Jermaine Jacob's Recovery Fund

This is Miles Burcher heavily suggesting(making) Jermaine do this. No one plans to have heart surgery and then emergency lung surgery 48 hours later to remove a blood clot the size of a baseball, especially when you are 35 years old. Jermaine is going to school full time and working three part time jobs. He is to graduate in December from ODU with his Bachelors degree. Watching Jermaine stress over bills, expenses etc.  in addition to his recovery from these surgeries is heart breaking. Doctors are expecting recovery to take a minimum of 6 weeks or longer with several follow up visits to Duke on top of the expenses he has already incurred and credit card bills from that are on the way. He is staying here with Gary and I for a few weeks and we have meals etc covered. We / Jermaine need your help. We have estimated what bills are coming in, income loss and whats going to be incurred. Friends you have help me raise all kinds of money for charities over the years I / we need you know to rise to the occasion once again. We are not talking a lot of money but to this young man its massive. Friends, family, FGC community, we greatly appreciate your support.
