Hyder Family

My name is Kelly Casteel. Patrick Hyder, my father, is one of the hardest working men I have ever met. Growing up, he and my mom sacrificed everything to make sure my brother and I always had everything we needed. He works six days a week, follows all the rules, and has never taken a hand out in his life. He is an amazing grandfather to my two young sons. He hasn't felt well in months, but usually spends his one day off a week playing with them. July 1st, he had a massive heart attack. It was a miracle he survived. We found out he is a diabetic and has been for quite a while. (All the while working 12 hour shifts 6 days per week in a factory) Then, today July 4, he suffered another massive heart attack. He is currently in critical condition. My mom has been by his side the entire time. Both of them will be out of work for some time. I can't imagine what their medical bills will look like. I am asking that anyone that can, please donate to my family. Both of my parents work extremely hard to make ends meet, and this is going to be a hard financial blow. Thank you very much.
