Medical Fund 4 Proud Single Father

Thank you for stopping for a moment to help our beloved friend and coworker, Pedro.  Pedro  is in the midst of a sudden, unforeseen medical emergency. He is currently in th ICU on a ventilator due to a septic shock which developed after he had a tooth pulled.  Not only did the infection spread to his bloodstream, the swelling was so great that he had to be intubated and placed on longterm sedation until his airway is no longer in jeopardy. He also required emergency surgery to drain the abscess and relieve the swelling.  He is slowly recovering, but his recovery will be long and difficult.  He has been in an induced coma now for 6 days with at least a few more likely. Pedro and his son are going to face a mountain of medical bills.  ICU care isn't cheap.  If you have a few extra bucks to spare, please consider helping Pedro out.   
Pedro is one of the most beutiful people I know.  We work together daily.  He is always full of sunshine, and I can always count on him for a smile and a hug.  I don't know of a single soul in the hospital where we work who doesn't think the same including his patients.  Little old ladies are his specialty. Pedro, lives for his young son, Camilo.  I have never known a more loving and dedicated father.  This tragedy happened at one of the worst possible times as Pedro was concerned with trying to help his Parents who live in Puerto Rico, which as you know is devestated.  He will have alot on his mind when he awakens from this induced coma.  I hope to be able to at least ease some of the stress with financial assistance.  Thank you so much for your kindness and generosity.
