The family and friends of Jeffrey Fields are uniting to raise money for his necessary treatments and medical expenses for his brain cancer.


Jeffrey was diagnosed with his initial brain tumor in June of 2005 (Anaplastic Astrocytoma). He had surgery, radiation, chemotherapy and additional radiation the cyberknife. He was in remission for 6 years and the tumor recurred October 2011 as a Glioblastoma. He had his 2nd surgery and after the surgery he went into what's called status epileptus and was in a coma for some time. When he came out of the coma he needed rehabilitation to regain everything he had lost (walking, talking, swallowing, etc). On April 30, 2012 we found out the tumor recurred again in 2 spots and he would need Cyberknife (radiation) and chemotherapy. The doctor's office tried to get pre-approval from the insurance company only to find out the insurance from his employer had ended on May 5, 2012. Needless to say the office phoned us to explain we no longer had insurance and said "good luck" in getting assistance, here's the number for charity care. I applied for Charity Care and NJ Family Care only to be denied because they said Jeff is over the income level. I his wife/caretaker was laid off in July of last year and am currently unemployed. I've tried to understand how it was even possible for him to be over the income level but apparently he is.  As of today Jeff hasn't had the necessary treatments. Jeff has been declared totally disabled but Medicare doesn't kick in for 2 years and the only exceptions that they will make are for those who have been declared terminally ill meaning they have only 6 months or less to live or in hospice care. It is our goal to get him the necessary treatments needed before he needs hospice care. Please help us raise the funds so that we can pay for his necessary medical treatments as well as his mounting medical bills. Any amount donated is greatly appreciated. Thank you all for your donations, support and most importantly prayers. We do believe in miracles and we pray for one each day.

May God bless each of you!!
