On March 26, 2018, John's father Drew McDonald unexpectedly died at the age of just 42. Understandably, this tragedy has caused a significant emotional and financial burden on John and his mother. Your contribution to this fund will enable John to complete this important therapy.
Any amount received in excess of our initial goal will be applied directly to John’s other medical needs.
About me: I’m Craig McDonald from Massachusetts. I’m John’s uncle and Drew McDonald’s brother. Funds collected will specifically be used to 1) pay off the initial deposit (approximately $3000) which Jenn and Drew made for John’s registration in the 4-week summer physical therapy program, 2) pay off the remainder of the balance (another $3000 approximately) for John to participate in the physical therapy program, and 3) cover the cost of Jenn and John’s regular transportation to the program site in New Jersey (about 90 minutes’ drive from their home in Pennsylvania) during the 4-week program as well as one month’s worth of meals for mother and son and hotel accommodations in that area where overnights are required. Funds will be withdrawn and provided to John’s mother Jenn to cover these expenses.
