Jerry's healing journey

Jerry is a man who has touched numerous people's lives with his gentle spirit and generous heart.
His work ethic is amoung the most dedicated around. He's always giving of his time, talent, and faith.
Jerry has been battling CLL, Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia for 10+ years.
In November of 2015, Jerry was diagnosed with stage four prostate cancer. He had surgery in July 2016 as well as radiation.
Jerry has been battling pneumonia for over a month and a half and has had very little energy and has struggled to work. Again, his CLL has complicated his healing placing his body under extra duress.

At the same time that Jerry has been battling his health issues, his oldest daughter Emily, was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer. She has two small children.
We are asking for prayer and financial donations to aid in Jerry's medical expenses. He has had several tests, treatments, and medications over the course of this battle and is currently finding it difficult to work. His wife Debbie works full time and it would be helpful for her to be able to be with Jerry and Emily during these tough times.
The Penner family have amazing trust in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Their testimony to how you make it through these seasons without giving up hope, and praising even while in the middle of incredible storms, has been amazing to witness.
Will you please pray for Jerry and Debbie and their families, Braden, Emily, Harper, and Gracie Klingaman, Blair Penner, and Jordan and Kelsey Mattox and consider donating to this fund? This money couldn't go to more responsible, worthy, and grateful people.
