Devantes headstone ❤️

On June 7,2016 Devante Myrick was diagnosed with bacterial pneumonia. In Richmond VA at MCV hospital , where they prescribed him medications and took some x-rays. But about 5 days after the visit he was not getting better. So he came back to his hometown of Manassas to get family help & care , and they immediately took him to Prince William Hospital. Prince William hospital examined him and prescribed him more medication . Then sent him home. He was under his grandmas care for about 4 days around Father's Day weekend. So Devante started feeling better and returned home to Richmond. But shorty after being home things went downhill Because unknowingly he had been breathing in mold in his house witch he rents in Richmond witch caused him to have bacterial pneumonia . So 2 days later he returned to manassas and went straight to prince William hospital. Where we was prescribed steroids & to continue the medicine he was previously given. They also recommended he see a lung specialist. So he returned home and continued with the family care for the next four days . Until his appointment Tuesday morning July 5th with the lung specialist. While Devante was getting dressed he could not breathe to the point he could not move , his father had to pick him up and rush him to the car. They proceeded to the lung specialist . Soon as they got there he was told his blood pressure and heart rate was to high and the breathe count was under 21. So he was immediately rushed to the emergency room. They Immediately took X-rays and found out his left lung had collapsed and he had to have emergency surgery. So now Devante is still battling a collapsed lung and a bad case of pneumonia and is currently in Prince William hospital. So we have started this account to raise money for his outstanding medical bills he will have once he makes a full recovery. Devante is a hard working man and has always kept 2 jobs . So him getting sick unexpectedly has caused him not to work for the past month & the medical bills and rent have been pilling up . So we hope that can you find it in your hearts to donate to Devantes expenses no matter how big or small . Anything is appreciated please & thank you !  &  Please pray for a speedy and full recovery!
