Aneurysm before Christmas

Dean McDonald has been a employee of mine for 5 years and a dear friend for 30. On Thursday, the 21st of December, Dean pulled a brake drum off a car. After sitting down he collapsed and was unresponsive. Being rushed to the hospital, we feared the worst. Dean had suffered a brain aneurysm. He has had the pressure drained out of his brain and the aneurysm sealed, as well as has the breathing tube removed but is still a long way from being out of the woods. These last couple of months have not been easy on Dean, as he lost his childhood home to a fire that he had been living in and is now having to fight for his life. Dean is one of the kindest, most dependable, and trustworthy people I have had the honor of knowing in 30 years of our friendship. Please aid us in trying to help Dean out and get a little bit of a Christmas miracle in this tough time.
