This fund is for my brother Butch Joyner and sister-in-law Stacy. As of Thursday, April 9 Butch has been in the hospital. What started as a bloody nose that wouldn't stop, has now turned into a much more critical case.
When the local ER ran some blood tests, they found that his blood platelets were way down and immediately transferred Butch to a Trauma 2 Hospital in Medesto. His blood platelets, which should have been well over 100, were about 1. He had a bone biopsy done today, Tuesday, April 14 and we have been told that we won't know anything until the preliminary results come back in a couple of days. In the meantime, Butch and Stacy just have to wait. Intial treatments have been unsuccessful so far, but the doctors are still working on finding an answer.
Since Butch has retired, funds are limited. Butch & Stacy are blessed to have a loving family and community that have already started pulling together to help them out with whatever they can. If you are able to contribute to help with the many current and up coming expenses, it will be greatly appreciated!
Those of you who know Butch personally, know what an awesome guy he is! This has shocked us all and we want to help out in any way that we can! Please help if you are able!
