Veteran Needs Emergency Assistance

$15,640 of $38,000 goal

 PATERSON, NJ
Michael Howe, a.k.a. Mighty, went on vacation to Aruba with his wife Nancy last week.  Unfortunately, Mighty suffered a stroke.  He is now in the hospital in Aruba.  The left side of his body is paralyzed. While we would think that the doctors in Aruba are doing everything they can to help Mighty, his pressure has not gone down much over the past week.  The doctors will not release him, and he is unable to fly home.  We are looking to raise money to have him medivaced home, back to America ASAP.  The cost to have him medivaced is $38,000. We believe that once Mighty is back here in the states, he will get the proper care.

Mighty is a decorated officer with the Clifton Police Force.  He is also a veteran who fought in a number of Iraqi wars, including Desert Storm. 

Your donations will be GREATLY appreciated.

                                     ******UPDATE******

Due to the severity of Mighty's condition, it was best to bring him home sooner rather than later. Several credit cards  were used to cover the $38,000 medivac fee.

In addition to the high interest  rate on these credit cards, an international transfer fee was also assessed.
Medical costs continue to mount, and health insurance does not cover medi-vac services.

Your continued support will truly be a blessing to the family.

The family cannot thank everyone enough for their prayers and support. Mighty is getting better every day. He is now able to move his left leg (thank God)! His spirits remain high. Please continue to keep him in your prayers. Thank you again!
