Help Fight Ron’s Brain Tumor

After being sick months on end, missing many days of work and completing many tests our worst nightmare has come true. My dad has a brain tumor. There are three possible tumors types, but due to the size and location a biopsy is not possible luckily surgery is.  It is in the fourth ventricle of the posterior fossa. My dad is scheduled to go in for brain surgery for March 15. Unfortunately, with surgery comes a cost and an over three-month recovery. He will most likely be in the hospital for 1 month and another 2 months at home.

My dad has his own business and is the sole support for the family. He is one of the most humble and caring men you will ever meet. He has several clients who aren’t physically able to make it into his barber shop so he takes the time to go to their homes with no additional costs. This is just one small example of his kindness. He has taught me and my sister everyday how to be respectful, generous and loving. My dad now needs help.

My family needs help covering medical and living expenses. Any donation would be appreciated beyond belief. We are so grateful for you all. I look forward to seeing him healthy again and meet his new grandson! Please keep my dad in your prayers!
