Willy McMahon Fundraiser
William “Willy” McMahon has chronic health issues which have led to financial hardship. Willy is a self-employed business owner & resident 0f Fargo. In 2020 he began experiencing gait and balance problems and was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, a disease of the central nervous system. In October he had surgery to treat a collapsed lung, at that time another surgery was advised on his right lung for the same condition, so a second surgery followed in December. While recovering from the surgeries he experienced increasing back pain requiring further treatment and hospitalizations for pain management. From that point on he has been unable to work. A Neurology consult in April 2022 confirmed a recurrent disc herniation and recommendation for a spinal fusion. Because his insurance and network do not cover disc replacement surgery (a possible better alternative with shorter recovery time), he will be consulting with out-of-network providers in the Twin Cities to determine viability. If eligible, the surgery will be entirely out-of-pocket. Friends have organized this fundraiser to help Willy pay ongoing medical bills, continue working, and enjoying life.
