I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer back in June. I am scheduled to have surgery to remove the cancer on August 29th. I had been driving a taxi and had planned to continue til right before the surgery. However the company let me go a the end of July. Since then my car has broken down and is not running. I had it towed back to my RV in Dunn but do not have the money to fix it. I am staying in the RV but the refrigerator is not working. On top of all of this my cell phone decided to quit working. 
      I have doctor appointments before the surgery and during my recovery period which will be at least two months. These medical trips are to New Bern which is over two hours away.
      I have added Michelle Jennette to my account. It says she is beneficiary but she is just handling my money while I have surgery and go through my recovery. GoFund Me does not have an agent option so this is only way she can access the money while I am out of commission.
      I hope to be able to get back on my feet after that. Thank you in advance for your help.

I would like to thank everyone who helped me out during my time of need. I am well on my way to recovery and hope to be back doing some work in the next few weeks. Do not plan to go to taxi as the hours are long and mostly nights. Am pursuing other options and am of course still going to run sound whenever possible

I was hoping to be able to start doing some work by now. However after trying to do some work at Michelle's that should have taken four hours not four days, I have realized that I am not healing as fast as I thought. I am not happy about this, it is just love Je me to spend most of my time lying around. I go back to dr. next week and hopefully get some good news.

Since my update I have ventured out a couple of times; enough to realize I still have a long to go to being healed enough to do much work. And although my insurance pays most of my prescription bill, it does not cover some of my more expensive medical supplies. Some of these will be one time only purchases. Others such as the incontinence supplies are an ongoing necessity so I am not out of the woods yet. I again want to thank all those who gave already helped me through your donations, prayers and thoughts.

I am at home, slowly recovering. Hardest part is retraining myself( let us just say adult diapers are expensive). Other than that I am doing ok. Drove the first time yesterday to the pharmacy drive through.
