For ways to help, check out the Planner and Ways to Help tab. 

Also, I realized that individuals need to change the time setting in your own account settings from Central to Pacific for the Planner appointments to be accurate. 

After many months of puzzling health issues, JR was recently hospitalized and diagnosed with a rare form of blood cancer. One thing about this type of cancer is that people usually only find out they have it because they are really sick. And JR is really sick. His doctors say there is a lot of research happening about his type of cancer, and the treatments and prognoses are getting better every day. So we are trying to stay positive, while also being terrified and overwhelmed.

We are in the process of getting support requests loaded in the Planner tool on this site, so people can sign up for things like driving JR to appointments, delivering meals, and visits to keep JR company while Lucy and Kelly get out of the house for a bit. We are also creating a Go Fund Me to help sustain the family while JR is unable to work. Stay tuned for more info and opportunities to help.

Thank you all, we love you and appreciate the love you have for our family!

Reminder: Please try not to ask us questions or offer advice about JR’s condition. We will share what feels comfortable to share here and in conversations with you, but fielding even well meaning questions or advice you might have about his disease and treatment can be really stressful and upsetting for us.
