2020 hit everyone hard, but this tragedy is significant. In October Bailey felt increasing pain in her arm, and learned she had a blood clot that required surgery. Thankfully Bailey made a full recovery. During Covid Michael was laid off from his job as a pipe fitter and welder. As you can imagine finances grew tight between the medical costs and lack of income. Finally, at the end of 2020, all three family members contracted the Covid-19 virus. Debbie and Bailey recovered but Michael did not. He was admitted in the hospital after two weeks of fighting the virus at home. After almost six weeks of fighting as hard as he could to heal Michael passed away with Debbie, Bailey and his doctor by his side.
Debbie and Bailey have been through so much in the past four months, and never asked for anything but prayers. If you could please find it in your heart to donate any amount please click the link below. More importantly please offer prayers for Michael's soul and healing for Bailey, and Debbie.
