Supporting Jeff Koss

A year ago Jeff went into the hospital with what seemed to be appendicitis. The doctors proceeded with the surgery and found that it wasn't appendicitis after all. The pain was actually being caused by a large tumor on Jeff's colon. The doctors removed the tumor and lymphnodes in the surrounding area and he has been diagnosed with Stage 3 colon cancer followed by 8 months of radiation and chemotherapy. Now this cancer is back and he will have surgery 1/19. Following the procedure Jeff will need to go through another round of chemo. The number of treatments he will need will determined after the surgery.Jeff is a husband and father to three children: Morgan 14, Connor 12, and Owen 10. He will be out of work and unable to help financially support his family. His wife, Alison, is an extremely hard worker but with the entire family's financial responsibility on her shoulders, it just isn't possible for her to do it on her own.It is our hope and prayer that we can pull together as a community and help this family with their expenses, both medical and every day as soon as possible! The family is extremely humbled, grateful, and thankful for your considerations, donations, and prayers.
