Medical /Hospital expenses incurred

You guys, our dear friend needs your help! Bracy “Hollis” Lilley grew up in The Great Dismal Swamp of NC.  He graduated from Nansemond Suffolk Academy and then went on to East Carolina University and studied botany. Over time he developed a love of plants that will never leave him. Unexpectedly he became ill the 3rd week in August of this year. What started out as food poisoning turned into Gangrene which finally landed him the hospital on September 12. They had to do an emergency surgery immediately and gave him a 40/60 chance for survival. The first week was extremely scary and since he was hospitalized he has had over a dozen surgeries so far. He remained in ICU for over 2 weeks but, has now been stepped down to a lower level of care praise God.
He then had another 2-3 weeks in the hospital at least and more surgeries ahead as this is vital to keep him healing. He is still dealing with this and was moved to a rehab facility a little over a month ago. This is where we need your help.      
1. Please pray for his health and that he continue to heal completely. Please pray for his family and friends who are enduring so much to be there for him and try and tend to his life while he can’t. The fact that Hollis won’t be on his property for months and will be without any income is devastating. Please consider donating to help with the tremendous medical expenses that are still mounting 3. In addition, there are lots of expenses to travel back and forth to Elizabeth City which is where he currently has to be.
Please donate to help offset the money that it’s costing to maintain daily trips to be there and support our friend. Something like this is very hard to bear as your life gets turned completely upside down overnight as his was. After all he is battling right now, Please help with the expenses that arise from this awful life changing illness as well as any unexpected Medical cost we aren’t yet aware of. Every single donation no matter how small will help make a difference for this. If you cannot donate can you please share this with your friends and help us serve someone who needs us!
