Rick's Family Medical Fund

$4,650 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 42 people in 13 months
It is with a heavy heart and much sadness that I make this request for help !

My brother, Richard Neal Byrne, 63 yrs old has been in Intensive care at the Methodist Hospital in Omaha, Nebraska since December 31, 2016.   He was diagnosed with pneumonia and a blood infection.  While we are hoping for the best, we are preparing for the worst.  

The medical bills are mounting along with everyday expenses for his wife Kim and their daughter Kayla.  
None of them have worked since Rick went into to the hospital.    Each day has been a great challenge, taking one step forward and two steps back.   Kim and Kayla have not left his side since Rick went in the hospital.

My brother, Rick, and his family are hard working,  kind and caring people.   Over the years he has had 2 heart attacks,   A triple by pass and recently prostate cancer with the removal of his prostate.

In 2010,  my brother and his wife lost their only son to a freak accident.   They now treasure the time they can spend with their sons 3 children, Catie, Lexi and Hunter . 

I have so so much I need to say but I am having a tough time trying to get it across.
My brother, Rick, is a good man and would never ask anyone for help.  I am asking for him.
His body  is tired and is not able to fight all the complications he has encountered with this very serious illness.  

Not only are your prayers valuable and apprecited to us but if you are able to help Rick and his family, I am asking you to contribute to this fund and ease the burden of the enormous medical bill along with all the everyday expenses they are facing.

I am setting up this fund so that all donations will be recieved by Kim.

I so appreciate everyone who has taken the time to read this.    I also want to thank you in advance for your donation ad for caring about my brother and his family.
