The Urbans are a family of 9 who also foster 4 at-risk children under the age of 4, having adopted 4 of their previous foster kids.  Clint was a hardworking man with his own small plumbing company which is the only source of income that provided for this large family.  His wife, Alisa, helped with the business from home while raising and schooling the kids.

 

On February 19th, Clint came home from work around 8 pm and felt his leg going numb.  He was taken to Manatee ER and a blood clot in his right leg was discovered and he was admitted.  Each day, though, he got worse until his kidneys and liver began to fail and his heart stopped 3 days after he was admitted.  They were able to get him back, but he was in critical condition in ICU.  As you can imagine, the medical bills were piling up.  Clint had health insurance, but needed to meet a high deductible of $7,900 first. The initial Go Fund Me goal was $7,900 and over double was collected thanks to the generosity of many family, friends, co-workers, and even strangers.  THANK YOU SO MUCH!

 

After a long and valiant fight for the last 7 weeks, Clint passed away at 1 am on Saturday, April 13th at Tampa General Hospital ICU.  He was only 46.  He fought so hard and went through so much, but his gentle heart finally gave out and the extremely difficult decision was made to let this amazing man go and enter eternal peace and rest.  

 

Clint had a genetic heart condition that took his young father and grandmother.  In order to test his children to see if it has been passed down, Clint needed to be autopsied at the family’s expense.  Clint had so many family and friends that a large funeral service is being planned to properly say our good-byes to this most amazing man.  For these additional costs, this Go Fund Me account will stay open a little longer.  Will you held support Clint’s family as they struggle to cope with this devastating loss and try to move forward without Clint’s sole income?
