on behalf of Donald Halas
 DENVER, CO
While working in Mexico, Don received a mysterious bite that became infected. The infection was so severe that it required an overnight hospital stay in Cancun to receive IV antibiotics. Because Don's hospital stay was out of the country, his insurance is not covering any of the bills resulting in some hefty expenses. 

When Don returned from the hospital he immediately got back to work with a smile on his face, which shows just the kind of guy he is!

Any donations are appreciated to help Don with this unfortunate situation. Lets help our gentle giant!

Hi, my name Is Shaneik Watson and I am making this gofundme on behalf of my 29 yr old Aunt, Shanna Chen, and her 7 yr old daughter Brianna. On Friday, December 15th, 2017 Shanna went to the emergency room at Vassar Brothers Hospital because she was experiencing severe headaches. As a result of that visit, she and our family was devastated to find out that she had 2 brain aneurysms and would have to undergo emergency surgery that following morning. Shanna went into surgery for what was supposed to be a 4-6 hour procedure, It ended up being 15 hours. The doctor explained to us that during the procedure her brain began to bleed out and swell so they had to work vigorously to stop the bleeding and removed a portion of her skull that couldn’t be replaced due to the swelling of her brain in the process. We were informed today that her skull cannot be replaced for a few months during which time she will have to wear a helmet to protect her brain and go through rehabilitation to regain the full function of her brain. My mother is the oldest of my grandmothers eight children and my aunt Shanna is the youngest. She is more than a aunt to me and my sisters, she was raised by my mother in the same household as us all of our lives. I cry as I write this because I am still in disbelief that this is even reality right now. Shanna is a strong woman and by the grace of God the results of her cat scan show no permanent brain damage but she still has a long road ahead of her before she fully recovers. Shanna works as a PCA and she is a single mother who like many other people in the world live paycheck to paycheck so we are asking for help to keep her and Brianna’s home and for any other expenses that may occur during her time of healing. As of right now, Brianna does not know the extent of what has happened to her mom and we are trying to keep things as normal as possible for her and with the holidays nearing we don’t even know how to break the news to her but the last thing we want is for Brianna and her mom to have to go through this ordeal and end up losing their home and what sense of normalcy they had in their lives before this unexpected tragedy. Anything you can give will be greatly appreciated and even if not a monetary donation we are asking for prayers from all in our time of need. Thank you for taking the time out to read on Shanna and Brianna’s story. https://www.facebook.com/shaneik.watson/posts/10156114225392342
