This fund is being raised on behalf of the Bloodworth Family to help cover the cost of overseeing medical care, handle final arrangements, and any remainder to support the kids' educational and daily needs.
James (44), Jennifer (31), and their children Emma (10) and Blake (7) were faced with the horrific news that James Bloodworth had a terminal heart condition after he had a series of heart attacks last August 2016. They were informed that James was in need of a heart transplant but unfortunately wouldn't survive the surgery nor would he qualify for a transplant. The past year has been spent wondering what each day would bring, knowing that James was living on borrowed time.
Sadly, on Monday August 14th James was taken to the hospital and admitted with Pneumonia. He had to be quickly intubated (put on a ventilator) under full sedation, and went septic shortly after. He had a lung collapse so had a chest tube put in, and kidney failure shortly followed. After multiple failed attempts to wean him from the ventilator, the family is facing the inevitable that they dreaded a year ago.
James has no life insurance, and no disability insurance. He has been out of work since last year when this nightmare began, and the family is in need of support to continue overseeing his medical care, day to day expenses , as well as to start making final arrangements.
James's pride and joy is his children, and he would not want them to want for anything. Any remaining sum will be used for their benefit.
Any gift is greatly appreciated, as are all of your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
