Bring Steve Flesch back to USA

Steve, my cousin, a traveler of the world had made his way to Costa Rica back in April when he was assaulted by 3 men, mugged and shot in the back of the head. He has been lingering down in San Jose since April 2nd with a bullet in his head hooked up to machines and battling pneumonia, MRSA, staph infections- all snow balling because he cannot get home. His passport was stolen during the robbery and the hospital will not release him, not to mention he does not have health insurance. The cost of flying him home is upwards of 40,000 not to mention the initial care of transport, intake, diagnosis and treatment. Steve has never taken life for granted so far, living enough for three lifetimes in his 31 years- right now he just needs a little help.. HELP!
