Back surgery for Big 5

unfortunately it's looking like Big 5 is going to have to have back surgery. He has a herniated disc, as well as a pinched sciatic nerve, he can barley walk, and is in excruciating pain through-out the day. The doctors say he needs surgery ASAP in order to prevent further and even more permanent damage. He has a wife, Tiffany, and 16 moth old daughter, Lola who he provides for. He is currently unable to tattoo. Because of the pinched nerve and herniated disc, he cannot feel his lower left half, and has to be laid up in bed most of the day. Medical bills are expected to be in the 30k range, but every dollar helps a lot more then you would expect. He has done some amazing work for 20 plus years, put his blood and sweat into his art to give people tattoos they can love and carry with them for a lifetime. If you know big 5, you already know he is a hardworking, god fearing, caring, humble family man, and even if you don't know him, a little donation would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, and to consider helping some who really needs some help. 100% of donations will go towards Big 5's surgery.
