Patrick is a man of few words, but when he has something to say, he speaks in a baritone voice and you can't help but feel at ease. He was active in Dawson's soccer games throughout high school, attends Kailey's recitals, and has been an amazing husband to April for over 20 years.
Patrick has shown improvement; more than we expected. 72 hours after his stroke, he was able to move to a chair with assistance, and in the next two days, was opening his eyes and walking short distances. However, his road to recovery is long, and he will be out of work for months, if not longer. His insurance covers some, but he has no benefits from work, and will be without pay for this time. April is a full-time teacher, but they depend on two incomes.
Patrick and April have recently moved their family into a new home, and Dawson will be attending college in the fall. We are asking for support to help pay what insurance doesn't cover, as well as provide some security so they can keep the house in the coming months, and Dawson can begin his education in the fall.
His one week of sick time ran out on 7/14, and any help you are able to provide will be appreciated.
