This is my papa Wayne. He is a wonderful person who has had a run of bad luck. He was having diffucutlies lifting his arm then from there it affected his leg. Over 1yr the doctors tried to figure out what was going  on but couldn't :( finally a doctor ran an MRI (mind you he has no medical insurance because he couldn't afford it and the new medical system was not in place yet). The MRI revealed he has a tumor at the base of his skull. It was horrible news hit at least know we know. He couldn't have surgery in Rapid City South Dakota. Surgery had to be done by more specialist. They sent him to the Mayo Clinic where they wasted no time. They said without the surgery he would die in 3months. So they did emergency surgery which cost $150,000.00 in June 2013. Approx two months later he had to go back for another procedure call gamma knife and it was another $90,000.00. Now he has the medical insurance he so desperately needed but the bills are already there. He only makes $30,000.00 a year and $10,000.00 has to go to the medical bills. Please he is a wonderful papa, great grandfather! He helps me and my kids when ever we need it and I am nor biologically his but he treats me like I am! Please every little bit helps .
