John Jalbert Cancer War Chest

This campaign is to raise a war chest for John Jalbert’s battle with esophageal cancer.

John’s cancer is a result of long-term asbestos exposure, starting in the Canadian Army and continuing through five decades as automotive technician. Like so many in his position, he was never warned about the dangers of asbestos exposure or provided protective gear by the army or subsequent employers.

John was recently denied long-term disability by his employer’s insurance company because he is over 65. Because of this, he is imminent danger of losing his home which he shares with his wife of 40 years and their chronically ill son.

From special dietary needs, to medications, to simply fuel for commuting, the bills add up very quickly.

There is no one more deserving of good break. John is an honoured veteran, a current councilman in Qu’Appelle Sask, incredibly hard-working, charitable, selfless and kind. He is man of good cheer, riotous humor, and a spiritual leader is his family and community, reflecting the character and compassion of Christ in every life he touches.

He a good man in a tough spot through no fault of his own. Whatever you can do to help will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you, and whether you can support this battle financially or not, we humbly request and gratefully accept your prayers for John’s healing and God's provision.
