John Bowman

Last summer John Bowman was a happy, healthy, father of two about to be married to his sweetheart, Joardan Hamilton. One year later, life has changed dramatically as his lung collapsed multiple times causing him to have surgery. As a hard worker, John was devastated to hear that he can no longer continue with his current work, due to the physical labor that it requires. This surgery and his 2-3 month road to recovery will not only bring large medical bills in the near future, it will keep him from earning an income for his family. This will completely change their family dynamic. A father of two little girls, John will not be able to pick them up as he cannot lift more than 10 pounds after the surgery. This in turn will require them to hire a sitter as well as someone to care for John while Joardan is at work. Along with regular monthly bills, these added expenses will simply be too much. Please consider making a donation and know that it will be absolutely appreciated. We also ask that you would be praying for them, as this will be a very stressful and emotional time for John, Joardan and their daughters.
