About This Activity

My name is Brian Hastings and I have never asked for help in my life. My wife Christine and I have 2 handicapped children that she has taken care of her whole life, but now she wont be able to take care of them the same way in the future. She just had open heart surgery and is hospitalized and will not be physically able to lift and take care of them. She has done the job equivalent to 2 full time nurses her whole life as they has severe Cerebral Palsy.. They need to be lifted, fed by feeding tube and administered all their medicines for seizure contro etc.. While trying to take care of my wife through the open heart surgery, our daughter had an accident and she is in hospital with fractured bones in her pelvis and she just had her surgery this morning with a long recovery proccess aheadof her. We are going to need full time nursing care for the forseeable future along with some huge medical bills. I dont know how much they will be but am certain they will probably be 10's of thousands of dollars we are talking about. I am embarrassed to be doing this but i am trying to do what I can to improve their life in the future. You can't imagine the burden and fear. If you could help my family and I out, we would be eternally grateful. God Bless.
