On November 15th Philippe Morales suffered a severe heart attack. The doctors told him that he needed immediate open heart surgery because of serious cloggage. The next day they performed a quadruple bi-pass surgery on his heart and valves. This was a huge surgery and he will need at least 2 months of recovery and rehabilitation in order to return to his everyday work as a translator. He currently is caring for his 2 youngest children (14 and 16) who live at home and attend school. Before this he would cook them breakfast and make their lunches everyday. Because he is their primary caretaker he will really be in need of help when the rent and bills are due over the next two months. If anyone has anything extra they could share with this family it would greatly help them get through this rather tough holiday season. Thank you for considering to help a family in need and remember that your prayers for a speedy recovery are very welcome.
