Earlier this summer, Tate Foley, a great and longtime friend of ours was hospitalized and after months of hospitalization and traveling all over the mid-west to different hospitals it was determined that he had a cyst in his brain that was creating fluid buildup and required extensive brain surgery, of which a full recovery would take a great deal of time, money and physical therapy.
His wife, Kelly and their two beautiful daughters spent months out of town, first trying to find what the problem was and then ultimately dealing with the surgery that would enable his path to recovery. After a great deal of time and financial sacrifice, Kelly was able to bring our close friend Tate back home to us all. As with most extensive brain surgeries the recovery process can be difficult and during this period of time Tate is physically unable to work.
Though Kelly and Tate remain in high spirits and it is ultimately great that he is back with his family and friends, the recovery process can be overwhelming to a family. As always with Tate, we know he will get there as he has always been a fighter and quitting is not part of his vocabulary. In the meantime, his wife and family is doing everything possible to keep the bills paid and the mortgage current and in times like this, of which many families have gone through, it can be very difficult financially. We know that asking for help is difficult and something Tate would not want to do, but sometimes it is essential to achieve a goal and our goal is one thing...for Tate to fully recover and we want to show him that we are all here to help.
With the help of friends and family, we are throwing a fundraiser/bash for Tate and the Foley family on October 14th in an attempt to raise money donations to help them during these tough times. We are asking everyone to help and there are so many things we can all do.
There are many ways that we all can help:
