Nathan Stoltzfus was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor after going to the doctor due to recurring headaches.  He will be having surgery within the next few days to remove as much of the tumor as possible.  At this point we don't know how long recovery from the surgery will take, but at the very least he will be missing a few weeks of work.  This campaign is to help cover the loss of income as well as the numerous miscellaneous expenses the family will have.
