Daryl Watson's Cancer Fund

Daryl has been diagnosed with cancer in the eye which has the potential to go backward into his brain and needs immediate surgery. The cost of the surgery is estimated to be $250,000 due to the multiple specialists needed to remove the tumor which is operable. Daryl is working to get insurance but has not yet been able to secure it, and he is having trouble finding someone to help him through the maze of red tape to get in and get it done without insurance. We are starting with a $10,000 request to cover immediate expenses related to treatment of the side effects of the tumor and consultations with doctors until a path to surgery is identified. This is urgent, as the tumor is growing and the prognosis is becoming less favorable with each day the surgery is delayed.
June 2018 update: Daryl and his new wonderful wife Kim (Kimberly Pendleton Jones) have been able to get surgery, the eye has been removed along with reconstructive surgery, but the cancer had spread, so Daryl is undergoing daily radiation for 90 days to be followed by additional surgeries. We will be increasing the goal to help offset the escalating costs. Thanks so much for your help, because of the generosity of many, Daryl finally got the help he needed and is moving forward toward recovery!
