Otis McDonald is the McDonald behind McDonald v. City of Chicago. His family is reporting on his Facebook page that he’s battling metastatic cancer, and could use thoughts and prayers:
Mr. Otis McDonald, a man who stood tall for full citizenship rights of all Americans. He stood victoriously at the Supreme Court for the right of every American to protect and defend their family. He stood for us to be safe in our homes. A courageous man who made us proud.
Mr. McDonald is currently in a fight for his life as he battles metastatic cancer. Today, he needs us to unite and stand for him. We are requesting your prayers for Mr. McDonald and his family during this time of his serious illness.
I take their statement as a request to help maintain the family’s privacy, so I did not include contact information, but it’s on the Facebook page.
