Anthony has not been feeling good in the past few weeks at work and after multiple talks with friends and co-workers he decided to find out what is going on.  The visit to the doctor went as expected and multiple medications has been changed so he thought his body was going thru some changes and wasnt quite concerned.  He had thought his body needed more time to adjust to the new medications but the next day after getting his blood drawn he was told by the doctor to get to the nearest emergency room asap because something was wrong.  After 2 more blood tests were given (just to make sure the numbers weren't mixed up) he was admitted into Memorial Hospital in Chattanooga, TN for immediate treatment.   His current chemotherapy is 

Cytarabine (Ara-c)
Idarubicin (Idamycin)
Cladribine (Leustatin).

Nobody can possibly be prepared to hear the expiration date of his or her life but that estimation date was given to my dear friend if the chemotherapy wasnt successfull.  As you can imagine, it is a horrible feeling and our hearts are literally breaking for him. 

Anthony and his soon to be wife April Beale were hoping to get married soon and were just about to put the deposit down on the wedding venue this week when all of the sudden their plans went from bliss to absolute horror.  Although his 2 children are adults now, they rushed to be by his side when the news broke.  Anthony has always been a devoted father and remains that way even though he is up against the fight of his life.  Briann Paisley (daughter) and Austin Paisley (son) are seen in the recent photo posted by his side.  

We are not only asking for donations to help him and his soon to be wife in their life changing struggle ahead but we are asking for prayers also.  It is not clear if Anthony had health insurance and from our conversations he has expressed a great deal of concern for his financial situation.  He is worried about his home, his soon to be wife and his pets (who we all know are family) and more.  Obviously he will not be able to work and without some kind of assistance they are in danger of losing everything they have worked for.   Any and all donations will go strictly to the Paisley family for medical costs and living expenses.  Anthony has 1 more paycheck coming and after that they will not have any source of income.  This is not a concern they should be worried about.  He needs to focus himself for the fight to survive so please share this story and every donation will help him and his family with the uncertain future that awaits them.  

Thank you for just taking the time to read his story.  Please share this story to anyone and everyone.  Together, we can help the Paisleys in their time of need.  Our goal is set for 10,000 and we know he will be swamped with medical bills on top of normal living expenses.  Anything helps.
