Brooks Family Support Fund

On 6/19/2018 my brother Tony Brooks, age 36, was working two hours away from home when he suddenly fell backwards from a ladder.  He fell straight back onto a concrete slab striking both his back and his head.  Unfortunately, Tony's head took the brunt of the blow and the injury.  His co-worker immediately called 911 and Tony was rushed to Mission Memorial Hospital in Asheville.  Tony has since been diagnosed with multiple brain bleeds as well as a temporal facial fracture.  He has been placed in the Neuro ICU where he is both intubated and sedated.  The nurses perform neurological checks on him every two hours and so far his status remains unchanged.  The recovery process for Tony is going to be a long one.  He will have to remain in the ICU until all of the brain bleeds are resolved and he is able to be extubated.  Subsequent to that Tony will, in all likelihood, require both physical and  occupational therapy depending on the extent of trauma his brain has endured from the injuries.  His wife and children live over two hours away and want very much to be at his side during his recovery process.  Tony's wife Melissa and his daughters Hannah, Selena and Ashlee are grateful for the prayers, love and support they have received.   We are asking that you please consider donating whatever you can to support Tony and his family during this extremely difficult time.  Melissa and the girls appreciate anything that can be offered, and are forever grateful for support in all forms.  We would also ask that you continue to keep him in your prayers as he has a long road to recovery.  We thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for your donation.
