Idaho Father needs your help! Cancer Treatment Benefit tonight!

Jason Wolfkiel is a 31 year old father with Familial Melanoma. He has been fighting it for the last 4 years. He and his wife, Jessica (29) have 3 darling young children: Harlie (7), Coleman (4) and William (2).
For the first couple of years Jason had treatments in the Treasure Valley. To be able to afford these treatments the Wolfkiel family sold everything they had including their home in Kuna. For the last 2 years, Jason has been going to the National Cancer Institute in Bethesda , Maryland. Unfortunately, the treatments in Maryland did not yield the results they were hoping and praying for. Jessica has had to work full time , but now she needs to stay home and care for Jason and the kids. Jason is in desperate need of a cancer treatment that is available in Los Angeles . It is an Immune System Therapy called Anti-CTLA. He has no chance of surviving without it, but, they want $45,000 up front, just to start.
Family and friends have started a Jason Wolfkiel Benefit account where others can donate at any US Bank. They have held a bake sale/yard sale and have held a benefit dinner and concert. They have a dinner and an auction scheduled for Aug 21st. They are trying everything they can think of to raise the funds. In total about $25,000.00 has been collected from these events and donations. But that’s not even close to what is needed.
If you're local, come to the Benefit Event Tonight, Aug 21st at Kuna High School Commons. It's a dinner, carnival and auction- all proceeds go to the Wolfkiels and it starts at 5:30. Click the flier for all the details!
