As many of you know, our dear friend Jerry was diagnosed with carcinoid cancer in March of 2017. You may remember he had a very tough heart surgery last spring. The cancer has spread and now attacked the other 2 heart values. Fortunately he has found a heart surgeon at Mayo in Rochester Minnesota. The group there understands the connection of his specific cancer and the heart. If there are no complications they will be in Rochester for a minimum of 2 weeks, but as we know from their last experience that could easily be longer.
Many of you have asked what you can do to help. If the surgery was in Macon, we could take food to their house. Since they will be away, we would like to take up a little collection to help with meals while they are so far from home.
As a true, ol' fashion southern gentlemen, Jerry would graciously accept a meal being brought, but would hesitate to take any monetary contributions. Therefore, we would LOVE to SURPRISE them with a love offering to take the place of meals that we would traditionally take to the house.
We would like to present them with the funds on Saturday, November 17th at their family Thanksgiving get together. However we will leave the page open throughout their stay in Rochester.
Thank you all for your love and support. Please look to Jerry's Caring Bridge page for updates from Brenda. As always your prayers are so very appreciated.
