Sifu Tony Morel's Fund

As many of you are already aware, Tony has recently suffered from two heart attacks. One was relatively minor, while the other was a major heart attack that required two stints to be inserted into his heart. In addition to the heart problems, he caught pneumonia, and was fighting through both kidneys beginning to fail; which led to him having to be put on dialysis. In total, he spent twenty days in the hospital with ten of those days being held in the ICU. He has been running the Yama-Kan-Self-Defense School since 1996, and continued to do so from his hospital bed. During his stay in the hospital his bills kept growing and growing. The goal of this fundraising is to help Tony with keeping his dojo doors open to continue the work that he loves and has dedicated his life to, and to aid in any and all bills that may have accrued. Any help that anyone can provide would be appreciated beyond measure., be it financial support or through sharing this page with others. Thank you!
