With his permission, I'm starting this YouCaring fund raiser page for my brother Todd Jensen who is fighting cancer and needs our help. He is one of the kindest and most hard working men I have ever known and his skills on heavy equipment are unparalleled. But heavy equipment won't help him battle cancer. Your prayers on his behalf will sustain him through this ordeal. My purpose here is to ask you to also help him and his family with the hardship of medical bills and lost wages which will pile up and soon be overwhelming. Anything you can donate to help him will be so very much appreciated.
From Todd on Facebook on 12/8/2016:
"On November 6th, while shaving, I noticed a lump on the side of my neck. One CT scan, a couple of needle biopsies and a three hour surgery later, the lab tells me that it is follicular thyroid cancer and so I get to go back into surgery again on Monday to have the rest of my thyroid removed.
"So far the worst part is the vocal cord paralysis which the doctor says will heal in about five more weeks. (It's interesting to find out what all you use your vocal cords for, e.g. Talking, swallowing, coughing, and breathing).
"Please don't misunderstand. I am not complaining. The Lord has blessed me so much. Above all with a calm assurance that everything will be alright.
"Many of you have known for some time and I want to thank you for your prayers and well wishes. Above all I want to thank my wife who is always there for me."
