Help for the best Dad in the World!

Harvey Fillmore is an extraordinary 72 year old man and arguably the best Dad in the Universe. 30 years ago he was in a windsurfing accident resulting in a punctured lung which led to an obscene amount of blood loss and many transfusions. A year later he discovered that he was HIV positive from those transfusions.

Since then, he has successfully opened his own Business, ridden his bicycle from Oregon to California and lived life to the fullest. 5 years ago this amazing man had a hypertensive crisis wherein the blood supply to his eyes was severely restricted rendering him legally blind.

Naturally, this was a huge set back and he would have to relearn things we all take for granted such as cooking, dialing a phone and even swimming in the ocean (a past time that wasn't going to deter him simply because he couldn't see the bouys). Even after all the curveballs life has thrown his way, he still has an optimistic outlook and brings a smile to everyone 's face with his quick wit and kindness.

Yesterday my Dad underwent an emergency triple bypass. I am writing in hopes to raise money so that I can hire a caretaker for him. Someone to cook, clean and walk his dogs so he can recover in the coming months. My mother and I are by his side at present, but in 2 weeks we will both need to be back at work.

Thanky You from the bottom of my heart!

Gia.
