In 2014, John was diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer (Pleomorphic Xanthoastrocytoma) at age 16. He underwent a 9 hour surgery and numerous radiation treatments. John stayed strong in his faith in God through this hard time in his life. The past few years, his MRI's have not shown any sign of cancer. Unfortunately his MRI on October 17, 2017, showed the cancer has come back aggressively. John is scheduled for surgery on November 28, 2017 and also will need to undergo chemotherapy treatments. Please keep John and his family in your prayers as he fights this courageous battle once again. You can also help by donating to his Go Fund Me page - click on the Ways To Help tab above. Thank you!
