Wright Ward's Medical Fund

$21,295 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 214 people in 47 months
On Sept 12, 2015 Wright and I were on our way to watch UGA play Vandy in Nashville. Before the game we stopped to get lunch and Wright had a seizure. After getting to the ER, they did a CT and MRI and found Wright had bleeding in his brain, one large tumor and a few smaller masses spread throughout. He was admitted to the CCU at TriStar Southern Hills. We spent 6 days there anxiously waiting to hear from Emory so that Wright could get the best treatment possible. September 18, we got the good news and Wright was flown to Emory that night. He has surgery scheduled for today (9/21) at 3pm EST to remove a blood clot and the tumor. He will be in the ICU for at least 24 hours, spend 3-4 days in the hospital recovering/doing rehab, go home for 2 weeks to complete recovery, then come back to Emory for a follow up appointment. At that time, we will move into the oncology phase where Wright may receive radiation/chemo. This has yet to be planned out. One step at a time...first the surgery, onto recovery, then move forward with further treatment. The best way to stay updated is through the Caring Bridge journal that I created at  http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/wrightward-updates 


 Wright and I are so appreciative to everyone who has sent us well wishes and prayers. We are so blessed with an amazing support system. Many of you have asked if there is any way to help, and we thought setting up this account would be the best way. 

Love,
Lauran and Wright

It only took a little over 24 hours for us to go beyond our initial goal!! We greatly appreciate the generosity :-)

Wright is a FIGHTER and is doing well. He had an MRI this morning and the surgeon just came in to tell us it looks like both the tumor and blood clot are cleaned out! But we also know Wright has many more smaller tumors that will need to be treated. Also, the pathology report did show melanoma cells in the large tumor....so we will be battling this cancer once again. It will be another long road, but we've done it before and we will do it again! Wright is mentally clear, physically strong and eating a regular diet. We hope to move from ICU to a regular room later today and could be out of the hospital within a few days. Again, we want to say thank you for the prayers and donations!!
