The family & friends of LJ Klopfer are uniting to raise money to help pay for LJ's medical treatments

Thank you everybody for your help and support through this difficult time for the Klopfer family. Johnny and Jill are overwhelmed with all your generosity and kind words. They do not have words to express their gratitude.

LJ is out of surgery and all went well. The mass and the kidney have been removed. LJ's odds for a full recovery are very good. However, he still has a long road ahead of him. As of right now, the doctors are hopeful that chemo won't be needed but there is still a chance chemo will be in his distant if not near future. LJ will remain as a patient at Children's Hospital Pediatric ICU for at least another week.

Any parent knows the helpless and frustrating feeling of seeing your child suffer without having any control to stop it. Knowing it will continue for some time makes it even more heartbreaking and devastating emotionally. Yesterday, I saw the concern and anxiety in the faces of Johnny and Jill and the rest of the Klopfer/Konopka families.

More important than anything right now for LJ is to see the faces of his parents displaying happiness and comfort and not the faces of stress and anxiety.

If there is ever a time to go out of your way to do something good, now is that time. I saw first-hand yesterday how every call, text message, promise of a prayer, kind word from a hospital worker or friend brought a small comforting smile to the faces of the family.

Please help support LJ and his family. No donation is too little. And please keep LJ in your thoughts and prayers.
