Quijano Life-Sustaining Support

My name is John Quijano and in 2016 I was stricken with a seizure at work that lead to an operation to remove a tumor from my brain.  I underwent chemo and radiation treatment from which I still experience side effects and in the ensuing months, my wife, Billie and I  re-located from Oakland to San Francisco where we now reside.
At the beginning of this journey, My neice Amy McCrerey established a GoFundMe campaign to raise money for much needed support.  That campaign proved to be invaluable in those early weeks.
Now we are faced with the realities of living on  Social Security and a small pension with mounting medical expenses, diminishing savings and maxed-out credit cards.  I am faced with frequent MRI's, weekly doctor's visits and new medications while Billie contends with her own issues with medication for anxiety and panic disorder and upcoming dental work.

We are starting this campaign in the hope that our family, friends and others will be willing and able to assist us in our time of struggle.  We realize that there are many others who are in the same dire circumstances.  and we appreciate all the help afforded by the GoFundMe experience.  These funds will be used for medical and dental expenses,  transportation, including auto repair and living expenses.

We will also be exploring other means of raising funds including the offering for sale of Billie's artwork on her website at zhibit.org/zola where her children's book "Chiqui Talks to Gramdma" is now available for sale and will soon include her photography and other works.

Thank you for your kind consideration and please know that whatever help is offered is greatly appreciated.
Sincerely,
John and Billie Quijano
