Michael's Medical Fund

Michael is a 3 year old, turning 4 on 11/15/19. On 10/6/19, he was playing at home like any typical child. Michael was watching television but went into the kitchen after his mom stepped out briefly to check on the new baby. There was a pot of water boiling on the stove and somehow, Michael got a hold of it, causing all the hot water to fall onto him, causing him severe second degree burns. A little more than 50% of his body was burned and the family is in urgent need of financial assistance to travel to Trinidad for the operation. The family recently lost a lot in the hurricanes that hit the Caribbean recently, and live on the small island of Virgin Gorda. The medical expenses are a large hindrance in the commencement of his treatment and admittance of the hospital. The hospital alone requires a down payment before any surgeries can take place, plus the costs of travel. Medical insurance is not an option as it is not something that is used in the British Caribbean islands.
