Eric Cipriano's Medical Expenses

   My brother-in-law, Eric Cipriano, was at work Wednesday morning when he complained to a co-worker that he felt dizzy.  He quickly became disoriented and began having a seizure, falling unconscious.  He was rushed by ambulance to CentraState Hospital where he underwent a Catscan and an MRI and was diagnosed with a 5cm brain tumor of suspicious nature.  Yesterday Eric was transferred to Robert Wood Johnson Hospital in New Brunswick and scheduled for emergency brain surgery today, October 6th.  Due to the tumors size and location it is causing swelling on the left side of the brain and there are concerns for Eric's sight, speech and motor skills functioning properly, and the neurologists agree that it has to be removed immediately.
   Many of you already know that our family suddenly and tragically lost our mother last month on September 8th.  Unfortunately Jamie used all of her PTO days to stay by our mom's side as she battled cancer that was discovered while on a family vacation in Florida.  The travel expenses to be with her took a major financial toll on us and it is making this second unexpected tragedy that much more difficult to bear.
   Eric and Jamie are two of the most generous people I know.  They have helped so many of their friends and family and would do anything for anyone.  They have the biggest hearts and never expect anything in return. Eric is one of the hardest workers I have ever met, he lives and breathes for his family and never complains.  His wife and children are his entire world and his personality is the true definition of kindness.  We don't know what we would do without him.
    I am starting this fundraiser so Jamie is given some help to be by her husband's side as he fights for his life.  Medical and home expenses will become near impossible to sustain without Eric's income and with Jamie caring for him.  We ask for everyone's prayers and thoughts during this tough time and any donation anyone can make will be extremely appreciated by our family. 
    I will continue to update you all after surgery.  Thank you from the bottom of our heart.
