Help the King of the Hill pay his medical expenses

Hi, my name is David and I am fundraising for Aklilu Abraham (the King of the Hill).

Last week Abraham became suddenly ill; he was rushed to the emergency room where a CAT scan was taken that showed he had bleeding in his skull putting pressure on his brain. He was immediately transported to UWMC so that world-expert neurosurgeons could do emergency brain surgery (at 5AM on Thursday morning). This was a very scary time for Abraham, his family and his friends; if left untreated, or if the surgery did not go well the condition could have led to a stroke that could have caused paralysis or even death. Fortunately the surgical team did a great job, and Abe did an even better job recovering; he needs to take some time away from the store, but his long-term health prognosis is good!

Unfortunately Abe's long-term financial prognosis is not so good. The medical expenses will be more than $100,000 and there is unlikely to be insurance coverage. Many people have asked if they can help out, so I am creating this GoFundMe page. If you are able to contribute, please pledge what you can afford. If you cannot afford a donation, then your good wishes will still go a long way towards supporting Abraham during his recovery. Any donations received in excess of Abraham's medical costs will be donated to a charity of Abe's choosing.
