Bring Heather Home

My wonderful friend Heather Patterson has been in Thailand for several weeks now. She was having lots of fun at first. Her and her friend from Thailand both got food poisoning TWICE. As soon as she got past that they decided to go ahead and make the most out of the rest of their trip and went scuba diving. In a freak accident her lung collapsed. She is currently in ICU in Phuket, Thailand. She was supposed to fly back to America on the 5th. It will be several weeks after she is out of the hospital that she will be able to fly again. So far she's just been paying her medical bills as she goes along, but she is not sure how long she can keep that up, aside from medical bills, it's going to cost a ton in hotels and new travel plans, new plane ticket, etc. Heather is such an amazing, selfless, giving, loving person. She would give someone the shirt off her back if needed. She is a disabled veteran she gave 10 years of her life to the Marine Corp until she was injured and medically discharged. So please help us get her home!!!!
