Michael and Karen Daum ask for your assistance

54951662_1615044412542020_r.jpegOn February 6th, 2021, my husband, Mike, went into the hospital because he was having difficulty breathing.  It was Covid.  Two days later he was put on a ventilator and into a coma.  He remains in a coma as of today, March 1st.  Covid ravaged his lungs, then his kidneys.  He is now on permanent dialysis.  Our lives have been turned upside down.   Mike was the breadwinner.  He paid the bills.  Now there is very little  income and Im finding it difficult to keep up with monthly obligations and medical bills.  He will need care when he comes home and medical bills will pile up.  I need to keep my head above water so Mike will have a familiar, safe place to come home to. (Im trying to stay positive.)

In advance, I'd like to thank all of you who are considering gifting.  I am truly amazed and blessed at the human spirit, the kindness, the generosity of others.  Even if you cannot share, please send prayers and healing thoughts to Mike.  

Bless you all and stay safe.  This thing is no joke.
