Eric's Medical Fund

Hello,

I am starting this campaign for my brother, Eric.

Here is his story:
 
Eric works full time in the construction industry and is a single father to an amazing little girl, Kyliegh. Unfortunately, Eric was involved in a tragic incident in which he ended up getting shot by his neighbor. His neighbor ended up throwing a rock through his daughters window early Saturday morning of June10th. He proceeded to find out why by confronting his neighbor and that is when he got shot. Eric was rushed to the hospital. The bullet entered his left side in his back which went through his rectum, colon, cracked his sacrum and went into his stomach area, which is where the bullet remains. They are having to do a colostomy for 3 to 4 months while they heal. About 3 days after his first surgery, he was having a lot of pain and couldn’t go to the bathroom. Eric had to go back in for a 2nd surgery so they could fix the issues. They also had to put a tube down through his nose to his stomach to help with the acid so he wouldn’t get sick so his wounds on the inside could heal. He also has to have a catheter as he is still numb in certain areas. Eric was in the hospital for 12 days before they finally let him go home. He will be unable to work for about 6-8 weeks. He will then have to return to have the bag removed and to have the rectum and colon sewed back together.  

 I am asking to please help and donate if you can to this campaign so funds can be raised to help Eric with medical supplies, bills, food, and whatever else will be necessary to take care of himself and his daughter.

Thank you all... so much!
