2nd chance for dad

On February 24th, my Father, a roofer,  was on a job doing snow removel, he slipped and fell off the roof at 25-30 ft. onto the owners deck. As a result he had internal bleeding, 3 stitches above his left eye and three broken discs in his lower back. He was air lifted by helicopter from Elliot Hospital in Manchester, N.H. to Mass General in Boston, M.A. He then had emergency surgery for the bleeding and they were able to stop it. He is scheduled for surgery saturday for the discs in his back, this will be a risky process as it could paralyze him. We are believing it will go well.
  This is a hard time for my family. Travel from N.H to M.A. 2Hrs. a day costing about $30 each visit. Both hospital bills are going to be costly as well as the helicopter ride. My Father is the main income with a possibility of not being able to work again. My mother does work for my father's buisness and my 2 sisters work part time jobs.
  My heart bleeds for them as they are in already in financial debt. If there is no income soon they will lose their house, they are already behind on their mortgage due to lack of work this winter. My father lays in the hospital bed in a panic thinking only of work and bills.
  I wish I could help them in their time of need, but with 6 children of my own im unable to. the only way I can help is by making this page and encourage others to help ease the pain they are suffering. Anything would help if they can get enough for food and gas that would be greatly helpful. If you can't give a donation thats ok we just ask that you share this page with your friends and pray for a speedy recovery and we will be very greatful for that. Thank you somuch in advance!

   The day after my wedding my husband and I got into a car accident and for a week my dad took time off work and out of his schedule to help us and drive us around and even got my food because I had a broken foot and Larry had a severe cuncussion that lasted the whole week. Even though we had told him we were ok he still wanted to stay and help in any way possible. He is so kind hearted and so selfless and would give the shirt off his back. I love him so much and I'm so happy that I could be there for him in his time of need.
  My dad always has a smile on his face, as you can see in these pictures he is a very happy Godly man. He has so many people who care very much for him and we are so greatful for that. Thank you to all for such great support.
