COVID-19 Relief for the Addisons

Martin's life was cut tragically short due to COVID-19.  

Martin put up a courageous fight against this virus.  He contracted COVID-19 at the end of March, and was hospitalized on April 3rd as a patient in the ICU.  On April 7th, he was intubated and placed on a ventilator.  About a week later, as they began to wean him off the ventilator,  a bacterial infection set him back, and they were unable to extubate him. Martin defeated that infection, and was making progress.  Unfortunately, after many failed attempts at extubation, he was given a tracheostomy on Monday, April 27th.  Since Monday night, Martin had been battling another bacterial infection, and he lost his fight on April 29th.  He was only 44 years old.

Martin was a true family man.  He was a doting "papa" to his 2 year old daughter and his 5 month old son. He loved sports (Liverpool Football Club/Broncos/Mets/ UCONN Huskies), Star Wars, acronyms, James Bond,  and music.  Martin was passionate about his patients and his work as a speech/language pathologist at St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center. 

Pamela's life has been unexpectedly turned upside down, and now she is raising two young children. She is still home on maternity leave, and is without an immediate income to assist with all the financial hardship she will endure.

We understand that these are difficult times; however, if you can find it in your heart to donate what you can, no amount is too small and is greatly appreciated.
