Please help offset/assist with medical/daily living expenses to alleviate the financial burden.To help James fight the fight for his life

November 22, 2011, at the age of 26, James was diagnosed with stage III/IV Hodgkins Lymphoma after battling symptoms for almost a year. James has been undergoing ABVD chemotherapy since December 26, 2011. Unable to work or care for his two year old son, his wife Keri has been the primary provider.

James original PET Scan in December showed that tumors were located throughout his entire body. A second PET Scan was done in March that showed a very promising recovery. There were still tumors in the lymph nodes in his neck and one that has not shrunk yet and still taking up over a third of his chest.

As you can imagine, this unexpected family crisis has taken quite a toll on their family, emotionally and financially. Keri has exhausted all her sick leave and is forced to take unpaid days as needed.

We don't know what the total expenses will be - but we felt we had to get something started to alleviate the stress on James and Keri so that they can focus all of their energy and strength on winning this battle and on their two year old son, Jayden. The money donated will be used to pay for medical expenses and to help with daily living expenses while James and Keri have to live off of one income. Please keep the Teal's in your prayers at this time! James, Keri, and Jayden need all your support and prayers to help them stay strong through this trial.
