Jerry was ambitious about making a huge difference for kids that are fighting or have been through any problems from divorce, disabilities, bullies, and other Crisis's so he can help future generations. Jerry even showed additional interest in changing lives he planned to offer parents a after school program with Kids In Crisis called Kids in Christ where jerry had planned to to have a Martial Arts class along with daily lessons on creating a relationship with God similar to the Upward program, he really wanted to get kids to "meet Jesus".
Many People have asked if theres anything they can do to help. Raising this money takes a sum of dedicated people. My Dad has touched so many lives and wants to do good things under God. If one out of every five of those lives he's touched can be here for him there will be no problem making this happen. If you have a Facebook, please "share" any updates I post so we can be talking to thousands of people. If you don't have a Facebook or want to take an extra step, challenge yourself to tell 5 people every week about the website and your favorite story you have with my Dad. If he broke both of his legs I know he would be out there playing arcade hoops, and thats when he's not busy helping other people. He's always been a fighter and usually it was for other people. Now we need to fight for him.
The Lemmons Family Fund:
The funds will be used for medical costs and related expenses.
We are so blessed to have such wonderful family and friends
willing to help us through this time. As many of you know, Jerry has been
diagnosed with Stage IV melanoma cancer. Recently a tumor was removed from his
right arm and 24 lymph nodes from under his arm, both diagnosed as malignant.
Jerry is a paint contractor and is also right handed. This circumstance has put
him out of work for an indefinite period. Jerry is in the hospital currently and is having radiation done, it's the only thing left to do.Being self-employed and uninsured has
placed a financial burden on his family. Between surgery bills, oncologists,
doctors, and the loss of employment the situation has devastated his family. We
could not survive this experience without your love and prayers, Jerry and Pam need to raise the money to continue the treatments . We know they have many friends and loved ones. If
you can keep them in your prayers, send a message via this
website, and make a donation if the spirit moves you, contribute to them so they can beat this. Any donation that you could generously provide helps jerry get the treatments he needs.
