Help offset Chad's Medical Bills

Chad, an EMT with Polk County Fire Rescue for 11 years has been hospitalized since August 2, 2017. This sudden onset of a septic infection has resulted in surgery, daily wound care and packing. During his stay in MICU and subsequently on regular floor, Chad developed a blood clot behind his knee. Shortly thereafter, on August 13th, Chad was transferred to Lakeland Regional Medical Center for Rehab for strength. After 4 days, it was determined Chad's blood clot was much larger than suspected. He was taken to Interventional radiology where they attempted to bust up clot thru catheters in the vein. During this surgery, Dr discovered that it was even more serious and Chad required admission into the SICU unit. His vena cava vein to the heart was completely blocked. Subsequently, Chad underwent 4 procedures back to back and by the Grace of God, the massive clot has been removed. Stints have been put in vena cava and in his groin.
After some more time in SICU Chad has been transferred to a regular medical floor. He is still experiencing some medical issues and we are on a day to day situation as far as recovery goes.
Chad is in to week 4 of being hospitalized and obviously unable to work. He has dedicated his life to helping others and this time he is the one in need of help.
If you are able to help even in the smallest way to help Chad with mounting medical expenses or are only able to offer prayers, anything will help.
Thank you in advance for your support and continued prayers for our beloved Chad. God Bless You
