The Grasso Family

I am writing on behalf of our beloved friends the Grasso's. Craig, was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2011 and has been battling it ever since. As an Army veteran, he is quite a tough guy, as most anyone who has meet him would know. He has always pushed to remain strong for his family and provide as much of a normal life for them as possible. He has managed to continue working throughout all of his treatments only taking time off for a vertebra replacement in his spine 2 years ago and a recent bout of pneumonia . Unfortunately treatment options have run out and they are going to the last resort of a stem cell transplant as well as heavy chemo treatments which will leave Craig unable to work.
Craig, Jodi and their 5 children are all so very generous with their knowledge, love, and time, and I am hoping to repay their generosity.Craig is an amazing Storyboard artist as well as an inspirational teacher at CalArts, who has genuinely helped hardworking students achieve their goals to work in the animation industry.Their eldest daughter lives in Kansas City,where she works as an artist and volunteers with under privileged youth. Their eldest son is currently serving in the Army. Craig and Jodi, along with their 3 teenage daughters actively volunteer in the Los Angeles horse community. They have been an asset to the Jr Posse program in Santa Clarita, ETI and have made several horse rescues in the recent fires as well. 
I am hoping to raise funds to relieve the financial burden upon them as a result of Craig's inability to work over the next few months.  I hope to give him precious time to heal and spend with his family without the worry of paying their monthly expenses during this extreme hardship. Any amount you can spare or even just a prayer would be greatly appreciated! Thank You and God Bless!
