Medical Help for James Phothyrath

Our father, James,has been struggling with his health this year. In the past few weeks he has suddenly rapidly declined and is now hospitalized and unable to care for himself. He is on the waiting list for a liver transplant, and without this transplant he will not make it.

We will go ahead with the transplant of course regardless of cost, however James has not been able to work since August. He is the sole provider of himself and his wife. His three children and and other family members have been unable to work full time due to around the clock care needed (even in the hospital), so our finances are also being drained.

After the transplant, he will not be able to work again for several months, if at all.
Currently, it is costing 300/night at Kaiser, and he is being transferred to a higher care facility which will be more expensive, not including the cost of the transplant.
It has been heart breaking to watch him suffer, and we love him so much and want him to be able to heal.
All donations will go to medical costs, bills, housing and groceries.
Thank you so much, even five dollars helps!
