Jack-Fans Against Cancer - Act Now

Dear Friends - Dear Jack-Fans, WE NEED YOU NOW! It is with a massively heavy heart that I have to tell you that this beautiful little beacon of love & of light has been dealt an incredibly cruel blow. Last week, Jack was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. (High Risk Neuroblastoma). For the past week, I have struggled to find the words to describe this, and every time i think i can, the words just get stuck in my throat. In the end, I have had to concede that there are simply no words; none at all. Over the next several months, Jack will need multiple rounds of Chemotherapy, Immunotherapy, Two Bone Marrow Transplants and Radiation Therapy. And that is what we know right now.  TWO WAYS THAT YOU CAN HELP: 1. DONATE - As much or as little as you can - It will all help and it all matters to Jack! "All" funds will be used to offset any treatment costs not covered by medical insurance and to help Jack and his family manage additional financial concerns such as ancilliary bills/expenses related to his care and potential loss of income while he is being cared for. 100% of any funds left over will be donated to a child cancer (Neuroblastoma) charity - to continue the fight for other children. 2. GO VIRAL! Share this page with as many people as you can! By "Going Viral", you will radically increase the odds of Jack getting the help that he needs. There are many good people out there that may care enough to help - we just have to let them know that they can - and that it will make a difference! Go ahead - Spread the word! MY THOUGHTS: While our world has been so harshly upended, I will also tell you that I believe, in my bones & in my heart, that we will get through this...that "he" will get through this. I will also tell you, that while Jack's life has suddenly become a life of hospitals & of change, that he has demonstrated resilience, courage & a tolerance for his situation that most likely, you or I could not. The road ahead will be long. The fight ahead will be very hard; fraught with danger and with challenge. But I earnestly believe, that with an optimistic heart, that with kindness, prayers and community, and above all, with an "indomitable" will to win, that we will get through this...that "he" will succeed! MY APPEAL: As friends & as "Jack-Fans", I ask each of you to join us and to help Jack in the coming weeks & months ahead. With your faith, by supporting us however you can & by sharing in our "indomitable will" to win! Together, let's keep this beautiful little light shining strong for all to see! Thank you so very much! ❤ Simon (aka: Jack's Dad).
