Help Dr. Goings Continue to Fight

Hello Everyone,

As some of you know, Dr. Curtis Goings has been hospitalized in critical condition for the last month. He suffered complications from an internal issue that caused him to obtain an aggressive infection and pneumonia. His mother has been in Atlanta since Curtis was admitted to the hospital on February 18. She has come in from out of town to be at his side as he continues to fight his way back to us. Everyday, hearing her voice and feeling her warm and loving touch will play a huge role in his hopeful recovery. She doesn't drive long distances and has stayed very close to the hospital because of Curtis' critical prognosis. She is currently staying at the hotel inside of the hospital that he is in. Costs for hotel and incidentals have been mounting. As this process will most certainly be a lengthy one, we ask that you contribute on Curtis' behalf to help fund him and his mother's living and incidental expenses so he can continue to have her by his side. In addition, his mother has had to retain counsel to be able to legally conduct Curtis' everyday business on his behalf while he is hospitalized. Curtis is an amazing math teacher at The Westminster Schools and was recently awarded The William A. Parker, Sr. Mentoring Faculty Award (Eleventh Grade Student). He is also a member of the BridgePointe Church where he sings in the church choir. Anything you can do will be greatly appreciated. Every little bit counts. Any amount or type of help is greatly appreciated. If you'd like to donate via V E N M O, you can do so @Ruth-Blanding.


P.S. Thank you to his friends, colleagues and especially his students, past and present, for reaching out from across the country with your thoughts, prayers and all of the wonderful cards.
