Dear Family and Friends,
On Oct. 4, 2017, our brother-in-law, Jaron Allred was diagnosed with a brain tumor, just like his sister and his mother. The heartache and suffering the Allred family has had to endure is almost unthinkable. The odds of brain cancer affecting three members of the same immediate family is very rare.
We are so very grateful for the abundance of love, concern, and prayers offered to them. So many people have lifted their spirits through kindness when they’ve needed it most. On October 27, 2017, Jaron had brain surgery at The Huntsman Cancer Center to remove the tumor. Even though the long surgery went well, Jaron has had a bumpy road to recovery. He is now faced with the daunting task of enduring chemo and radiation treatments overlapping each other for the next six months. The doctors have informed him that he has level-3 cancer. These types of tumors tend to keep coming back and are very aggressive. This news has been devastating to their beautiful, little family. And to all of us. But our faith in God is bringing us so much comfort.
Jaron has been unable to work for quite some time, and his employers have been incredibly generous in helping their family. We are so grateful! Extended family has also stepped up to lend crucial support and help with their day-to-day needs. But with the mounting medical bills that will continue into the foreseeable future, we felt that now would be a good time to ask for help.
Jaron has a large cheering section of people who love him, especially his three young children! We all want to support him every step of the way. We would love to ease the stress on Joni and Jaron’s mind as they get the medical care Jaron needs to fight this cancer! As we approach this holiday season, where the spirit of giving is so strong, please think of the Allred family. They would be forever grateful for whatever you are willing to contribute.
Again, we are so grateful for everyone who has been so kind. In the midst of an overwhelmingly difficult trial, it is so beautiful to see the goodness of those around us. So many people love Jaron!! He and Joni feel that love and support. And they are so thankful.
Keep fighting, Jaron! We love you!
