Friends and family set up GoFundMe Campaign for Valemount BC resident battling lymphoma

Josef Jimmy Lerch is battling lymphoma, his friends and family have started a GoFundMe campaign to raise funds for his alternative treatments, travel costs and medications.

Within a 24 hour period of starting the campaign, the community has joined together to raise almost $35k to support him and his family and is steadily climbing to the goal of $50,000

The GoFundMe page says; Since June 2016, our dear friend Jimmy Lerch has been battling lymphoma. With the first set of chemotherapy, a reduction in tumor size gave us hope that his cancer was being effectivly treated. However, very recently because of side effecfs due to the once again rapid growth of his tumors, his prognosis is not looking quiet as optimistic. Alternative treatments are now necessary. With the high expenses related to alternative treatments including travel costs and medications as well as his inability to work for a minimum of one year, we are hoping to raise funds to assist him with any financial needs. We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to our loved ones, friends and neighbours for their continued support and well wishes.

Thank you so much,

The Lerch – Oberauer family.
