On March 27, 2019 Tony Wright, Sr. (Big Tony as most know him) suffered a severe brain aneurysm and was rushed to the hospital.  He underwent multiple surgeries within 24 hours of the aneurysm and remains in critical condition.  Tony's situation is very critical at this point and he is being monitored constantly for changes.   Right now the family needs prayers from all who know them.  We are starting this fund to try to help relieve financial pressure on the family.  Tony
is the primary caretaker of his beautiful wife and two children.   This family needs some financial support as it is unknown how long Tony will be in the hospital and/or rehab and their bills are already mounting.  They are being told that it could be months - if not longer.  Please consider helping this beautiful family.   This is a very close knit family that would help any one they knew out in a time like this.  It is hard for his wife to accept help, but there is no way they can make it through this without our support, prayers and love.  Please give any thing you can - there is no amount too small!  I  have given to gofundme accounts in the past and $5 and $10 add up very fast!  This is a very special family in our community -- LET'S SEE WHAT WE CAN DO TO HELP THEM.  (FYI The site is asking for a tip when you donate - I was able to put "other" and make the tip amount zero).  38158670_1554076570224348_r.jpeg

Thank you all so much for all of your support and sharing of this fund! Kelly, Jade and Tony, Jr. can not thank you enough. They are feeling the love, they are reading your comments and their hearts are full. This family is grieving and their new reality will be most difficult. They are going to have to make financial decision going forward, but now is not the time. Your donations are allowing them time to be together and take this one day at a time. Let's keep sharing this -- It's working. THANK YOU!!!!

It is with such a heavy heart that I let you all know that Big Tony has passed away. The past few days have been the most difficult days of his family's life. Kelly and the kids were informed yesterday that the doctor's were going to be unable to get the pressure and swelling in Tony's brain under control and after many tests, they realized that he was not going to come out of this. This afternoon, he passed. They have decided to donate Tony's organs and right now there is a good possibility Tony Wright, Sr. will be saving the lives of five people. This family is such an inspiration to me and their strength has been unwavering. Thank you all so much for all of the generous contributions you have given. Kelly has no words to express her gratitude and she is overwhelmed by the love and support the family is being shown. These have been her darkest hours and she is feeling the love. It is not in her nature to receive - as she is usually the one giving or taking care of someone else. Big Tony was the main financial provider for their family. Let's share this all over facebook, twitter, snap chat, instagram and everywhere we can to help this family in this most difficult time. Please continue to pray for this wife and these children who have lost their most precious husband and father. THANK YOU ALL!

I just spoke with Kelly - Big Tony's wife. They had to put Tony in a medically induced coma last night. His brain is swelling and they can't get the pressure down. He is on a ventilator and needs your prayers.

As this is the only GoFundMe I have ever started, I have been in contact with the help center a lot today. I need to be clear that everyone knows the money being raised through this site is for the family's needs as they go through this journey. Tony, Sr. is the sole financial provider for the family. The money raised here will be to help the family pay the rent, buy groceries and all normal living expenses that Tony would normally be paying. Right now, Kelly and the kids are trying to process this, make decisions together and stay positive. The amount of support already shown is overwhelming and I know this will grow bigger. His wife thanks you from the bottom of her heart!!
