Fund the Bubby PEZ's Recovery (Gene Young)

$1,510 of $2,000 goal

Raised by 42 people in 1 month
As many of you know, Gene "Bubby PEZ" Young experienced a large stroke in the middle of the night and had to be taken to the ER in an ambulance. Once there, they realized that he had suffered one or more strokes over a period of time.  He is recovering in the Inpatient Rehab facility.  We are asking for funds to help cover travel costs and lost income for him , until he finishes his fight with Insurance, and his job. He also has a dog that is going to need to be looked after while mom and Dad are at the hospital. Please consider donating to this fund to help offset the multiple costs of having a loved one in the hospital, especially when insurance is being a pain in the ass.

At this point, donating random PEZ would just add to the stress of the family, so at this point, we are asking for monetary donations only.

Thanks to everyone who donates. Any amount is great. give whatever you can. If everyone gave $10, this fundraiser would be over in 8 minutes.

Another update on our son, Gene Charles Young. He is still trying as hard as he can in therapy & all aspects of his illness. He has had some severe set backs this week. He has had a code called on him , has an infection and is having some anxiety as to being able to get up on his feet and not fall (totally understandable). This whole thing is surreal to me; I want my son back; I feel broken and like a part of me is missing. We need prayer desperately.

Another update from his MOM:

Seems like the days run together and I don’t get messages answered (sorry; I am over whelmed). Our son, Gene Charles Young will be an inpatient for a while. He is going through intense rehab. Please keep up the prayers, messages and many of you have asked about sending a card. He is at Carle Hospital 611 W Park St Urbana, Il 61801 Room 3314. He is still not ready for company yet, but that will come in time. He was , however, simply thrilled when Pastor Dan Mikel & his wife stopped to see him and pray with him.

Here is today’s update on our son, Gene Charles Young (Bubby Pez). He is fighting as hard as he possibly can; he just has a whole lot of work ahead of him. I feel like he is trying to climb a hill and it is a “mud slide” and he slides back down (if that makes sense).We are praying fervently for at least some of his motor skills to come back & that he can eventually get back home. We took Lucy with us today, but poor little Lucy did not know what to think about her Bubby being in that strange place. #callingallprayerwarriors
