marrow transplant. I'm so so so thankful we were able to find a couple donors that were a match to me. Me and my dad were so happy we were crying when we found out.

My dad has been there right next to me the whole way, we both haven't been home for at least 6 months now. My dad lost all of the jobs he had and him being the one who brings in the most money means we haven't been able to pay bills. I'll be super blunt here, we need help, like bad. If you have anything it would really help, I know people say it isn't but it really is my fault we haven't been able to pay bills the last couple months. If it wasn't for my cancer we would be in a way better place. I want to help my family, anyway I can. Donate anything you can but please don't put yourself out. Thank you for even the thoughts and prayers! Much love to everyone <3.
