Rob Russell's Medical Expenses

My brother Rob Russell was attacked by a dog in the evening on 1/30/20 while walking in the door to his house. He was rushed to Falmouth hospital and it was determined that he would need to be sent to Brigham and Women's hospital in Boston due to the extensive amount of reconstructive surgery needed on his face. Part of his lip and nose were taken off. Due to the loss of work and future medical expenses that he will incur, any monetary help sent his way would help out immensely to take some of the burden off during his recovery.  Some of you may have seen the photo posted right after the attack which was extremely disturbing. For the sake of sharing, we don't want to scare anyone. This picture was taken upon being treated. The hospital and emergency expenses are unknown at the moment, but there will be follow up surgery needed next week for his nose. If everyone donated even $5 and shared his story, a little bit could go a long way. Please send healing thoughts and prayers to Rob while he's healing physically and emotionally from this trauma.
