My Brother’s Keeper

My brother Allan has never met a stranger in his entire life. He is the guy that you want to be around all the time. He has a heart of gold and can make you laugh for hours. He’s my best friend, my Irish twin and the best brother anyone could ask for. 

Allan has a 12 year old daughter Cadence who is the light of his life. Allan became a single dad at 17 he has raised his daughter since the day she was born. He wouldn’t have it any other way they are two peas in a pod. Whatever life throws at them they just become more  resilient and push forward. 
A few years ago my brother had a horrible seizure which completely changed his life. The seizure caused 7 compression fractures in his thoracic spine. Over the last few years we have worked with doctors and they diagnosed him with epilepsy. He continues to deal with the pain of the fractures everyday. We thought we had everything stable until about a month ago he had another seizure were they discovered 2 more fractures in his spine. This time it’s much worse the doctors are suggesting that he has back surgery to repair the fractures. Allan will need to take time off work to focus on his health and this is going to be one of the scariest times of his life. So I’m  hoping that by creating this it will help make things less scary and he can focus on getting better instead of delaying things any further and causing bigger problems. He does have insurance but it’s very expensive and only allows him to go to one provider which is a huge problem financially. 
If you’re  not able to give please pray for his health and for god to provide.
Thank you  
sincerely my brothers keeper
