It is with a heavy heart that I request your assistance in helping my great friend Anthony (@Tony@Wardie) Ward and his family. I have been close friends with Anthony for nearly 30 years and can honestly say that he is one of the most loyal and kind people I know. He has a loving wife Sarah and 10 year old son Sam, who suffers from dyslexia. He has had many personal struggles in his life which he has overcome, but now he faces a likely insurmountable battle with Motor Neurone Disease. Anthony was diagnosed with the disease earlier this month (April 2019), after unusual symptoms continued to develop in the context of what was thought to be simply a back injury. Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is a horrible and terminal disease where the sufferer's motor neurons degenerate and muscles waste away. Sufferers gradually lose all body motor function and eventually pass away. There is no known cure for MND. Clearly Tony cant work and, to add to this sad story, Tony was made redundant earlier in the year, so has no related benefits. Your financial assistance is requested in helping Tony and his family get through this terrible situation as comfortably as possible. Tony will require significant and increasing care through the progression of this disease and there are a number of things (e.g. a vehicle with wheelchair accessibility $25-30K) that will help to optimise his comfort and contentment in the time he has left. I ask that you open your heart and 'givealittle' where you can.

Corey LANE's involvement (page creator)

Sarah is my best friend Tony's wife. Tony has just been diagnosed with Motor Neurone disease which occurs in 0.000045% of the population and in all cases is terminal. Tony now cannot work and they have a young son, Sam. They are experiencing financial hardship, and will need some assistance to keep their head above water and buy the things necessary to make Tony's departure as comfortable as can be.

Use of funds

Living expenses and costs associated with Tony's comfort and care.
