Bruce's Medical Expenses

My husband, Bruce Pushor, father of 6, grandfather of 12, host father of 7, came down with a migraine on May 26th. It wouldn't go away so he went to our local hospital on Sunday the 28th. A CT scan revealed bleeding in the brain. They immediately transferred him the EMMC. After further tests, the neurosurgeon confirmed Bruce had an AVM. (Arteriovenous Malformation) A small cluster of blood vessels sitting directly in the center path between his speech and comprehension. 2 options were presented at that time. Surgery, which would have immediate significant risks that include right side paralysis, and speech and comprehension difficulties. The other option is a one time zap of radiation to the cluster. In Boston. Two trips to boston would be needed. A consult and then the proceedure. We have no health insurance. Bruce spent 5 nights in ICU, he's been on a floor for 3 nights and is expected to be there another 5 nights. After that, we will need to transport him to Boston 2 times and he will have so down time from work to rehab and possiblility of physical therapy.  I am sure between the 3 hospitals involved, medications, tests and travel...this is going to cost well over $60,000.00, but that is my goal. Anything would be a great help. If anyone has a few bucks that you're sure you could spare, we would appreciate and be so very grateful for your help. Prayers are important too, and we thank you for all of them!
