 ORANGE, TX
This is our parents, Les and Maxine Patin, who were married for 64 years in December prior to our mother passing in July, 2017. Unfortunately, though, for 40 of those years, they experienced crippling medical bills and expenses due to multiple surgeries, medical conditions, and prescriptions. Between them, there have been at least 30 surgeries, with two major ones as recent as this past April and May. Prior to our mother's passing, our parents were forced to leave their home and enter into an assisted living facility in 2017.  In July, our mother passed and in August, Hurricane Harvey filled the assisted living facility with 4 feet of water and filth.  Our father was evacuated by boat to a Red Cross shelter that had no power or water.  After 24-48 hours trying to find him and resettle him, we moved him in with family for a very long and trying 6 months.  He is now back in the facility, but he lost everything he owned during the flood.  What a devastating year.  The latest 3 prescriptions filled while mother was still living cost our father $1,000 out of pocket at our local pharmacy. He just turned 85 in January and he is  truly struggling to meet expenses. Our father worked for a chemical plant for many years, fought in Korea, and along with our mother raised four children. They were good neighbors, faithful friends, and put their Christian faith into practice on a daily basis. Our father still practices his Christian faith wherever he goes. Our father is currently struggling with the red tape required by the VA to get the benefits for which he is due but not yet receiving.  The monthly charges for staying at the assisted living facility are difficult to pay.

We are reaching a point, as their children, of not knowing what else to do.  We are, without a doubt, helping in every way we possibly can but at this point it is just not enough.  

We pray that this meets you well and is in no way leaving a burden.  We are afraid of what we woud miss if we were to never ask.  

Thank you on behalf of our entire family for your consideration.
