Funds For Tad Kimes

My name is Tamera and I am raising money to help my brother Tad with his upcoming expenses. On Friday July 19th 2019 Tad had a massive heart attack. He had gone to the doctors twice prior that week for help because of chest pain and numbness in the arms. Both doctors sent him home and said to come back for a stress test on the following Tuesday the 23rd instead of sending him to the emergency. Following the massive heart attack on Friday he had 4 more cardiac arrests and is fighting for his life. He has under gone heart surgery. As a result his kidneys, liver, lungs and brain took a hard hit. He is still in ICU in critical condition. He is currently on dialysis and a respiratory machine. According to the doctors he will need dialysis for a “long time”. He still can’t breathe on his own. We still don’t know the extent of any brain damage that my have occurred from lack of oxygen to the brain. He is still not able to follow any commands. They have ordered an MRI that will give us and the medical team more insight of what may be going on. In addition, after they pulled the heart pump out, Tads left leg suffered severe non circulation and had yet another surgery to relieve the pressure from his knee down to his foot. They had to slice open both sides of his calf which still needs to be addressed after the swelling goes down. Tad needs our help........ He is such a wonderful caring fun and always “life of the party “ guy. He is loved by many! So please help him and donate. If he could talk right now he would want to know “ “ARE YOU A TURTLE?”
