Help Out Our Brother Pat

This past Thursday, our apartment caught fire and we lost just about everything. The materials we lost can easily be replaced; however, our roommate Pat was stuck inside of the apartment for a long period of time while the fire was burning. He was finally removed from the building but suffered significant lung damage and was intubated in the hosptial upon arrival. Thankfully, he is now in recovery and we would greatly appreciate any donation to help cover his medical expenses. Our goal is to raise $5,000 for him and his family, but we hope the amount of donations exceeds our expectations. We want to help Pat recover successfully and make a smooth transition back into his senior year here at Indiana University. Any donation would be greatly appreciated.
