My name is Dawn. The purpose of this page is to raise money to help with medical bills and living expenses for my friend JR. 

This is a picture of JR before he got sick. This is JR before he got sick.

This is JR now.This is JR now.JR was diagnosed with both colon and lung cancer in July of 2014. He had surgery first to remove the colon cancer and is on number 11 out of 12 rounds of chemotherapy. 

If you have ever watched someone go though this process you know how gruelling and utterly exhausting this is for him. He's tired but he can't sleep. He's hungry but most often food does not taste good to him. Not only is he facing the anxiety of being sick and going though treatment, there is a paper avalanch of bills that come in the mail on a regular basis. He has faced this head on with a strength and positive attitude that I sincerely admire.

I want to help for many reasons but the biggest is just that he is a good guy . He has picked me up, dusted me off, and put me back on my feet more than once in the two years since I met him. I can honestly say I am a better person for having him around. 

Being sick and unable to work has been very difficult. This is a man who is used to working upwards of 60 hours a week between his two jobs. Both of them physical labor. He doesn't complain about anything, he just keeps on going. He's fond of saying "Just let God do his work he knows what he's doing. "

JR is used to making frequent trips from Green Bay to Milwaukee to help his mother with errands. Unfortunately his car needs a new transmission and he has not been able to make it down there recently. 

So I asked myself what I could do and it occurred to me that we know people llitterally all over the world who might want to help. We know some pretty cool people who probablly know other cool people. You get the picture. 

With that said, Please donate and share this with anyone you know who might be able to pitch in. Any amount would help even if it's just $1 to let him know he has people behind him.
