Benefit for John Schmitz

In April of 2013 John was diagnosed with terminal metastatic small cell lung cancer, the most aggressive form of lung cancer which had spread to his heart, adrenal glands and lymph nodes. He began treatment which involved 4 month of aggressive chemotherapy and radiation all while he continued to work full time. Unfortunately the cancer continued to grown and John was put on a trial which included 7 more months of chemo. The side effects from this chemo made it impossible to work. In July of 2014 the cancer had grown so much that he had to be taken off the trial and put back on the original chemotherapy which resulted in a set back and a week in ICU only to find that the cancer had spread to his brain. Even with health insurance the lack of full time income and the multitude of co-pays, deductibles and co-insurances for treatments have become overwhelming. Please join us to help ease this burden for John and his wife Arlene, allowing him to continue to focus on fighting this cancer!
