Getting Grandpa home to Texas

John Helton aka: " John the Painter"  is our 90 year old father, grandfather and great grandfather.  During a visit to California from his home in Texas to spend some time with family, he has become very ill and is now requiring constant medical attention.  We are needing financial help to get this WWII veteran transported back home to Texas where his family there can help get him the continuous care he is in need of. 
    The financial need is a medical transport from the facility he is in right now in California, to the airport.  From there a medical flight with the necessary medical staff and facilities to moniter him during the flight to Texas.  Lastly, another medical transport from the airport in Texas, to the new care facility located close to family members. 
     Our goal of $5,000.00 will cover all of the arrangements needed for transportation, and anything over and above will assist with the ongoing care he requires.
     John and his family want to thank you so much for any support you can offer our family.  Financial needs are important, but prayers are also very important to us as well.  If you can help us with both, it would be greatly appreciated.
