As you may have heard already, our good friend Jerad has been diagnosed with a brain tumor. The condition is called meningioma, he had a benign brain tumor that was growing behind his left eye, and pushing on his 6th and optic nerve.
He had a successful surgery to remove the tumor, but will be needing another one, as well as MRI's every three months which are not covered by insurance, and are about 1k each.
Jerad has reluctantly accepted our help and has allowed us to post this in his behalf. He luckily has insurance but the medical costs as well as time lost from work accumulate rapidly. He makes his living with his art and his eyes and the continuing medical bills and upcoming recovery period will be an additional setback for him.
Those of us that are fortunate to have Jerad in our lives know the kindness he displays every day. This is our chance to show him that he is supported and loved in our community.
Thank you on on behalf of Jerad and Krystal, Miki Sodos and Alicia Amiri
