KEN KIRTLAND MEDICAL EXPENSES

KEN TOOK 2 FALLS WHILE AT HOME. THE FIRST ONE CUT DEEPLY OVER HIS EYE AND DOWN THE EYELID. HOWEVER, IT WAS THE SECOND ONE THAT WAS THE MOST SERIOUS. HE FELL BOTH TIMES AND HIT THE EDGE OF A CAST IRON RADIATOR. THE SECOND TIME, HE HIT PERFECTLY AND CAUSED 5 SKULL FRACTURES AND A SEVERE CONCUSSION. HE ALSO TORE THE MEMBRANE FLUID SURROUNDING THE SKULL AND HIS BRAIN. HE HAD BLEEDING INTO SOME AREAS OF THE BRAIN ALONG WITH BRUISING. IT IS CALLED TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY.

HE HAS NO HEARING IN HIS LEFT EAR, DIZZINESS IF SUDDEN MOVEMENT AND SEVERE MEMORY LOSS TO BOTH SHORT TERM AND LONG TERM. THE DOCTORS ARE HOPEFUL WITH TIME, MOST IF NOT ALL OF THESE PROBLEMS WILL CLEAR UP.

TIME IS WHAT HE NEEDS NOW AND LOTS OF REST. HE IS CURRENTLY UNABLE TO WORK AND CAN'T UNTIL THE DOCTORS RELEASE HIM. HE IS IN THE UNITED STATES ON CONTRACT WORK WITH A COMPUTER FIRM SO UNLESS HE CAN WORK, HE WILL NOT GET PAID.

HE HAS EXHAUSTED HIS SAVINGS ON THE EXPENSES SO FAR AND IS TERRIBLY BEHIND ON PAYMENTS AND RENT.   HE IS STRUGGLING TO PAY FOR THE MEDICINES HE NEEDS TO COMBAT THE INJURIES.

HE IS A STRANGER ADRIFT IN A STRANGE LAND WITH VERY FEW MEMORIES OF EVEN WHY HE IS HERE.  HE HAS NO FAMILY AND FEW FRIENDS.  ANY ASSISTANCE YOU CAN GIVE HIM WILL BE MUCH APPRECIATED.  ALL DONATIONS GO DIRECTLY TO HIS BANK ACCOUNT.  THIS FROM KEN:  "do not donate if it will cause you to have to give up somethng, do not do it if it puts you in distress. I cannot accept if I know you are now strained. I appreciate the love and thoughts".
