Bring Steve Flesch back to USA

$6,365 of $25k goal

Raised by 123 people in 48 months
Steve, my cousin, a traveler of the world had made his way to Costa Rica back in April when he was assaulted by 3 men, mugged and shot in the back of the head. He has been lingering down in San Jose since April 2nd with a bullet in his head hooked up to machines and battling pneumonia, MRSA, staph infections- all snow balling because he cannot get home. His passport was stolen during the robbery and the hospital will not release him, not to mention he does not have health insurance. The cost of flying him home is upwards of 40,000 not to mention the initial care of transport, intake, diagnosis and treatment. Steve has never taken life for granted so far, living enough for three lifetimes in his 31 years- right now he just needs a little help.. HELP!

In light of Steve's passing all donations will be used to take care of final expenses and ensure a proper rest for him. Should funds surpass what is needed than they will be allocated into a Steve Flesch Golf Scholarship Account. As always the family appreciates your love, generosity and understanding during this difficult time. Thank you.

What a shame. He was a great, funny guy. I enjoyed many rounds of golf with him as a teenager.

I truly hope you raise enough to bring him home.
