This is the Darrell A. Willis Sr Brain Tumor Treatment Fund. The funds will be used for Darrell's medical costs and related expenses.

Though my memory has been diminishing, I still am able to recall the horrific fall from a ladder accident I suffered while at work on July 16th, 2010. As I reflect back, I can still hear the sounds of the ambulance and voices of the Emergency care workers trying to keep me awake fearing my head injury. After arriving at Abington Memorial Trauma Center, I under went a series of tests to include X-rays and a CAT scan. I thought about which event was worse the fall from the ladder or the emotional fall I suffered from the news the Doctor revealed to me that I had a brain tumor. I couldn't tell my mother about my condition as she lay Paralyzed for the neck down, totally incapacitated and without the ability of speak resulting from her stroke. It has been such turmoil for me not to be able to disclose all my Medical concerns to my caring sister Kia because she is totally disabled with heart ailments and can not process ill news well at all. I'm too afraid to discuss the matter with my young son based on the reaction and tear-filled eyes of my daughter after I shared the God awful news with her. My son’s mother has tried feverishly to find a modern medical miracle for me but her efforts were fruitless by me not being able to afford the health care coverage. Conveying the message of my health dilemma with my closest uncle Jacky whom I loved dearly would have been perfect but he died from a second bout with Cancer shortly after my diagnosis. I have held my most inner fears inside about my personal trials until now as I have no Medical insurance to meet the staggering costs of my treatments. My prayer is that God in Heaven will bless each and every person who took the irreplaceable time to read my story and that you are never stricken with illness. The headaches I’m experiencing right now are so bad that I must bring this writing to a close. All financial gifts and donations will be acknowledged and appreciated.
