Terrence's Stroke Recovery Fund

A few days after Thanksgiving Terrence started to notice he was slurring his words accompanied with weakness on his right side. Due to never having experienced these  symptoms he decided to wait it out and see if the symptoms would dissipate. Unfortunately they would not as he had experienced a stroke. After 3 days Terrence decided to go in to the doctor to see what was going on with his speech and his body. Amazingly the doctors office instead of calling an ambulance told him to drive himself to emergency. (That's a whole different story in itself) but anyway Terrence drove himself to Desert Banner Hospital in Mesa, Az. and they did confirm he indeed had a stroke. Terrence got progressively worse while in the hospital as his right side got substantially weaker and he was no longer able to walk or even get out of bed on his own.  After about a week in Desert Banner receiving treatment to dissipate the clot in his brain Terrence was moved to St Lukes Acute Rehabiliation Center in Phoenix, AZ to begin his recovery. Terrence will be undergoing a series of rehabilitaion exercises and a medicinal regimines in an effort to get him as close as possible to himself before he had the stroke. He will be in recovery until approximately December 19th  2017. Needless to say bills have continue to come and payments are still due. The funds that are being requested will be used to pay rent, car note and additonal medical expenses needed for recovery after Terrence is released from rehabilitation at St. Lukes. Other was to help include sharing this GoFundMe Campaign and/or sending gift cards that can be used for basic necessity items. Items can be sent to 5350 E Taylor St. APT#126 Phoenix AZ. 85008. To all potential donors, please understand this campaign is a last resort as putting your business out there and asking for help can make you feel shameful and  embarrassed; however due to these urgent circumstances Terrence has decided to humble himself and ask for help. Truth be told without your help Terrence will not only be recovering from a stroke but he will also have to recover from financial ruin at the same time. Our goal is to get the specified funds by the end of 2017, so please consider contributing to this campaign immediately. Thank you and God Bless!
