Help John & his Family

My name is Pete Curtis, one of John's brothers. John has been batteling leukemia as well as severe rhumetoid arthritis. He has been taking immunune suppresant drugs for the leukemia. This past week, he contracted a cold that rapidly tuned to pnemonia. It all came to a head while in Boston for routine appointments. He began having diffuculty breathing. John is in the critical care unit at Massachussets General Hospital, where he remains on life support. Since taking ill, he was discovered to have infuluenza, diabetic ketosis, and a strep infection. He has also experienced kidney failure and is on a dialysis machine. The past week has been a roller coaster for him, but lucky for us he is stubborn, and holding on and fighting. His family is in need of assistance. As many of you know or have experienced, it is a huge burden of families to miss work, travel and lodging expenses, etc. It is too early for the medical bills to start accumulating, but they will be overwhelming very soon . His wife, Bonnie has been by his side, along with his kids and family. With your support, we can help John's family with their overwhelming expenses current and future. Expenses at home are mounting as well.  John has given so much his whole life to family , friends, and complete strangers. He has never taken a handout, and would probably hate that I am doing this, but his family cannot go this alone. Please help them to overcome this unthinkable nightmare. PLEASE post this to your facebook wall and help spread the word any way you can. John has a lot of people in his corner, and together with our prayers and postive thoughts we will all overcome. Thank you SO MUCH!!!
