At 2:00 monday morning, October 16th, during a three week visit, Frank had a massive stroke and is hospitalized in Managua - the capitol city.
He was in a remote area called Bluefields and needed to be transported by air to Managua. At that time, his condition included paralysis of his right extremities, and loss of speech. As the day passed, his condition worsend and he is currently sedated, more or less unconscious.
We need to immediately raise enough money to pay for his care and his eventual transport back into the U.S., so any donation is appreciated.
The financial burden is great, to say the least, but major issues to address include: medical transport, neurosurgical care, scans and other proceedures that have been carried out. Most importantly, due to the limitations of Frank's insurance coverage, the hospital will not release him until arrangements for payment are made.
In addition to your financial generosity, please share this campaign with everyone you know. Also, your prayers for Frank and his wife Sue are welcomed and recieved with gratitude.
His family thanks you for your support in this scary and uncertain time.
