Celebration of Life Cruise

Our dear friend John Schmidt has been diagnosed with terminal cancer. His doctors have given him a year to live. In that time John would like to enjoy his life, his family, his friends.

The cancer is inoperable, John has decided against chemotherapy.

Right now he feels good.

We'd like to send John and his wife Araceli on a cruise in "Celebration of Life" that runs from Long Beach into Ensenada and back. Please donate a small amount to help John fund this trip and then consider joining him for the four-day trip on-board.

UPDATE: Any funds raised beyond the initial campaign of $2,000 will be appied to John's outstanding cancer surgery bills from 2014. John has unpaid medical costs from his intital surgery totalling $5,000--he's currently making monthly payments on those bills. He would be greatly relieved to not burden his wife Araceli with that after he completes this battle.
