My oldest brother, Todd, had a life threatening heart attack sometime on December 21, 2020. He was rushed to his local hospital in Hudson, WI where they then rushed him to Regions Hospital in St. Paul, MN. Diagnosis was of not only a major heart attack, but a lung infection and kidney failure.
The doctors installed two stints and a balloon device into some of the blockages on the heart. He was also put on antibiotics for the lung infection. Todd will be in Regions under heavy sedation, medications, and care in the ICU unit at Regions Hospital for quite some time.
Todd's wife Chris and daughter Marina are not able to be with him due to the COVID-19 conditions. They are in touch with the doctors and nurses via phone only.
Todd and Chris are like many in the USA in that they do not have any insurance. All these expenses will come from their savings. This is situation is more urgent as Todd had a major bone infection in one of his feet a couple years ago. This depleted their savings by quite a bit.
The money from this GoFundMe will go to paying off his medical bills and the help his wife, Chris, in her daily needs as Todd's recovery progresses.
Todd has been very involved in BSA Scouting ever since he received his Eagle Scout Badge during his senior year in High School. He has mentored both scouts and scout leaders in in Minnesota and Western Wisconsin area for many years.
The medical bills will be coming soon, and Todd and Chris really need the financial support from their friends and family more than ever. Please consider helping my brother and his family by lessening the financial burdens they will be facing.
