Hi everyone, my name is Kris Towne. I’ve started this GoFundMe campaign for a dear friend, John Joyce. The goal is to help pay for mounting medical bills (his surgery, multiple hospital visits and his upcoming chemotherapy treatments) and being unable to work for an extensive time.
I met John five years ago when he started working for us at Capricorn Studios in downtown San Diego. It's been an absolute joy and pleasure getting to know John, and having his good vibes around the studio. Early in September John woke with debilitating pain, unable to get out of bed, he was rushed to the ER. The diagnosis was devastating; testicular cancer. He underwent critical surgery immediately. Soon after John was informed that the cancer had not been eradicated, spreading further into lymph nodes in his abdomen. He's now about to begin Chemotherapy starting November 1st.
Even with health insurance, navigating the system has proven difficult. Many of the procedures and visits that his insurance set him up are now unfortunately“not in his network”. Needless to say the bills are stacking up, and he faces months of not being able to work.
Regardless of the difficult circumstances, we are confident John is gonna pull through! The support system of his friends and family have been tremendous. It’s obvious how many people John has touched and reached in such a positive way.
I’m looking forward to having him back at the recording studio where we work, making me laugh, sharing his incredible talent to write and perform music (live and the recording studio), cook his amazing meals, and continue to touch us all with the authentic light and love that he gives so purely. Simply put, he makes every room he walks into a better, more fun place to be.
With John’s permission we have created this account to help raise money for medical bills, time unable to work for an income, and general living expenses. John will be receiving and withdrawing the donations directly. Any donation, big or small is greatly appreciated! If we all give a little, we can do a lot to help!
