Bring Michael Home

Michele's 29 year old son, Michael, has been living in Japan, where he suddenly became ill and is currently on life support. Due to the recent illness and subsequent death of her father, Michele is struggling with the additional cost and (now) unpaid time away from work that will be required of her to travel to be with her son and then to bring him home. She left today, February 14th, to be by his side at the urging of his doctors in Japan, under the advisement that time is of the essence. 

As we now find ourselves trying to think of ways to be of comfort and help to Michele, we've decided to try to ensure that being short on funds is not an additional cause of stress. 

Thank you in advance for your kind thoughts and support during this difficult time.
