"Strong Like Bull" - Pat's Fight

On May 15th, 2017, my dad Patrick had a massive heart attack while laying down to take a nap. Luckily, I was right in the next room and I was able to start CPR right away. It was a scary day for our entire family, but especially for me and my sister Chelsie who already lost our mom less than two years ago. My dad's life was hanging by a thread as he was rushed to Abbott Northwestern in Minneapolis. As nurses and doctors work every day to get him through this, we are starting to realize that this is going to be a long process. He is going to be in the hospital for weeks, but possibly months. My dad started his own pest control business about a year and a half ago, and that was the main source of income in the house. He is going to be out of work long after his hospital stay, and while me and Chelsie will still be working between hospital visits, it is evident that we are going to need some help. Nobody likes asking for things, but sometimes you just have to. At first we were going to skip the gofundme and just have a benefit, but it has been brought to our attention now more than ever just how many people around the country are wanting to help us in some way. That brings us to this GoFundMe. All money raised here will be going to bills, especially the medical bills that are sure to start rolling in. Anything you guy can do, even if it is just simply sharing this around, would be amazing.

You can keep up with dad's recovery through his CaringBridge site -- which I try my hardest to update daily.
