Help Brother Jon Sendoya Fight Cancer

 Brothers & Sisters,

Jon Sendoya has been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma.  He has been receiving chemotherapy treatments since last summer.  A recent pet scan has revealed that the cancer is still present, which will inevitably require more chemotherapy coupled with a bone marrow blood treatment procedure.  This new treatment plan will no doubt be a long and arduous one.

Jon's attitude throughout this ordeal has been nothing but positive, however, even with insurance, Jon's medical bills have been putting a strain on his finances.  He has recently begun selling some of his personal properties just to pay his monthly expenses.  This is where you can help.

ANY AMOUNT DONATED WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.  NO AMOUNT IS TOO SMALL.  Donations will directly help Jon with his bills, and any further money collected will be donated to cancer research.  

Please click on the Donate Now link below to help Jon and his family.

Thanks for your help.
