Patrick McNelis

On 8/26/17,  Patrick McNelis was brutally attacked and beaten by a drunk.  The brutal attack left Patrick with two fractures in his skull, and  facial lacerations. The police had to tazer the drunk in order to cuff him and arrest him. Patrick was airlifted to a trauma hospital where he was put into a medical induced coma. His skull had to be stapled back together.  Patrick is a kind gentle man who always stops to  help strangers. He's a loving husband and father of three grown children,  one young child, and  a grandfather of six. On Friday, Sept. 1st, Patrick awoke from his coma, but has no memory of the assault. Patrick is now on a long road to recovery, starting with physical therapy. Patrick and his wife Michele (a home maker) need help to cover the medical expenses not covered by their insurance.  Please donate to help this family.
