Fund to offset John Jackson's medical expenses and also fund PSA exams for those that can't afford to have the test run.

John Jackson was diagnosed in December 2008 with prostate cancer, which metastisized to the bone and has been in a critical period of miracles or peace. Unfortunately, John passed away on July 21, 2012.  While we are saddened by his death, we are blessed that John passed away with minimal suffering and without having to endure the typical "end game" of cancer. 

We are asking for HIGH FIVES FOR JOHN! 5 dollars,50 bucks, 500 bills, any denomination of FIVE. Why FIVE? Normal PSA should be 0-5.

For the past 3 1/2 years he has "done it his way"...hiked mountains ,snow skiied, but most of all has given back to his community, Cody, WY, by sponsoring newspaper and radio advertisements urging men who have never had a PSA test to do so. He even offered to pay for them. John's generosity as a person is selfless and genuine...a true gentleman and the most honest friend anyone could ask for.

Our GOAL is to 1st raise money for medical bills, as John was self pay. University of Colorado Hospital TEAM has been phenomenal. Angels abound and collaboratively we can support John and the medical teams and hospice volunteers who fought for him. Our 2nd GOAL is that any donations not needed for High Fives For John will fund a new foundation to support others in need with prostate cancer. Paying it forward. The mere idea of this brings tears and a sparkle to his family's eyes and we are sure his spirit is smiling upon you from a higher place.
