Let's help Ken's son beat cancer!

I have known Kenny (Ken to everyone else) since I was 6 years old, he became my best friend growing up. Kenny lost his dad in 1987 to cancer and now his son Jeffrey who is ONLY 27 is fighting that battle. Jeffrey was diagnosed in June of this year with stage 3 testicular cancer. Unfortunately it's very aggressive and has already spread to his stomach, lungs and lymph nodes. The next issue is Jeffrey actually has four different types of testicular cancer and they found a fifth type that is a bone cancer but is showing up in his soft tissue. They are trying treat all at the same time with different mixtures of chemo. Jeffrey was being treated at Standford but due to lack of insurance he is now being treated at UC Davis. His treatments are twice a week, UC Davis is 169 miles one way from their home. Not only is gas and lodging (when needed) but most of all is the loss of wages to drive Jeffrey back and fourth for his treatments.
Most of you all know Ken's love of racing, as much as he loves working on the cars he loves just being at the racetrack. He really is an amazing man all around and will smile no matter what. He is the rock for his family and not only Jeffrey but his younger two Bay and Ashlyn. He would NEVER ask for help so that is why I am asking for him. If you know Kenny you know that he would and has done anything to help anyone else out.
