THE STORY:

This fundraiser is to help my mother and father with several medical bill co-pays that my father has incurred over the last 7 months. My father was in a tragic car accident in September 2013 and has been in the hospital since that time. He was literally pronounced dead at the scene.  He ended up with a spinal cord injury causing several issues for his life ahead.  He has now been moved around and in 5 different hospitals, due to insurance only allowing so many days in care facilities. He started out getting pneumonia and ended up on a breathing machine, struggled through pneumonia several times, and has been in and out of ICU several times. He currently is in a motorized wheelchair as he cannot walk, but is trying with all his heart to gain his strength back to be able to walk again. This fundraiser is also to help assist in getting a second opinion from Cleveland Clinic, so that we have hope that my father can soon eat again. We have just been told due to the accident, there is a bone spur that has protruded into his esophagus and the flap (eppliglotis) on top of his esophagus is not opening properly.  The doctor said he will have to choose whether to live with a feeding tube the rest of his life OR he may eat  knowing that he will get aspiration pneumonia and this will eventually take his life. PLEASE please help us. My father has been the proud owner of his own business for 38 years and has never turned anyone away who needed help. Now he needs help in return. Even people who have not had his best interest at heart, he has never turned them away. He is the greatest man alive and our hero.
