John Fischer's Road to Recovery

On March 19, 2019, my brother John Fischer suffered a massive Brain Stem Stroke that also affected 4 other parts of his brain (5 strokes in all). The doctors said that if he wasn’t a former Marine, he would not have survived. His parents, siblings, and 3 children have been at his bedside these first few weeks to provide emotional support, and he has made miraculous progress.


As we focus on his recovery, we are now concerned about his expenses. He is no longer able to work and won’t be for quite some time, and his Veterans (VA) benefits are not adequate to cover the necessary Physical Therapy and rehab.  Coupled with his monthly expenses, he needs help. Any contribution would be a blessing. 100% of the proceeds will go directly to John.

Above all, we would appreciate continued prayers and support. It is a miracle that he is alive, and clearly God is not done with him yet. Thank you so much!
