John’s Medical Fund

$4,013 of $50,000 goal

Raised by 52 people in 9 months
Over the Christmas holiday we found out my husband, John has cancer. He is unable to have it removed via surgery because of the tumor’s proximity to the carotid artery, and therefore has to go through 7 weeks of radiation and chemotherapy. 

Even with health insurance, the medical costs are going to be outrageous. And to make matters worse, John got laid off from his job today. While I have paid time off from work, I’m burning through those days rather quickly so that I can be with my husband at his appointments. Needless to say, finances are an issue. 

Our need for financial assistance has to come before my pride, so I’m putting this out there for anyone who can help.  Thank you in advance. ❤️

It’s been a few months and a lot has happened. Here’s the abbreviated update: John made it through the aneurysm ordeal, and then went through 7 or 8 weeks of radiation and chemo for the cancer. We were told the tumor was gone, but within a couple weeks it came back. John went in for surgery last Friday, and is still in the hospital recuperating. We were told they got it all and that John should make a full recovery. He’ll be going home in a couple days, and will have to have a home health aide, along with respiratory and speech therapy. Hopefully after about 6 - 8 weeks everything will get back to normal.
Until then however, John is out of work, and I’m almost out of family leave and PTO. Our financial situation is pretty bleak. So I’m putting this back out there in hopes that some millionaire with a big heart might see this and offer to help (gotta remain optimistic!)...

On Monday the doctor removed John’s brain drain. They monitored him closely for 48 hours, and did a follow-up CT this morning. It was clear (yay!!!) so he gets to come home tomorrow!!

Well, we are on Day 10 here in ICU. John has had a couple of good days, but today is not one of them. I don’t really know what else to say other than we still desperately need your love, prayers and support. Thank you ❤️
