Curtis Lessley Tumor Surgery Fund

My brother, Curtis, suffered a stroke just before Thanksgiving. While undergoing testing to determine the cause of his stroke, they discovered a tumor on his spine, called Myxopapillary Ependymona. He has suffered severe back pain for a long time, but attributed it to a broken neck he suffered during a motor cycle accident 15 months ago. Discovering the tumor answered many questions as to why his pain has lingered so long after he healed from his accident. Now that he has been diagnosed, he must undergo surgery to remove the tumor. If the surgery is successful, he will be off work for 8 weeks for recovery, longer if they have to sever the nerve to remove the tumor. Curt does not have medical or disability insurance to help him through this difficult time. I am hoping to raise enough funds to cover the cost of his surgery, as well as his living expenses during his recovery period. Any help you can give is greatly appreciated!
