A GoFundMe request

Postby Rocker » Wed Jun 20, 2018 11:18 pm

Admin, please remove if the post violates board rules.



I’ve never done one of these before, and it really, really ****ing sucks that I’m doing one now.

A friend of mine has been having random seizures for a while now. Doctors initially said it was due to a cyst that had formed on the inside of his skull; and were treating it with various medications. Fast forward - the cyst has been reclassified as a tumor after an MRI this evening, and surgery has been scheduled for July 24th. My buddy’s going to get a chunk of his skull taken off. I’m in a position to take care of his family’s lodging during the operation and recovery, but I can’t do much more than that. Anything anyone can do to help out would mean the world to me and to his family.

Thanks, PM. Kevin is a world class, Grade A dude. He’s worked his ass off to make a life for him and his, and to have this happen to him is a real kick in the teeth. I admire the hell out of him, and want to do anything I can to help. I’ll spam every form of social media I can think of for help.

This is really hard to read. Where is Kevin getting treated? Keep us posted. I dont think you broke any rules, this was a kind thought.

Depends on where his doctor wants to do the procedure. They live in a small town in Texas, so they'll be going to one of the big cities, I'm sure. I think Dallas is closest to them. Looking at 3-4 weeks recovery from what his wife tells me. Preliminary date is July 24. I know her, her daughter and mother had a vacation planned to Costa Rica starting the week of the 11th they had been saving up for.

Man, that's rough. This thread is fine though, Rocker. Just as long as there are no t-shirts involved.

My thoughts are with your friend and his family.

Omg that is so awful. Going to donate now. I am so sorry. Do they know if the tumor is benign or not?

No, they don’t know yet. They’re trying to move up the surgery date, and have it done close to Plano.
