US$4,480.00raised of $5,000.00 goal
Hello friends and family of Robert & Renae Kinghorn! As many of you already know, Robert experienced a seizure while at work on Wednesday, May 25th. He was taken to the hospital and upon further testing, he was diagnosed with a tumor in the speech processing area of his brain. They have seen miracles in the last few days thanks to the prayers that have been offered on their behalf. Robert is scheduled to have an "awake" craniotomy in order to get a biopsy of the tumor & results could take up to 10 days. Specialists from around the country are flying in to perform this procedure. The Kinghorn's have graciously submitted to my request to start this funding page. They are humble and have not asked for anything but prayers at this time but due to the nature of this situation, financial donations are what is needed most to help off-set the mounting medical bills and living expenses. Robert's employer has been so helpful at this time but Robert is unable to work for at least 6 months, at least in the capacity he was prior to his diagnosis. Please consider giving any amount as it would be so helpful to them at this time. Renae is always by Robert's side and is balancing motherhood and being a wife at this critical time.

The oncologist told us that his cancer is incurable but treatable. Even if they had removed the entire tumor it wouldn't have mattered because he has cancer cells all throughout his brain. They are STILL waiting to find out the very specific marker of the cancer to give us his. . . . .

They just wheeled Robert down for an MRI to see how much of the tumor is left in his brain. Recovery, so far, has been interesting to say the least. They warned me that his speech would have deficits but that was an understatement. His comprehension is normal, but he. . . . .

The surgery went great and he is speaking and singing and joking. Renae is visiting with him right now. We extend inexplicable gratitude for all the support and prayers! Robert has felt strengthened throughout this.
