Please help my Dad recover


My name is Michelle and I have created this GoFundMe to help my dad, Noel, following a terrible incident in which he had a brain hemorrhage. This happened on August 19th, and he has slowly been recovering in the hospital in the weeks and months since then. This was entirely unexpected and scared all of us terribly, but Noel has been fighting and working hard to recover more each and every day. We are in a very unfortunate situation in that I am the only person who is earning money in our household and it is not possible for me to manage everything with what has happened. It will take a while for him to heal and starting next week we will have to hire a care taker to watch over him when he gets out of the hospital. We hope that he recovers enough so that I will be able to bring him back to India where we have more family that can help him.

We are requesting that you keep him in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time, and that if there is anything more that you can spare please help us in any way. To add to the difficulties of this situation, Noel’s injury has not been covered by his insurance. Below are his details:

Hospital: Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, 751 S Bascom Ave, San Jose, CA 95128
