The family of Gene Clayton are uniting to raise money to help cover his emergency medical bills.

Gene (Geno) had to have emergency surgery, He had over a foot of his large intestines removed due to an infection and diverticulitis that ruptured. He does not have health insurance. Please help offset/assist with medical/daily living expenses to alleviate the financial burden. This will help him focus on fighting the fight of his recovery! Relieving a lot of stress off of him about the bills that are going to be coming in due to the emergency surgery, long hospital stay, and medications. Also follow up appointments which he will not be able to go to without having the cash up front.

Why we don't have insurance is Gene was laid off of his job 3 years ago because of the economy, after looking for work for almost a year with no success, he started doing odd jobs for people making just enough to get us by. My (Teresa) jobs insurance is insane, I would have to pay over half my paycheck each pay period to get limited coverage, which is well visits, prescriptions only. And we could not afford loosing $700 a month for it. Which wouldn't have helped for this any ways.

We don't know what the total expenses are going to be - but we HAD to get something started.

The costs to maintain daily living expenses while he fights to get better are continually mounting. It is important that Gene and his family focus all of their energy and strength on winning this battle.

We are raising money to offset/assist with these expenses. Our hope is that we alleviate that financial burden so Gene can concentrate on getting better.
