Phil's Road to Recovery

This is Phil Natividad also known as Hawaii Phil, HP. Phil is a father, husband and so much more. Those of you that know him, know he is the most caring, giving person out there. (He also thinks he’s really funny) He is true to Ohana!!! On December 13th Phil had a brain aneurysm burst. He has had 2 strokes and 3 surgeries. But he still has brain activity on the scans. He is still in the window for strokes till the 13th of January. At this point we do not know how much of his speech or understanding of speech was damaged. We also do not know how much of his right side mobility functions were also lost or damaged. But the Dr. feels that with Phils age, he might be able to re-learn these things. As long as he stays strong and does not decline.This has been a hard ship on his family in more than 1 way, Phil and his wife own and operate a farm. This is their only source of income. The hospital is 2 hours away and they have their 5yr old son at home. Despite all thats happened our family has remained positive and continued to pray for Phil's recovery. If he does pull through this it will take at least 18months. The money donated will help supplement the income lost due to Phil's absence on their family farm as it could be 2 or more years before he can get back to his daily routine. Phil is a very active person and needs to be able to get out and get around, and hopefully one day, because of your donation, he will be able to do so. The road has not been easy for him or his family, but if any of you know Phil, you know that he is a fighter and will come out stronger. Thank you from the bottom of our family's hearts. I know that the holidays are a rough time financially, but any sized donation will be accepted and appreciated with the same amount of gratitude.
