On April 7th, Jon visited the ER with severe abdominal pain. Doctors found a mass in one of his adrenal glands. He went to Mayo to undergo testing and doctors are 98% sure the tumor is adrenal cortical cancer, a hormonal type of cancer that has put Jon's body in a state of feeling stressed for the past year. The tumor is very large and will need to be removed surgically.
Jon's surgery is scheduled for Friday, April 19. The surgery will be invasive and recovery will be long. He will need both an extended hospital stay, as well as time at home to heal. Meanwhile, both Jon and Hannah will be missing significant time at work.The Schultz family needs your support in three ways: 1. PRAY:
