Medical expenses for Tony Hooker



My name is Brandon and I am the boyfriend of Katie Hooker, Tony Hooker's youngest daughter.  I've been dating Katie for six months and have seen Tony fight this battle ever since. Unfortunately, his wife, Rhonda, and two daughters, Alison and Katie, have been struggling in this fight with him for sixteen months also. In late February 2016, Tony presented with facial drooping and confusion. An MRI was ordered by his family physician that later showed a brain mass in his frontal lobe. It's called a glioblastoma, one of the most aggressive brain tumors to exist. He has undergone surgery, 6 weeks of radiation, 8 weeks of oral chemo, numero
us platelet transfusions, speech therapy, physical therapy, and steroid therapy. He now is undergoing another set of IV chemo every three weeks. He also wears a cap on his head at least 18 hours a day that is killing the tumor. This has brought him to be practically total care. He is confined to a wheelchair.  His family uses a hydraulic lift to maneuver him in the home. Insurance has not covered home health needs (CNA is paid for out of pocket). The family is currently in need of a handicap van to transport Tony to appointments, treatments and most importantly church.  The family also plans to host benefits to raise funds, too. They would appreciate any help you could offer.
Thanks and God Bless,

Brandon
