In 2009, my friend John Shirk was diaganosed with Synovial Sarcoma; a rare form of cancer which usually occurs near to the joints of arm, neck or leg. Since diaganoses the cancer has spread to include tumors on his lung.
I have done a lot of fundraising for and supporting of various causes and non-profits and I don't ususally see the impact of my donation or work. This time it is personal. John has been a friend of mine for 40 years; he, his wife Kathy, sons Jacob and Nathan, and daughter Sydney are family and in my family we have each others back and make life happen. John wants to make a trip to Disneyland happen for his family.
To make this happen, we have set up a Go Fund Me account (http://www.gofundme.com/johnshirk). The focus of the fund is to send the family to Disneyworld for a much needed family vacation.
On behalf of our family and the Shirk family thank you very much for considering making a donation!
