Medical/Daily Expenses For Barnabas

On October 11th, Barnabas Kester, like every morning, was riding his skateboard to work when he was struck by a vehicle, leaving him in the ICU ever since. Barn is the main provider for his little family working Monday-Saturday so his wife could be home with their 3 little children. They are the family you go to when you need something, anything.. They would literally give you their last $5 if they knew you needed it. Barn has had some major brain swelling where an induced coma was not helping so a craniotomy was needed, and now they found some issues with his lungs and clotting, while still in a coma. I know Barn would appreciate any type of donations to know his wife and children are going to be ok while he is fighting the biggest fight of his life right now. Their family has been through alot the last few years and they never ask for any help besides prayers, but I am asking for not only prayers, but some financial help for them so Kara can be with him and not have to worry about how she is going to feed her children, or keep their bills paid. If we can just give their family some financial relief that would mean so much to them, to all of us that love them. It is so much appreciated.
