Family and Friends of Ed Perry are raising funds to help pay for medical expenses and bills while he is in the hospital.

A few years ago Ed was diagnosed with cirrhosis of the liver. Ed has been experiencing complications from the cirrhosis for around 2 years. About a month ago he had been experiencing more complications than usual. After fighting with many doctors, his blodd was finally tested. Once tested, it was discovered that his platelets were dangerously low. He was immediately admited to the hospital. After some tests he was diagnosed with leukemia. He started chemotherapy right away. He has been in the hospital for about three weeks and it is projected he will remain in the hospital for at least three more. He is currently on a treatment of chemo, platelets and blood. Once Ed receives constant chemp treatment foranother few weeks doctors will decide what to do about his liver. After these constant chemo treatments he will be required to receive treatment every couple of weeks for two years. The liver cirrhosis was not caused by drinking alcohol, Ed was never a heavy drinker. The cause of the cirrhosis is currently unknown. The leukemia may have been caused by the weakening of his liver and toxins not being properly flushed from his body. The cause is also unknown. There are days when Ed can't eat. There are days when Ed can't get up to use the bathroom. We are setting this fundraiser up to raise funds for his medical expenses and bills while he remains in the hospital. Anything is appreciated. 100% will be given directly to Ed and his caretakers to pay his expenses aside from the 5% that the GiveForward website takes. Thank you for your help.
