Earlier this year, a friend to everyone, Jonathan King, entered the hospital suffering from extreme fatigue. He was eventually diagnosed with Myelodysplastic Syndromes (MDS), which quickly progressed to Acute Myelogenous Leukemia (AML). Prior to his diagnosis, Jon had almost completed his graduate work in Nursing while working full-time to provide for his wife, Elise, and their 8-month-old son, Liam.
From January until the time of his death, Jon spent the majority of his days in three different hospitals. He was consequently out of work and had to put his studies aside. True to form, Jon maintained his irreverent sense of humor and tenderness toward his family and friends throughout his terminal battle.
With your support, we are hoping to relieve Jon’s wife and young son of some of the current and impending financial burdens resulting from this tragic loss. Jon’s brave fight and subsequent death have resulted in high medical bills, funeral expenses, and loss of income for a young family.
The good news is that you can help. Whether it’s a personal donation or a larger corporate sponsorship, any assistance is greatly appreciated. Join us for our Golf Scramble or the King’s Cause Benefit Concert.
