I was admitted to Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown for a serious foot infection via the Emergency Room on June 14th. 2017. We (Liz and myself), were hoping that it would be an "in and out" procedure", When all the test results were finally collected however, it was determined that the infection had spread to the bones in my feet, and I would have to receive aggressive antibiotic treatment through a PICC line. I don't have insurance at this time (The medical portion of this will likely be paid by Charity Care), which means I have to stay actually in the hospial for a minimum of 45 days.
This, of course, came as a huge blow to my family. I work a couple nights a week hosting karaoke shows, in addition to playing live music to help make ends meet.
I also provide evening child care for my daughter Audrey, who is 6; Liz, who works 5 nights a week, will not be able to shoulder all the bills alone, so I've turned to you, my friends, in an attempt to get help to cover our everyday bills while I'm out of work.
My estimates for the goal include my typical income over a 2 month period, with a small amount to cover the cost of insulin and diabetic supplies.
Any amout you can donate will help us stay on our feet through this difficult time. Please, by all means, share this if you're willing and able...Liz, Audrey, and I would like to take this opportuity to say thank you to our friends and family who have already helped us out so much this week.
I will be posting updates as the weeks progress.
Again, thank you.
