Prayers4Jon

Calling all prayer warriors. Our most cherished member of the Elite Sports Medicine team really needs our help right now. On May 20, 2019, after months of undiagnosed medical decline, Jonathan Escalante was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. Jonathan is battling a very aggressive form of leukemia; he is determined to fight this battle and win.  Jon has already conquered one week of intense chemotherapy since he was diagnosed. His treatment will require intensive chemotherapy and bone marrow transplant. Jonathan will spend the next two weeks at Cedars-Sinai Hospital under close observation. His repeat bone marrow biopsy will determine the next steps in is treatment.

Jonathan is the most hard working man, loyal friend, loving husband and devoted father. He needs our prayers and support as he fights this battle. The Escalante family needs our help so they can remain focused on caring for Jonathan.  Lisette will need assistance caring for their son Nathan, so she can stay by Jonathan's bedside.  Please keep Jonathan in your prayers.  A meal train has also been created so we can help provide food for the family in the coming months.

No contribution is too small. This family needs our help to support the costs of Jonathan's extensive medial treatments, and their financial obligations while Jonathan is unable to work. Jonathan has blessed so many of us with his healing hands, let's rally and support this family in healing Jonathan. 39550860_1559240455730957_r.jpeg
