Jake Gerard, the local owner of the online adult store Bedroom Box, and recently featured on SFGN’s “A Day in LGBT South Florida,” has launched a GoFundMe page to raise funds to help pay for his Lymphoma cancer treatment.
“I will be going thru 6 chemotherapy treatments - 1 every 3 weeks then, 4 weeks of radiation 5x a week. It will be hard on friends, family, and I so any help will be most appreciated,” the page states.
Links to Gerard’s GoFundMe have been posted on the Wilton Manors Facebook page by his associates.
Gerard states on the page that, unable to work during treatment, he will have to suspend his business and move into his family’s house for the six to seven months of treatment.
At the time of writing, Gerard has met $1,145 of his $5,000 goal.
