The Family and friends of Jeremiah are uniting to help raise money to help with his battle against testicular cancer.

Our Family is going through a trying time. Jeremiah, my husband of 18 years and father of my two wonderful children is fighting an aggressive form of testicular cancer. Jeremiah is 36. He was diagnosed in May of 2011. He has completed his first line chemotherapy as well as several surgeries and still has a few more months of rehabilitation to contend with for the after effects of chemotherapy. He has been unable to work at all since May, due to the severity of his case.
We have been struggling to manage on about a quarter of his normal pay, but have finally reached a point where we need help. We have exhausted any savings we had, including college funds, and our home is now in foreclosure proceedings. I have been a stay at home mom for close to 18 years and have been unable to find any work due to the economy. I am the primary caregiver for my husband and children. We do not have family living close to help, which makes it much more challenging. If I was able to find work, those funds would also have to cover care taking while I am gone. We have had to prioritize what can be paid as far as bills, but even managing utilities has become a problem. While some of our utility providers have been understanding, with the end of the year upon us, none are willing to work with payment arrangements to help us get through this last hurdle before my husband can return to work.

We have always been able to meet our obligations over the years without asking for help, but find ourselves in an unexpected situation which is overwhelming and we have exhausted any other options.
