Support for Joab Ruiz & Family

Joab is one of the nicest most genuine guys you will ever meet.  He is a lucky man to have a wonderful wife, Bri, and two sons, Isaiah 12 and Raif 4. Joab was recently diagnosed with a massive tumor occupying almost 30% of his brain.  After meeting with several specialists Joab was informed that due to the size and nature of his tumor there was no way to completely remove it surgically.  On March 5th, 3 days after his 39th birthday, Joab underwent brain surgery to remove as much of his tumor as possibile.  The surgery was successful in removing 70-80% of the tumor, however Joab still has a long road ahead of him in recovery and additional treatment.  Our goal is to raise funds to help Joab and his family offset medical cost and provide support during his time off  for recovery.  Any support is greatly appreciated.
