Please Help A Fellow Dad Blogger To #LiveFightWin

I’m doing a modified version of Dad Blogs Exposed this week because a fellow Dad blogger has received some bad news and I want to try to help any way I can. This week’s feature is about John Taylor, aka The Daddy Yo Dude.

John was recently diagnosed with cancer and will begin treatment this coming week. He is the dad of two amazing, wonderful, beautiful, but also independent, snarky, and opinionated children. They are aged 5 and 3. He is a stay-at-home-dad, part-time blogger, house cleaner, pull up changer, dinner maker, and craft fanatic. All of these things that will get harder as treatment goes on.

Anyone who has gone through any sort of battle with cancer, knows that the medical bills pile up quickly. That’s why today I am asking you all for your help. If you can visit John’s “Live. Fight. Win.” Page and donate anything you have to spare, I’m sure John and his young family would really appreciate it.

Even if all you can afford to do is spread the word, it would be greatly appreciated. Also, feel free to visit John on Twitter @TheDaddyYoDude or on his Tumblr Page. He’s a really nice guy and a great dad and I’m sure he’d appreciate the well wishes.

Thanks for your time and help! It’s times like these that I am greatful to be a part of such an amazing blogging community. Let’s show John what we can do when we band together to support and protect one of our own!

    Wow, what can I say dude? Thank you, thank you, thank you. It is great being part of such an awesome community, isn’t it? I don’t know where I would be without the encouragement and support from you, and from many others out in the blogging and social media world.

    Thank you so much for sharing the word and for your words of encouragement.

    Live. Fight. Win.

      Anytime, John! Sometimes we forget that blogging isn’t all about page views and sponsorships, and that there is a very amazing human side to it. I have enjoyed getting to know everyone in the blogging community so far and I wish you the best of luck in your fight! We’ve got your back, yo!

    John, I’m wishing you strength and good luck in your fight.

    How does that song go?…”I just met you, and this is crazy. So here’s my number…” You get the idea. My kids are still walking around singing that song, driving it into Dad’s head. Catchy tune. The point (found it) is that I don’t know you but I’ll gladly spread the word about your fight and help to wish you well. Stay strong and win.

    John: so sorry to hear this. I don’t know you but I know Chris and I support you in your battle. I wish you the strength to fight this. Cancer is a world class asshole. It sickens me how many of my lived ones have had to battle cancer diagnoses.

    How absolutely fabulous of you to share this with everyone.
    While I don’t have any extra cash, I do have the means to spread the word.
    God bless John and his family, praying for his health to return and his family to be together in health and happiness for a long time.
