Ian's Cancer Fund

This past year has been the toughest year Ian has ever gone through. Last January he lost his best friend Ryan at age 29 due to a heart attack. After a couple months of feeling some lower back pain and a lump showing up on Ian's neck, he decided to go to the doctor. They ran some tests and his white blood cells were very low. He was later diagnosed with testicular cancer. He has gone through surgeries, lots of testing and scans, hematoma, and pure fear for his life. He has completed 4 treatments of chemo. We are hoping and praying that will put the cancer in remission, but he may have to endure more chemo and possibly surgery. As many of you well know, chemo is not a walk in the park. He has felt very ill through all of this and has not been able to work for weeks. Not only is he fighting for his life, he is also fighting to keep a roof over his head and paying for all other expenses. We need help supporting him financially these next couple months so he does not lose everything he has.


For those of you who don't know Ian personally, I have never met anyone who cares and loves for animals more than he does. He has 2 dogs that are very, very special to him. Ian is a son, brother, and great friend to many. He has a big heart and an entrepreneur mindset. It is so hard to see him go through this, especially being so young (30).

Again, this is the scariest thing he and our family has ever had to go through. Medical bills, prescriptions, rent, daily living, animal bills, and car payments are really starting to stack up for him.  Positive thinking and mental health can play such a large role in overcoming cancer, please help put some of these worries at ease for Ian. Any contribution you can make to Ian means so much to him and our family. Contributions will go directly to him. Please continue to pray for him and his healing. 

Thank you so much for your generosity and love! God bless
