Tylers eye surgery & recovery

Hi everyone, thank you for checking out my go fund me page. I am doing this account for my little brother. Tyler is a amazing guy, he works so hard, If you know my brother you will know how kind he is, with such a amazing outlook on life and the kindest heart.. unfortunately he has suffered with a eye disease his entire life called juvenille x-linked retinoshisis which affects both eyes.  As he has grown up he has ended up with more eye diseases.  Tylers diagnoses are:  Juvenille X-Linked Retinoshisis, Coats Disease .  His Coats Disease is in his left (bad - blind eye).  He now has tumors in his right eye.  He also has inflammation in his right eye.  The doctors are hoping that by  removing his blind (left) the inflammation goes down in his right eye.  They will not know if removing the left eye is helpful or not until it's removed to be put under a microscope.  If it proves that removing is good then great but if not, they are back to the drawing board to try to figure out what is going on in his only seeing eye. These diseases are very rare. Tyler will be going for eye removal surgery November 1. He has to be off work now for the foreseeable future.  he will be losing his wages, the medical system also only covers a portion of fitting a fake eye in. We need your help to help him cover his cost of living, and expenses. Our family is pulling together as much as we can, unfortunately we cant cover all costs, which is truly heartbreaking. My brother has so much stress over all this and then on top of it all stressing about money. Plus he might never be able to go back to the line of work he does, and will more than likely need to be retrained in a whole new line of work.. my wish is to relieve some of the financial stresses on him, so he can just worry about healing himself. If you cant help financially, pls share this and keep my brother in all your thoughts and prayers.
