Bruce Campbell owner of Sea Critters Depot in Myrtle Beach SC needs our help. Last we spoke he was so excited about the upcoming trip with his wife. They were taking a cruise this Christmas. He said ‘we need to travel more’. I wished him a Merry Christmas and said I looked forward to hearing all about it. This morning while in the Bahamas Bruce suffered a stroke. He is in serious condition from the news currently posted. Bruce is known for giving back to our community. He does a lot and now he needs us. Medical bills are only a small part of his needs. He and his wife are far away from home, away from family, support and local things we take for granted. Please keep him in prayer and if you can contribute anything it is all going to help him.
Updates will be posted as soon as I get them

After Bruce Campbell suffered a tragic stroke during a cruise, then being stranded in the Bahamas by the cruise line with no money or passports, he and his wife, Susie, owners of Sea Critters Depot in North Myrtle Beach, are safely back in the states by way of an air medevac. They were air lifted directly from the Bahamas to Wilmington, fully paid for by an anonymous Christmas Angel.
But there is a long road ahead for Bruce. He is currently at New Hanover Regional Med Center in Wilmington and is in a med induced coma. The hospital has determined that his stroke was more severe than Freeport doctors told his wife. His treatment in the Bahamas was limited due to hurricane Dorian damage and the slow recovery efforts there. The red tape and huge costs to get home also delayed their return. Because of all the lost time, he now has extremely limited options.
Bruce is the most easy going, giving, humble and kind person ...and such a proud, loving family man. He is a small local business owner with no insurance. Please think about sharing your blessings with someone not as fortunate. This man who has helped many of us is now in need of your prayers as well as help financially. Just click on the picture of Bruce and Susie below to go to the GOFUNDME page. Any small amount is appreciated... In addition, please add him to your prayer circle. <3
