The family and friends of Maurice Hale are uniting to raise money to help with his battle against multiple myeloma.

My Name is Maurice Hale.I would like to start out by saying that I am a husband and a father of 4 children, 3 that live with me and my wife. I am currently unemployed and fighting for disability, which is a challenge all on its on. My wife who has stood by me through all this, is no longer employed due to the store she worked at closing.

I have had many medical complications since June 2011. I Have stage IV Kidney Disease, Suffered my first stroke in June 2011. I was then diagnosed with partial epilepsy, In Nov. 2011 I was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, a cancer that affects the plasma cells made in bone marrow,There are days where I can barely walk and suffer from sever pain in my bones.

The only cure is an Autologous Stem cell transplant. I have been undergoing chemotherapy in the city where I live. My wife and I have been having to drive back and forth to the Winship Cancer Institute located in Atlanta Georgia. This is about 100 miles one way from where we live. My transplant is coming up soon and we have to be able to afford travel expenses, lodging, and medical care/medicines. I am required to stay 2 weeks in the area after the transplant. We were told that the transplant cost anywhere from $75,000.00-$400,000.00 depending on what goes on. The medicines and care required during and after my transplant is costly.

If you are uncomfortable donating on-line, you can also mail any donations to 346 N. Airport Cir NW Resaca Georgia 30735 C/O Brandy Hale
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
