Emergency support for Baby Michael

Support for Baby Michael A. Hoover's Family.

Michael Anthony Hoover was born April 24th 2015 a healthy happy baby to wonderful parents Jennifer and Kenneth Hoover of Oil City PA. Along with Jennifer's son Gregory they make the perfect loving family. Tragically on June 1st 2015 in the early morning Michael was not himself, he was lethargic and pale. He stopped breathing and his heart stopped in his fathers arms, luckily his father Ken was able to revive him. A ambulance rushed Michael to a nearby hospital, in that time his heart stopped 2 more times and he was again revived. He was Airlifted to Pittsburgh children's hospital where he remains in ICU and has not yet awoken. On the way to the Pittsburgh hospital the Hoover Family van engine blew, they quickly found a way to Pittsburgh but now have no vehicle. Unfortunately their van was impounded from the side of the road where they had to leave it.

Michael continues to fight and is showing signs of improvement every day, his brain activity is normal and the hospital staff are doing everything they can to help him. So far there is no cause for why this happened and it looks like a long road to recovery ahead. His parents along with his brother Gregory are currently waiting for housing from Ronald McDonald House so they can stay near their son to help him fight through this.

Please help this family, they are the kindest most giving people you can ask for and they need help. Not only did their only mode of transportation break down but they are not able to replace it; they are not able to bring in income while they get through this for the basics like food and bills. Kenneth and Jennifer would be the first to help anyone, lets see how much we can help them during their dire time of need.

Thank you and Bless you.
