Jon's Cancer Battle

Jon Michel is a retired navy veteran who needs your help! He was diagnosed with head and neck cancer in 2015. The cancer was removed and Jon underwent radiation and chemotherapy treatment. He has been in remission until recently, however, the cancer has now returned.

Jon had a CAT scan on Wednesday 7/19/2017 and the cancer is in his right hip and also his neck. The doctors plan more radiation and chemotherapy. In addition, Jon will need a complete hip reconstruction - not just a hip replacement because most of the hip bone is completely gone. The doctors are still deciding how to best solve this problem, but they are planning for the surgery to happen as early as next week 7/24/2017.

Jon, his wife Julie and their two daughters need your help. Jon and Julie own a small handyman business in Knoxville. The doctors already don't think that he will be able to ever walk normally again, let alone do handyman work, so they are being forced to close their business. His wife is actively looking for work to support the family, but they need your help. Your donations are greatly appreciated.

Jon and his family know that God is ultimately in control of this situation and prayers are the most important thing that they need. If you are in a position to donate we would be very appreciative, and if not please remember to keep them in your prayers, as this is more important than any amount of money!
