The friends of the Jackson family are raising money to help get Sean the surgery he needs to remove a tumor from his neck!

(FUNDRAISER NOTE: If you wish to donate via PayPal please send the funds to

In August 2010 Sean Jackson, father-of-two, discovered a painful lump on the side of his neck. Uninsured, it took an excruciating three months to receive a diagnosis and any form of pain relief. Sean was told he had a benign tumor and that the only option available was surgery to remove the growth. After an attempt to drain fluid from the area, the lump returned to it's former size and Sean was in agony. It was agreed that the surgery must go ahead.

The last few months have been tough for them all and his loving wife Lisa has been fighting to get him some form of insurance and help from charities but has met roadblocks and funding issues. Unfortunately the only insurance company who has agreed to help have demanded a high deductible before they are willing to assist with the cost of surgery.

Sean has been struggling through the pain to work part-time so he can put food on the table for his wife and two sons. The family have been having difficulties making ends meet for months and have been surviving on generous donations from close friends. If they are unable to raise the money required by the insurance company Sean will not be able to have the surgery he needs to remove the tumor. Even a donation of $1 would go towards helping Sean return to a pain-free life.

On behalf of the Jackson family, we thank you for your continued love, support & prayers.
