    Default GPWA Anthony - Surgery Needed

    GPWA Anthony Needs Almost Immediate Surgery to Prevent Paralysis


    A few years ago, Anthony began to have tingling and numbness on the left side of his body. He thought he was having a stroke and went to the hospital. Thankfully, after numerous tests the doctors were able to rule out a stroke. Some time later, he started to have tingling and tightness in his chest and believed he was having a heart attack. Again, he went to the hospital. And again, they ruled out a heart attack. Instead, it was revealed that he has a serious condition called spinal stenosis, where the spinal cord in his neck is narrowing.

    The disruption in the flow of spinal fluid, combined with the closeness to major blood vessels and nerves, can mimic symptoms of a stroke or heart attack. If left untreated, the spinal cord will eventually become compressed to the point of strangulation or rupture. The end result would be Anthony becoming paralyzed from the neck down. Over the last 5 years, he has had several of these attacks and has accumulated tens of thousands in medical debt. This is why I am reaching out to the GPWA community now, so we can help Anthony with these expenses.

    Anthony and his doctors have fought for months with the insurance company and were finally able to get approval for the surgery to repair his neck. This surgery is extremely expensive. His out of pocket costs after insurance will be $13,500. He will be immobilized and bedridden for weeks following the procedure, and his neck will be in a brace for several more weeks after that. He will be unable to drive or care for himself for quite a while.

    The surgeons will be forced to cut through Anthony's neck from the front to reach his spine. The plan is to replace up to 2 vertebra and 6 inter vertebral disks. Additionally, Anthony will need to have a titanium plate inserted into his neck. While this plate adds strength and support, it will leave him unable to have the full use of his neck for the rest of his life.

    Anthony has done a lot for this industry. Over the years he has helped hundreds of affiliates collect millions in commissions they were owed, as well as working with and assisting affiliate managers and programs. His life will be changed forever, but we can help make it more financially bearable for him and his family. He is meeting with his surgeons next week to schedule the procedure and I will be updating this page as he goes through this.

    Thanks, everyone... Jay Todd

    In an effort to get some additional money contributed to a very worthy cause ThePOGG.com will be posting an article recognising any businesses that contribute more than $300 towards Anthony's medical expenses. (Assuming of course that Anthony/JTodd are happy to provide information/verify the contributors)

    It's great to see so many people having contributed already but I really hope that we can help offset a good bit more of this bill. No-one should have to face choosing between debt and health.

    I am grateful for the efforts, contributions plus the thoughts and prayers I have received, thank you. I am humbled by the kindness and generosity of the community.


    The Cardiologist wants to run some tests now; so that will move the surgery date. I will take a nuclear stress test and an echo-cardiogram next week. After those tests are completed and God willing are fine, they will reschedule the surgery. The delay should only be a week or two. I will update everyone after the testing with the new surgery date.


    Again, thank you for the support it is helping me more than I can express.

    Fasting will help you heal from your surgery. Dry fasting is the most potent form. I have seen it work first hand for multiple types of invasive surgery.

    Get Well Soon Anthony!!

    Anthony and the GPWA team have done an excellent job with managing this forum over the years.

    Always lending a hand when needed. Some forget this has been a free forum from the very beginning.

    It's obvious that both Operators and Affiliates rely on such a trusted service and partner like GPWA.org.

    As a recommendation I ask you to show your support for GPWA by signing up through their sponsored links and banners of the various sponsored affiliate programs. This is something I feel is under utilized by some of it's members. Affiliate Programs do wish to track, the source of their advertising sponsorships at GPWA. The easiest way you can show you support for Anthony, Michael and GPWA is to simply sign-up through the various GPWA featured and or sponsored Affiliate Programs.

    From the Webpartners Team we wish Anthony a speedy recovery.

    Default A quick update

    I took the two cardio tests. Both results were normal and I have received the Cardiologist's clearance. The surgery is scheduled for 18 October.

    Thank you for all the well wishes!
