John’s surgery in Boston

For those of you that know my Cousin John Karzmarczyk know that in the first week of January,this year he was rushed in for an emergency appendectomy, and what should have been about a 5 week recovery has now turned in to  3 month ordeal as a result of a paralyzed diaphragm, caused by the surgery.
John and his wife Lee, are now headed to Boston for another surgery to repair John’s diaphragm, so he will be able to breathe properly again.  Lee also lost  her Job of 30+ years at a local bank, due to a Corporate buyout and bank restructuring.

longer story short as a result of trying to make ends meet financially Lee can not afford to stay in Boston with John and will have to leave him there and come home. 

I am in hopes that between all johns friends and family and mine, we can raise enough funds to pay for food, lodging, and fuel expenses for Lee to be able to stay in Boston for the 5days John is going to need to be at and near the hospital until they can return home again.

As is said “every little bit will help” and this certainly rings true for John and Lee in this case. Let’s show our love and support for them, as they always do for all of us!!!
