Marty Craig's cancer fund
Organized by: Terri Capozziello
Marty CRAIG was looking forward to bringing in 2016 with bright hopes of a wonderful and better times for the 2016 New year. Unfortunately he went to the hospital emergency room on December 30,2015 with a painful cough. He was admitted on new years eve with a collasped lung. Bummer huh. But not too bad to cause extreme worry. WRONG !#!# There was numerous testing and a total of 4 different doctors all running tests. And very evasive.....8 DAYS LATER HE IS RELEASED WITH LIVER CANCER. HE WAS TOLD HE'D have to wait 7 days for biopsy results. While I had been there thru it all and was burden with the knowledge one doctor informed me..STAGE 4 LIVER CANCER!!!# Marty was told what the doctors beliefs where and that the biopsy was just a ruiten test. He left the hospital dazed confused numb. Marty had no place of solitude he could go to because Marty Craig is homeless. And stays at the local homeless shelter. Marty's only income is social security. Of $500 per month for his survival. He has been referred to CANCER Center in North Aurora...and an appointment to Loyola hospital. I have been with Marty 12 years and we are looking into renting room at area hotel for a month so he has basic comforts and a base to move around to doctors and treatments
