08/26/2020 Update:

On August 25th, 2020, Igor Burlak tragically drowned in a lake, while on vacation with his family in Michigan.

He was found unconscious in the water and was apparently underwater for more than 20 minutes. His parents and sister, along with police, rushed him to the hospital and found a small pulse.

That same night, at the hospital, he had two cardiac arrests, as well as 6 to 7 heart attacks. He was on a ventilator to keep pumping oxygen into his lungs, but the doctors say he is already brain dead after losing oxygen for so long.

The doctors have recommended that the plug be pulled as there is not much else that can be done. His heart, lungs, brain, and kidneys are damaged. They can't stabilize his blood pressure or oxygen level.

Unfortunately, Igor did not have medical insurance and his family will face a lot of medical expenses as a result of this. At some point, he will also need to be transferred  back home to Ohio. We know that these expenses can get very costly and would like to help Igor's family have one less burden as they face this tragedy. Thank you for you financial support as well as your prayers during this difficult time.
