Scott's Expenses after Surgery

Hi, we are Jonathan and Jessica and our Uncle Scott is undergoing brain surgery next week on May 4th.

2 weeks ago Scott went in for am MRI to investigate why he had lost hearing in one of his ears and why his horrible headaches were suddenly back. The MRI revealed a tumor on his brain that is 4X3.4cm big (think almost the size of an egg) and is affecting 3 of his major nerves as it pushes up against his cerebellum. The neurosurgeon that he met with said the surgery needs to take place as soon as possible before any more damage is done.

Uncle Scott was able to receive Emergency Insurance help for the surgery and medical costs themselves,  but is in need of help with living expenses while he recovers from his surgery that was finally scheduled for next week. The money we raise will help Scott pay his rent, regular bills, groceries, and any medical incidentals that happen afterward for the months to come after the surgery. We are unsure of how long the recovery will be. Brain surgery is a complicated thing! We would like to be able to gift Scott the money as soon as we can raise it.

We would really appreciate any amount you can donate to our Uncle's cause. This is not something anyone expects to go through, nor would want their family going through either. 

A whole lot of prayers have been answered so far, would you help us answer this one, too, and bless our Uncle?

Thank you so much for your donations! And please share this link to your social media to help us spread the word!
