Willie Hall is fighting hard against grade 4 brain cancer. Help him fight his rising medical bills and keep his family in their home!

Willie Hall was diagnosed with Grade 4 brain cancer in November of 2011. Within hours of his first scans, he was undergoing emergency surgery to save his life. Miraculously Willie not only survived the surgery, but when he awoke he was able to wiggle all his fingers and toes, retained his sense of humor and indomitable personality. Cognitive tests showed a complete retention of function. This type of recovery is almost unheard of and speaks not only to Willies lifelong commitment to being healthy but his positive attitude and supporting family.

Willie then began a multi-week arduous journey of daily chemo and radiation treatments. While Willie is now back at work, the initial treatment did not place his cancer into remission. He faces months more of intense chemotherapy weeks with a few weeks off in between each session.

As so many of us come to find out the hard way, even with good medical insurance, Willie has to cover at least 20% of his treatment costs out of pocket, and pay doctors and pharmacies up front. As the primary breadwinner for his family, Willie is fortunate to be able to work full time. But even with this blessing and the blessing of health insurance, the thousands of dollars per week in doctor visits, treatments, test, and medication are taking a toll on the Hall family finances.

Willie has dug into his couch cushions and dusted off those pennies. Now he needs our help so he can keep his family in their home and finish his journey back to full health.

Please give some support to Willie. He has given so much of himself to all of us over the years, both personally and professionally. Many of us have reached to Willie for help and no matter what he is always right there. Many of us have seen our paychecks increase because of Willie's professional skills. And for those of us who have had the luck of getting to know Willie personally, he has forever touched our lives in a positive way.
