Jon Has Cancer - Strong Like Bull



In late July, 2017, my brother, Jonathan Ham, was diagnosed with Stage IV Pancreatic Neuroendocrine cancer or PNET. It is a very rare, very aggressive form of cancer. The average age for being diagnosed with this type of cancer, 71.   Jon is 44, a loving husband to Desiree, and devoted father of two, Hailey and Carlos. 
In Jon's case, the only possible treatment is aggressive chemotherapy.   There will be many expenses: insurance co-pays, travel expenses related to treatment, and loss of income for both Jon and Desiree as they fight this side by side.  Jon is the primary provider for his family.  He enjoys his job as a programmer at a local college and wants to work as much as he can through treatments.

In times like these, we often hear "What can I do?" We are so thankful so many friends and family want to help. We count it among our blessings!  First, we ask for your support through prayer.  Everyone can participate and we believe it is our first line of offense in any battle, especially Jon's battle for his life!  Jon's faith in God is his anchor in this storm of life.

Next, please consider joining the fight along side Jon and Desiree through financial support.  Your support helps take the financial burden off of them so they can put 100% into the part of the battle we can not do for them.

Jon has a warrior spirit.  Long before he personally experienced his own battle with cancer, he fought for kids fighting cancer as a supporter of St. Baldrick's Foundation where he raised money and awareness by shaving his head on numerous occasions.  That is the kind of guy he is...a warrior with a heart of gold who stands strong in the face of the enemy and defends those who can not fight for themselves. 

Finally, we ask you leave words of encouragement.  These will be their fuel to fight as they are reminded they do not fight alone.
