Donations for Tony

I'm doing this fundraiser for my older brother, Tony, because he NEEDS and deserves help, but will never ask for himself.

Tony was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis many years ago, and has struggled ever since, never reaching remission. His disease has gotten progressively worse over time, rendering him unable to work or play hockey (his passion). I barely even see him anymore, because he rarely feels good enough to go out and do things.

There have been many times he needed care or testing, but couldn't afford the co pays to even go to the doctor. Prescriptions he has needed have gone unfilled for long periods of time due to the expense. He sold his car to fund a very expensive treatment that ended up failing. He has exhausted every possible treatment option with no luck, and it's now time for his first surgery to remove his colon.

This fundraiser is to help Tony with prescriptions, co pays, household bills, groceries, whatever it is that he needs right now. I just want to help him get through this time with a little less stress. He is the kind of person that helps everybody else in any way he can, so please help me help him in his time of need.
