Welcome to The Luther Family's CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
Jason and Kristin Luther are an amazing couple from Havertown, PA who seek to love others and serve their community whenever possible. They are raising 4 beautiful children: Derek (15), Ellison (9), Caden (7), and Hollyn (5).
On July 23, Jason went to the emergency room for extreme abdominal pain. Once there he was admitted to the ICU due to a severe infection from a bowel perforation by a cancerous tumor. In the following days it became clear to the doctors that Jason had metastatic colon cancer that has spread to his liver.
The cancer diagnosis is an awful burden to bear for Jason and Kristin, and to compound this burden Jason has been at his new job for less than a year so he does not qualify for FMLA. Kristin has been working part time at a position that does not include health insurance, so the whole family is covered by the insurance through Jason's company. As Jason will be undergoing intense cancer treatment for the foreseeable future, there is uncertainty about when and to what extent he will be able to work.
This site will give all of us a place to read updates about Jason's progress and opportunities to support the family emotionally and financially.
