Help bring Patsy back to Boston

Hello everyone. As some of you may know our parents Richie and Patsy DeVoe went on vacation to Aruba for a few weeks in the middle of November. While down there our mother, Patsy, has fallen ill. Their insurance is not accepted in the hospital and they have been paying out of pocket. After several trips to the ED she was finally admitted into the hospital on Thanksgiving and underwent emergency surgery the following Saturday. The goal is to get her on a med flight to Florida and then from Florida get her some how back to Boston so she can be seen by her health team here and be with her family. The hospital bill is already over $20k and the med flight (if it goes through as planned) is $22k to Ft.Lauderdale and $42k if she flown directly into Boston. Please if you can help out our parents and get our mother back to the best hospitals in the world so we can figure out what is actually going on and get her on the road back to a healthy and active life. Our parents have been active members of the South Boston community for over the past 40 years and give to so many charities and local benefits, please anything will help. If you can not donate please say a prayer for her safe return. Thank you and God Bless.

Patsy and Richies children
Suzanne DeVoe, Ricky DeVoe, Kristie Norwood, Lance Norwood, Jackie DeVoe and Victor Valles.
