Help pay Derek’s medical bills

44219172_1576794552701386_r.jpegOur brother and friend, Derek, needed emergency surgery just before the holidays on December 17th on an internal abcess. That is when the surgeon discovered Fournier’s gangrene, a flesh eating bacteria, which is making things a lot more complicated. Derek is receiving treatment, however, he may need more surgeries and will definitely need home health care going forward. 

Derek is the sole provider for his beautiful young family and despite working very hard at a job that he loves, he did not have health insurance for himself. This will be a long road of recovery for Derek and his family will need help covering existing medical bills that are piling up. He will need to take time off from work, have home health care for the next ?? months, and potentially another surgery. 

Derek works so hard to support his family....Let’s show Derek how much he means to us and give him a Christmas miracle of not having the burden of worrying about his medical bills this Holiday Season ♥️
