In June of 2013 I was rushed to the hospital suffering from unbelievable head pain , turned out to be a schwanomma tumor of the 3rd cranial nerve within the cavernous sinus area within my brain that was hemmorging . This tumor also caused me to lose vision and use of my left eye . The location of this tumor was in such a dangerous spot that nobody on the east coast wanted to attempt surgery . This led me to a skull base surgeon located in California who was willing to help me to remove this tumor , however my insurance only covers 60% of the well over $300,000.00 surgery to save my life ! I had this surgery in February of 2013 and the tumor was removed , however it caused such damage to the 3rd cranial nerve that I am still left with unbearable daily pain and I'm still blind in my left eye . This has affected my daily life and family as well as my job . The pain makes it very hard to do what I need to do to support my family and has left us in a very uncertain future . Our medical bills from all of this are through the roof to say the least and I am now forced to endure daily threats and legal action against me for not being able to pay for these medical bills . On top of this I need continued treatment and may be facing more dangerous surgery . I need help desperately and I would be so eternally grateful for any and all help I may receive . This is not like me to ask for help but at this point I do not know where else to turn . So please if you can find it in your heart to donate any amount to my cause , I would be so greatful ! Thank you from the bottom of my heart in advance of any help I may receive and God Bless !!! This money that I need will help towards my continued treatment and to pay down the medical costs and hopefully help to restore me to a normal life so I can live and work to support my wife and 2 children . Thank you so very much !!
