Tony Hoffman is now 54, but at age 35 he was diagnosed with stage 4 Colon Cancer which has left him to live with a colostomy. Soon after his amazing recovery from Colon Cancer he then was diagnosed with Liver Cancer and beat that one as well. He then continued to struggle with bowel obstructions and had a couple more surgeries to continue to remove more of his intestines. After surviving 2 cancers he is now suffering from significant difficulties with stricture disease, bladder outlet obstruction, recurrent urinary tract infections and renal insufficiency. He has a poorly functioning right kidney owing to a congenital abnormality that has become chronically infected. This kidney needs to be removed right away and with the extent of his other surgeries it is a much more complicated surgery. Soon after the removal of his kidney he will then undergo yet another surgery to reconstruct the area of the bulbar urethra which is chronically scarred and results in significant outlet obstruction and threatens his entire kidney function process.
Tony does not have health insurance and his profession is Truck Driving which is very difficult on his health. Since he has continued to try to stay employed he is not eligible for any type of assistance until he is not working for 5 months in which time Social Security will consider his case. And with these urgent surgeries he will not be able to work at all. The medical bills he has now are overwhelming and the cost of the new surgeries will be extreme.
We are trying to help him with medical and living expenses to get him through this tough time and help him continue to fight. I am Tony's sister and have been with him through his battles and he is braver than anyone I have ever seen in my life, he has gone through too much to lose his battle now.
Please join in donating anything you can to help Tony finally have some quality of life!
