Miller Family Emergency Fund

I am just going to continue with this existing Go Fund Me since it's already set up.
Although he would never ask for help himself, Jarrod really needs us to gather together and raise as much as we possibly can to help him through this unbelievably difficult time in his life.
Those that know Jarrod, know that he has spent his entire life caring for those around him. I remember the story, my grandma was having an asthma attack, and he was the one to drive her to the ER. It was before he could even drive.
I have early memories of him spending his high school Summers working with disabled kids at Camp. He has dedicated his life to the compassionate care of disabled patients. Noble work that unfortunately pays very little.
He has been a rock for his entire family while battling Ezra's cancer. 
(Beyond blessing that Ezra, always with the biggest smile in the room, is such a warrior.  He has been well, healing while continuing chemo.)
During all of this Jarrod has had no choice, but to continue to work his full time job.
Now Jarrod is unable to do anything because of a broken leg. He has been down for weeks now, experiencing a lot of pain. He has been treated very poorly by the health care system. Because of his type of insurance, doctors have been asking for hundreds of dollars before scheduling him.
After weeks, he finally had surgery, yesterday! It's really unfair as he deserves the same care that he gives to others.
Tonight J is still recovering in the hospital.
He will be recovering for 12 weeks! He and Nancy are going to need help with living expenses for the next 12 weeks. Rent, food, utilities, car payment.

This go fund me is to help Jarrod, an awesome grandpa, buy a reliable car to drive his grandson, Ezra, to chemo. 
Jarrod has spent his life caring for others. I would love if we could all help to give a fraction of that back as he is going through the most difficult time of his life.
Jarrod has been a rock as his grandson,Ezra, has been battling cancer.
For those that don't know. In August, at 10 months old, Ezra was diagnosed with a Wilms tumor. It's been a roller coaster as Ezra went through 7 rounds of chemo. 
In late October Ezra spent a week at Dornbechers recovering from a surgery to remove the tumor. The surgery was a success and the surgeons were able to save 50% of his kidney.
On November 8th Jarrod got the news that Ezra will need 28! more chemo treatments.
Jarrod lives in Salem. He has been taking Ezra to his weekly chemo treatments at Dornbechers in Portland while working his regular night shift job.
Through all of this his car has been breaking down. It would be so great if we could raise enough so he can buy a  newer, reliable car to take Ez to chemo for the next 28 weeks. And maybe a little more so be doesn't have to worry about bills and can focus all of his energy on my sweet little cupie doll cousin. Whatever you can contribute helps. Much love.
