Family and friends will hold a benefit for Robert Brierly, due to his living situation and continuing health issues, according to information from Jennifer Allgeier.
Brierly lost his home after the death of his wife a few years ago, and he lived in a daughter’s basement until she sold her home, Allgeier said. For a little while after that, he lived in a camper.
Brierly is in remission from prostate and bladder cancer, and he has diabetes and cervical spine issues, which led to surgery on his lower back. He spent six weeks in the hospital.
