Stryper guitarist Oz Fox to undergo testing for brain surgery biopsies and needs help to cover medical bills
Further medical updates on Stryper guitarist Oz Fox‘s condition have been provided by his wife Annie Lobert who has now started a GoFundMe page to raise funds to cover Fox‘s mounting medical bills.
The GoFundMe fundraising campaign started for Fox states:
“While performing on stage in Las Vegas, on August 12th, 2018 at approximately 12:30 am Oz Fox had a seizure on stage. He was taken to the hospital to stabilize his vitals and was given a CAT scan & MRI. Results showed that he had 2 masses in his head, one by his ear and the other in the back of his brain. The next day he was given a spinal tap. Results stated he had no infections in his spine, so now Oz will go under testing for brain surgery biopsies.
The only problem is–he doesn’t have health insurance. We are in the process of getting him coverage, but in the meantime, his hospital bills are piling up at an enormous rate! We don’t know how much the brain biopsies will cost, nor what will happen when we get the results back–whether he will need more surgery to remove any tumors or treatment plans for healing.
Oz cannot drive, fly or work for 3 months because of the potential seizures. Stryper has had to cancel some of the shows out of the country because Oz cannot perform due to his medical condition.
Anything that is given will go directly to the costs incurred to help to Oz & Annie with medical bills and supplement any income lost.
Oz has been in Stryper for over 30 years as a founding member and is in many different bands in Las Vegas. God has used his joy filled soul and zest for life in so many ways with countless people! When you meet Oz –you feel like you’ve known him all your life! He is a wonderful dad, husband, musician, but most of all a faithful, reliable and loyal friend. He would give his shirt off his back to help anyone in need–he truly has a heart of gold!”
