Jay's Emergency Medical Fund

As many of you know, our dear friend Jay is battling Stage 4 colon cancer. After countless exhausting chemotherapy treatments, Jay was rushed to the hospital today (7/7/17) for emergency surgery to remove part of his colon. This is a very serious and invasive surgery that will keep Jay bedridden for the forseeable future. 

The first GoFundMe campaign we had for Jay was very successful, but this surgery will set him back into more debt. His mom, Kelly, has been traveling back and forth from Illinois to take care of him, and has had to take many days off work. Jay himself cannot work because of the pain he is suffering.

If you could find it in your heart to donate to Jay, all of us in his life would be eternally greatful. Since Jay and I became best friends years ago, he has helped me out in more situations than I can count. When my livelihood was in jeopardy, he pulled through for me. Now I have to pull through for him. Please donate, and please pray to your God for my Jay. Thank you.
