The Story

We've all met people who seem too good to be true. (Usually on first dates.)

We don't often find the people who are.

For the past thirty years, my good friend John has been the poster child for all that is good in the world. One of the most generous, caring people I know. A deeply religious guy who is always there when a friend needs a hand.

Now it's our turn.

This single dad who is raising a daughter on his own just found out he has prostate cancer, and it's rated an 8 out of 10 on the Gleason scale, which makes it a high risk to spread.

We can't let that happen. John's daughter needs him, and so do your kids. You see, John produces audio dramas for children. He's always loved the "theater of the mind" and has created several family-friendly award winning projects.

All he needs to keep doing this is the best medical care he can afford.

One big problem is the very high deductible of John's health insurance. We can't let John miss out on necessary care because of finances. The other problem is that John is self-employed; cancer treatment will be physically draining and who knows how much he'll be able to work.

John has faith that God will get him through this. If you've been blessed to have some extra money, a donation to help save him would be a wonderful way to spend it.

Hello friends,

Just wanted to update you on John's condition. He has started radiation treatments and so far has had no adverse side effects. As many of you know, those who receive radiation often have either terrible symptoms or none, and so far John is part of the fortunate group.

In an unrelated matter, John fell down some stairs and sustained some severely bruised ribs. This has nothing to do with his cancer, but just one more thing for him to deal with, along with an additional medical expense of more than a thousand dollars.

Please keep the "prayers and shares" coming, as we still have a way to go to reach our goal.

Hello friends,

After two weeks we've reached about two thirds of our goal. Keep the prayers and shares coming. All those shares are really helping to get the word out. Meantime, here's a message from John:

I'm deeply grateful and humbled by the outpouring of support and encouragement
from family and friends and new friends! This past week, I received my first
big medical bill. And I was able to pay it without any worries about where it
would come from. What a relief!

I feel fine at this point. I'm going through preliminary appointments to get everything
lined up for radiation treatments, which start June 6 and go for 8 weeks. I'm concerned
about the possible side effects. I'm asking God for complete healing by the time I get my MRI May 9.

A friend of mine had a heart blockage and went in for surgery a few months ago.
To his surprise, the doctor found no blockage at all--it had completely cleared! He was healed!
I'm praying for the same. I'm also trusting God for whatever he has ahead for me.
Thank you for your prayers and support!
