Jerry's Recoop and Recovery

This is my brother, Jerry John.  My sister and I are the only family support he has.  He has fallen on pretty bad luck the last few months and as a result has suffered from depression.  In the midst of his unemployment he had a stroke and was taken to VVMC for treatment.  His insurance situation was precarious but now qualifies for AHCCCS.  Jerry John is financially busted.  He is behind on all bills due to unemployment and now he will not be able to work for an undetermined amount of time.  He was supposed to start a new job last Thursday but due to his stroke he could not fulfill that obligation.

I struggled with starting this go fund me page because I feel like my sister and I should pull up the slack for him,  after all we are his family.  Unfortunately, neither of us are in a position to help him to this magnitude.  He is desperate for light at the end of the tunnel; a positive break to help him achieve some short term goals for his health that will give him lasting hope for the future. 

Please help him reach his financial goal so he can turn this corner without anymore added stress and anxiety.
