magine as a kid what you wanted to do......, imagine your idol, imagine the person that you inspire to be......., The person that in the future will make his family proud......, That person that saves lives.... That person who battles the heat.... The person that is a true hero... Can you see your dream? Can you see your childhood dream out there in the deep memory of happiness? Can this be true?...
.... Yes it can!!! My father Is one of those who did. You see this man.... For me this man is my hero. The way I see it the man should be awarded something for all the kind deeds this man has done. You see to me this man and his work and who he is say more about what hero should be described as. Like you many of us, we have had a dreams and wonders when we were a kid to do all the things he has done. When he was in highschool he messed his knee up pretty bad on the varsity team in 9th grade, after high school he was shipped out to the marines ( Thank you for your services dad and all who had, and have in the military ). He was honorably discharged in basic sadly because everytime he ran more then 3 miles his knee would swell up to make his leg unusable. Some years later he got a job as a officer for the city of Kalamazoo and walked the beat downtown. Then the city changed to public safety so he become everything kids look up because since he was a Paramedic, Police Officer, and a Firefighter. He had a few injuries at work, and then the sad day came upon us when he had a heart attack at work and was in the hospital for the start of hell. For many years after that he had more and stents break or balloons pop in his heart. About a 3 years after they stopped, he had a stroke. That was 2 years ago almost ( since Dec 2017). Now this last year has been bad for this hero. He has gotten the worst news since the loss of his job. His kidneys are failing and he needs to start dialysis.when I talked to him he couldn't speak, this man had been so choked up he couldn't speak to me just stare and frown fighting tears as he hugged me. we started doing everything we all could for him. Tragedy then struck at our happiest hour and hope for a transplant of the best thing a son can do for his dad was canceled and denied because he needed a second opinion after us paying for gas there, equipment, doctors bills, blood tests...... Anyway you get that? So the astonishingly amazing best thing I could think of for him was to ask the friends and family and any who reads this to please reach out and help this great hero, no this true hero pay off his debt. the exact amount needed is what we are going for but of at all possible I would love to give him more so he can completely pay for the next time as well.
Thank you all for reading and supporting my father. Anything you can do to help get this out and or donate would be all for his birthday. So I hope to raise up it before.
( All donations go to his direct paypal account and I will deposit it all to him at midnight the day before so when he gets up and I tell him to go look I'll record and post his reaction).
Thank you so much from the family!!
