JD was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer on June 1, 2016 that had spread into his neck and brain.
JD is 39 years old, an amazing husband to his loving wife Ann, and a fantastic father to four sweet little girls. He is also the oldest of six children and is the best big brother and son his siblings and parents could ask for. Needless to say, the news has been devastating for all those who know him and many of us didn’t know what to do. True to his form, JD has donned his super hero husband-father-brother-son cape, and if you came across him in the hall you’d likely never know about his diagnosis.
JD is not going down without a fight and we want to do whatever we can to help. As many of you know, medical bills can add up quick, as do the general costs of living. There isn’t always a lot that we can collectively do in situations like this, but one thing we can do is ensure that money is the last thing on their minds right now. JD and Ann don’t need to worry about how they’re going to afford treatment while paying their mortgage and feeding their family. They are two of the most kind and generous people we know and it’s time we reciprocate that kindness and generosity.
Please take the opportunity to help a very deserving man, and his family, fight the fight with everything they have. Let’s do what we can to allow them to focus on their physical, mental, and spiritual needs.
As always, keep sending your love, support, and prayers to the family!
We love you JD, and we’ve all got your back!
