This is for a dear friend of ours who went into  a routine surgery and ended up in ICU  on July 6th. He went in to repair a torn rotator cuff that was torn while playing a game . While he was recovering at the outpatient center he developed pulmonary edema and was rushed to the ER. His organs began to fail, including his kidneys. The started dialysis but it was not working. His pulse-oxygen was at 40%, less than half of what it's supposed to be. This morning, July 7th, his lungs stopped working. So far they haven't been able to get him stable enough to move him to a better hospital.  At this point things don't look good but we are praying for the best. 

He is a doting single father of a 9 year old boy and loving brother who is alaways given  the shirt off his back. Now its his turn for help. His mother came down from New York this morning but his siblings are still there. Unfortunately we can not afford plane tickets to bring them down to see their brother. There are also tens, maybe hundreds, of thousands of dollars in hospital bills coming, necessities for his son, and other unpredictable expenses. 

All  money will be funded directly to his mother. Please help bring his siblings down and help with bills and the care of his son.
