Help Tony’s daughter

Tony has passed on 01/06/2018, I had to uproot everything in my life and move to Virginia, I’m trying to go to college before boot camp, I can’t afford all the tuition, I’m falling short on bills and part times jobs don’t pay enough to support myself. I’ve never been on my own before. I don’t know what to do. I need help 







I am a single parent, and I work freelance/self-employed. I've missed considerable time working already, and will miss significantly more time, yet, because I've just had brain surgery. Getting back to work now has been proving difficult so far, just since the biopsy (anti-seizure meds make me tired and make it hard for me to focus), and I'm going to be doing radiation therapy 5 days/week for the next 6 to 8 weeks, starting 20 February, which is only going to make it more difficult.
On 28 January, I had a seizure, and went to the ER at St. Raphael's, where a CT scan and an MRI revealed a brain tumor. I've had a biopsy surgery, which eventually revealed a malignant (cancerous) glioma about the size of a golf ball.
Because I've in otherwise been in excellent shape for an old (46yrs) man with diabetes (I was running c. 40 miles/week before this happened, controlling my diabetes with diet+exercise only), the docs believe we can beat this thing, and possibly see no further complications for 3 to 10 years after radiation.
They're not allowing me to run right now, unless it's indoors on a treadmill (I'm walking a lot, and with your help, have ordered a cheap eliptical trainer to workout in the house). They don't want me to have a seizure miles from the house, alone.
I work primarily as a freelance translator, and they say the radiation could affect the linguistic parts of my brain, which could be bad for work. I also do web development on the side.
They say I'm going to be very tired. I'm going to lose hair, but I'm not too broken up over that...it just means I won't have to run the clippers around my head as often...
I have bills to pay, and a child to feed, and I appreciate all of your help. We have electric heat and owe the electric company $900. I DO have medical insurance, so do not require assistance with medical expenses at this time, just help to pay the utilities and rent, keep food on the table.
Thanks.

URGENT!! It’s been awhile since I’ve asked for any help because I’ve been working and sustaining myself for the last 3 months, but before I can go to Basic Military Training I have something I have to do and with my jobs I just won’t make enough to be able to do it in two weeks. I really really need some help here since being able to go to BMT and swearing into the navy will set up my entire future life career. If someone can help me I want to pay them back because when I come home from training I will have 3 months of pay built up, so please leave me your email or phone number if you could please help me, last time I asked to pay people back no one left me contact information. After BMT I will be fine financially but before then I am broke and I just can’t do anything, if I can’t get such things done before BMT I will be disqualified and won’t be able to join any military ever so please it would mean so so much to me if someone could help - Rhianna Tony’s Daughter

Tony, AMEX should replace your card fairly speedily, and will provide you with an immediate credit for the fraudulent charges (this is my area of expertise, after all.) Here's a little something to help tide you over :)

Hello. Please help. I never ask for donations online. But this is an emergency. My good friend Steve Baldwin has a brother Tony. Tony just had his second brain surgery to remove a tumor. They were able to remove 97 percent of the tumor. Tony is recovering but cannot work yet. The immediate problem: rent. Tony owes $3000 in back rent. His landlord is threatening to evict him if he doesn't pay $3000 in rent by March 10. I have 300 friends on Facebook. If you click on the attached go fund me for Tony and you each donate $10 the problem will be solved. I contributed my part. Can you please donate and help this man from being evicted? Can you please pray for him? Thanks, friends!

Rhianna, So sorry for your loss. I never met your father but had phone conversations with him about Open source translation tools. He was generous and enthusiastic in sharing his knowledge and expertise.
