This Firefighter Needs Our Help

Jeff Julian has spent his entire life as a Firefighter for Sutter Fire Dept., Yuba City Fire Dept., Marysville Fire Dept.  as well as the organizer and long time instructor for the Yuba College Fire Academy. He recently began traveling across the USA training thousands of firefighters in alternative fuel firefighting. through NAFTC.  Sadly, long term exposure to the toxic by-products of firefighting are most likely the cause of his fight for life,  which he is heartbreakingly going to lose in the near future.  Chief Julian is enduring the nightmare of three forms of cancer that are now trying to take this hero's life way sooner than any of us expected or can even bear to think of.  He is suffering from Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia, Melanoma  skin cancer and Glioblastoma brain cancer all at the same time!  He is bravely fighting every second to remain strong for those  around him and has not lost his awesome sense of humor we all know and love.
This courageous hero has risked his life for others and now he needs our help to make his final days a little better. 
Jeff is is experiencing weakness on one side of his body and can no longer safely tackle the stairs leading into or out of his home. He has taken several falls and leaving home is becoming unsafe and impossible for he and his wife Kerri to manage. Due to several circumstances, a
ramp is not an option.  We are hoping to raise the funds to install an electric lift to his entry stairs so that he could leave his home to visit the family , friends and places that mean the world to him right now. In the incredible event that we would collect funds exceeding this goal, the remainder will go directly to pay the mounting medical costs for Jeff's care. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping make this happen for him.
