Oz Fox Needs Your Help

$139,743 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 1,409 people in 1 month
Created August 14, 2018
While performing on stage in Las Vegas, on August 12th, 2018 at approximately 12:30 am Oz Fox had a seizure on stage.  He was taken to the hospital to stabilize his vitals and was given a CAT scan & MRI.  Results showed that he had 2 masses in his head, one by his ear and the other in the back of his brain. The next day he was given a spinal tap. Results stated he had no infections in his spine, so now Oz will go under testing for brain surgery biopsies. 

At this time, the procedures that need to be done will not be covered on insurance. We are in the process of attempting to get him coverage, but in the meantime, his hospital bills are piling up at an enormous rate! We don't know how much the brain biopsies will cost, nor what will happen when we get the results back--whether he will need more surgery to remove any tumors or treatment plans for healing.  

Oz cannot drive, fly or work for 3 months because of the potential seizures. Stryper has had to cancel some of the shows out of the country because Oz cannot perform due to his medical condition. 

Anything that is given will go directly to the costs incurred to help to Oz & Annie with medical bills and supplement any income lost. 

Oz has been in Stryper for over 30 years as a founding member and is in many different bands in Las Vegas—Sin City Sinners, Hart Attack & Bloodgood. God has used his joy filled soul and zest for life in so many ways with countless people! When you meet Oz--you feel like you've known him all your life! He is a wonderful son, dad, husband, musician, but most of all a faithful, reliable and a loyal friend.  He would give his shirt off his back to help anyone in need--that’s who he is. Oz truely has a heart of gold!

Oz would like to sincerely thank everyone—he is overwhelmed with the support that’s been shown so far—he didn’t know so many people would care so deeply.

We love you all! Your love, support & concern has meant more than you know. We trust God and not the results! Please continue to lift Oz up in prayer for total healing & restoration~Annie (wife of Oz)

Oz Update 12: EEG Test

Oz went to one of his neurologist yesterday to talk about his EEG test to be taken and reducing his medication.

1. His doctor said they will allow him to get his medication slightly lowered...this is great news!
2. Test for EEG was done today to see the electrical activity around his tumors in his brain. Results will be in next week with new follow up appointment.
3. Doctor gave Oz some good news...he can step out and try a (to play) a little before he leaves on tour for Stryper in October! He needs adequate rest & to make sure he is not stressed out. This will insure he is ready for tour with Stryper & there will be no complications that arise.

Oz is very happy about this!

“Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.” Mark 11:24

So thank you for all your prayers! They are working!

We love & appreciate all!

Annie & Oz

Oz update: 11! Exciting News Flash!

We have doctor appointment news!

1. Oz will be getting an MRI to see if the tumors have grown OR shrunk September 25th. We pray the latter!

2. On September 28th, He will also be going to a seizure neurologist specialist to get an EKG scheduled & to see if the meds can be switched or decreased.

3. We are patiently waiting for the head, throat & nose specialist to give an audio test to Oz’s tumor near his inner ear/brain, to see if this can be worked on/watched/or helped.

Can you agree with us in prayer that all the doctor tests and reports come back in Oz’s favor? We believe that God is STILL in the miracle working business...and He is about to show His power!

And in other news...Michael Sweet, Lisa Sweet, Lena Sweet & Perry Richardson all took a special out of the way trip & flew to Vegas before Stryper’s show at Rocktember (in Minnesota) to come & cheer Oz up with dinner & a lot of love. It meant so much to us to see our good friends come & support us during this time...we love them so much! Even though Oz cannot be there to play (doctors orders) he is happy the show will go on without him with Stryper’s friend Howie Simon. (Thank you Howie for blessing us with your talent & stepping up)

We love you all...and sincerely thank you for all your care, concern, love & support! We couldn’t do this without you! You have been more amazing than we can express in this tiny little space!

Sincerely,

Annie & Ozzie

Oz Fox Update 10: Destiny House hang time!

Oz woke up to get ready for church & said:
“I want to hang out with the Destiny House ladies & you—let’s take them to lunch!”

So we did! Ate some delicious KETO friendly food, hung out with the ladies and took them shopping at Bath & Bodyworks, and treated them to a Starbucks. The ladies were so happy to see him and it made their Labor Day weekend extra special.

See pic of Oz below of eating adventure. (Note: faces blurred of some Destiny House residents for identity purposes)

1. KETO diet update: Oz is down 12 pounds! 14 more to go! (He wants to get down to 172)

2. We will be hearing from several doctors tomorrow, so please lift it up in prayer!

3. Some of the medical bills came in, (HUGE) and we will be starting the process of working with the medical treatment costs & payments to be made. Please also pray for favor!

4. If you or someone knows of alternative treatments for brain tumors, please inbox me on Facebook or email me at annie@hookersforjesus.net

Oz update: 8 Thankful!

Oz wanted me to let all everyone know:

“I’m very overwhelmed & humbled by everyone’s support. I’m so thankful for everyone who has helped out. I appreciate all the prayers.
The medication has been tough to deal with. I know more tests are coming & hopefully they will be able to lower my dosage. Then I can get back to doing what I do.”

Last night was hard, Oz wasn’t feeling well & was not too excited about taking his medication for seizures.

We are waiting for the docs to schedule more tests. Patience is truely a virtue!

Let your hope keep you joyful, be patient in your troubles, and pray at all times~Romans 12:12

Hope: We have hope in Jesus—that He will keep us focused on what’s important, His love.

Joyful: We purpose to be joy filled as we trust God for the results of all testing on Oz.

Patient: We don’t rush God, the doctors or anything else during this healing process. Take each day one day at a time!

Prayer: We wake up each day and pray to hear God’s direction He has for us & go to bed thankful we made it through another day!

Today Starri & Robert Sweet & fam showed up to cheer Oz on. He was so happy they came & so was I! We love them & are so thankful for their friendship.

We again ask for prayer as we wait for God’s next move for us!

Thank you again for all your amazing support & beautiful letters, cards & smiling faces!

Love you~Annie & Oz
