Fundraiser for Curtis Honeycutt

100% of my commission will be donated to Curtis and Stacey Honeycutt. From Stacey Honeycutt.... Sickness has hit my husband. Due to many years of providing for our family. Curtis has been such a inspiring person for many people. For me he has always been my rock, and dependance. Curtis has been sick going on for over a month with stomach issues. Multiple trips to the doctor and several tests. Finally the doctors called July 10th with results of emergency gallbladder surgery. They removed his gallbladder July 12th with suspicion and sent it off for cancer tests. Prior to this sickness Curtis has had major issues with his hip and back. After multiple attempts to make corrections without surgery. His L4 and L5 in his lower back is in process of collapsing to cutting nerves off that operate the motor skills in his legs. Without this surgery he will be wheel chair ridden. On July 21st he will have a operation thru his belly consisting of a large bone fusion to the front of his spine. Again on July 25th he will have another surgery thru his back with 2 small bone fusions to hopefully correcting the problem. This surgery will consist of a contentious stay in the hospital. Doctors recommending recovery time with good luck 6 months. Curtis being the main source that provides a roof over our heads and food on the table. He's employed with good benefits that is helping with the majority of his doctor bills. In result to the surgery Curtis will be out of work for 6 months. Luckily he has short term disability but due to the amount that he will receive after we pay his insurance and tax the income it leaves a very small amount. Many people have asked me if there is anything that we need. It aches my heart but any amount donation that anyone would like to give would be a blessing. Thank you, God bless each and everyone of you for reading my story. We know that God will provide for us and it's no secret to what we have to face moving forward.
