Father John's Medical/Assistance

As many of you know, Father John Zabinko suffered a severe stroke couple weeks ago.  Although he did not lose the abilityh to speak,  he has difficulty maneuvering.  His condition requires intensive and urgent therapy.  It is our understanding that he will be in the hospital for approximately three more weeks.  His wife, Mathuska Maggie is still working, and to ease the stress, and maybe with this donation, she may be able to take some time off to be with Father John during his stay at the hospital and home.  I am humbly asking those of you who know Father John and Mathuska Maggie to please donate to this worthy cause.  Please contact friends, family, and our Native Corporations to assist/donate from their hearts.  Father John has served our communities for many years and has made many hospital visits to visit the sick.   It was and is a 24 hour job.  Father John has a long road ahead of him and it is unknown at this time when he will be able to come back to St. Innocent Orthodox Cathedral to serve.

Supporting Father John and Mathuska Maggie with whatever you can give to help relieve the financial burden would be humbly appreciated.  With this financial assistance, Father John and his family can focus on his rehab and getting healthy and strong.
