Please help The Graff family

32507686_1538434441206520_r.jpegOn August 23, 2018, while on vacation in the Philippines with his family, Paul Graff woke up feeling confused and dizzy. His wife, Corazon, realized he was having a stroke. She rushed him to a nearby hospital. However, because of terrible traffic and inadequate hospitals, she had to take him to three different hospitals. He was admitted later that evening to the intensive care unit (ICU) at Polymedic General Hospital. 

Unfortunately, Corazon and their boys, Patrick and Preston, had to return home two days later, without him.   While Paul was in the ICU, doctors noticed there was bleeding on his brain. He went in for emergency neurosurgery where they relieved the pressure. Since then, Paul has been released from ICU, but remains hospitalized. Corazon is flying back to the Philippines, hoping that Paul will soon be stable enough to fly home. 


Paul has a very tough road ahead of him. He will need physical and occupational therapy to teach him to walk, talk, and do all of the things that we take for granted. This has been a very difficult situation for the Graff family.  Medical coverage in the Philippines is different than in the States. Corazon has to pay for every medical expense in advance and hope that the insurance reimburses them. Currently, the insurance is refusing to pay for his flight home.  Therefore, we are raising money to help the family with the mounting medical expenses and travel costs. 
 
Paul  is currently one of Troop 948's Assistant Scoutmasters. He is always the first to sign up for summer camp, hikes, and any event where he is needed. Paul has been a pivotal volunteer in the Boy Scouts of America for the last eight years.  


Please keep Paul and his family in your thoughts and/or prayers during this challenging time.
