The Prygoskis are in danger of losing their home and need your help. In 2012, Phil, a beloved law professor, suffered a massive stroke. As a result, Phil has severe physical and cognitive deficits, as well as extreme, debilitating head pain from post-surgical nerve damage.
The next year, their community came together to raise enough money for the Prygoskis to make their house handicap-accessible so that Phil could stay in the home the family built more than twenty years ago.
Due to unforeseen circumstances outside of the Prygoskis' control, however, Phil has recently lost his salary and will soon lose his health benefits. Because of his disabilities, Phil is unable to work. Mary is also unable to hold a full-time job because she is Phil's full-time caregiver.
This situation has made it extremely difficult for the Prygoskis to make ends meet. It would be devastating for Phil to leave his cherished, newly-renovated home, but mounting medical and living expenses will make keeping their home impossible.
