"Love Gives"

$4,370 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 44 people in 32 months
This fund has been established to pay honor to a great man, our Friend, John C. Williams. We, John's friends, are raising money to help our dear brother and his lovely wife Lisa. The money will be used by John and Lisa as they see fit to cover medical expenses and daily needs as John has been diagnosed with ALS.

"ALS, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. A-myo-trophic comes from the Greek language. "A" means no. "Myo" refers to muscle, and "Trophic" means nourishment – "No muscle nourishment." When a muscle has no nourishment, it "atrophies" or wastes away. "Lateral" identifies the areas in a person's spinal cord where portions of the nerve cells that signal and control the muscles are located. As this area degenerates it leads to scarring or hardening ("sclerosis") in the region."
 (ALS Association, 2015).

Bro. John has lived a life of service in the name of JesusChrist. As a young man traveling the world with his mother and father and landing in Detroit, Michigan. John has given of himself for the sake of youth and young adults on the streets of Detroit for over 30 years. He is also a military veteran, servicing in Operation Desert Storm. John spent 8 years in the Michigan National Guard.

You may have been touched by John through Life Directions, Detroit Public Schools, Joy of Jesus, People's Community Services, the Baptist Center, Cass Park Baptist Church, and the list goes on.

John's obedience to service has blessed and touched the lives of so many. We are asking that you make a sacrificial gift and bless John and Lisa today.

In His Service,

John's Friends

I Thank God for each of you who have given and pray that God will bless you according to the riches in Christ Jesus.

Pray for Lisa (my faithful wife) and my continued strength in the Lord.

Again thanks for your genrosity and many blessings to be upon you.

Hello donors, John and I have been fighting the good fight of faith and feeling very blessed to have supporters like you.
We have begun toxin removal treatment and so far so good. It has been said that to have successful stem cell treatment ( which is a possible goal,as well as other homeopathic treatments ) one should do as much as possible to remove toxins from the body. We have also been referred to a Doctor for consideration for stem cell treatment.
Please keep us in prayer that God will continue to keep us until the opportunity presents itself. That you again for all that you do and we will keep you updated as we move forward.
Sincerely ,
Lisa and John
