This is Jon, our brother firefighter that has occupational brain cancer. Whatever avenues we can use to get this out and to help him and his wife financially we would be very appreciative.
FIREFIGHTER JON KAUFFMANN CANCER BENEFIT
Our friend and brother Jon Kauffmann needs our help. Jon has been a firefighter on the Minneapolis/St. Paul Airport Fire Department for almost ten years. On February 27th, 2020, he was diagnosed with a very aggressive form of occupational brain cancer, Glioblastoma. After the diagnosis, Jon sought treatment at the Mayo Clinic and immediately started daily radiation treatment with little to no success in slowing the growth of the tumor. He then tried a round of chemotherapy with little to no positive outcomes.
Jon has left a huge hole in the heart of our fire department. His bright smile and positive attitude warmed the room. His presence is sadly missed. Jon has been married for two years to his wife Neeley. Neeley cares for Jon while continuing her career as a high school counselor.
Jon’s occupational cancer claim was denied by workers comp and now the battle continues in court to get his lost wages and medical expenses covered. He needs your financial help to get through these difficult times.
