Phill's Fearsome Fight

In the early morning hours of December 23, 2017 Phill was critically injured when he lost control of his car while driving home from a long shift at work.  Phill awoke on Christmas Eve in the Trauma ICU with a machine breathing for him and in excruciating pain.  Phill is facing life altering spinal cord injuries and years of rehabilitation. Phill is a loving husband and a father of 2 small children. He is the sole financial provider for his family.  Phill and his wife, Sylvia, chase the American Dream with Sylvia leaving her social work career helping troubled youths in the community to raise her family. Phill is facing many long months and years of rehabilitation in specialized treatment centers many long miles away from his family and they need your help.   Phill is staple in the local the hospitality industry, working at such places as Miller's Ale House, Pincher's Crab Shack, Stevie Tomatoes, La Bamba, and Moran's. He worked 6 days a week, and has no medical or disability insurance. Medical bills are rapidly increasing to insurmountable levels and with Phill facing a transfer to a specialized rehabilitation center several hours away from home he and his family are unsure where help can be found. Let's help the Hursell's any way we can!  Any amount is helpful and even the smallest amount is greatly appreciated and can be used to help Phill and his wonderful family.
