We will also be hosting a Benefit raffle for US_Army_Guy!
On October 7th, his wife gave birth to a son (Ryan Edward Mickler)
since birth, he has been in 3 different hospitals, and currently has been suffering from Pulmonary hypertension, fluid in the lungs, and jondis. Suffice to say, he can't breath on his own. Up until recently he has been on 100% oxygen (we breath 21%) but hes now at about 50%. Also they have him paralyzed so that he doesn't fight the ventilator and he can recover easier, and the doctors have been talking about operating on his heart to close a valve that should have closed by itself after birth.
Army guy is one of the nicest guys you could ever meet, he has served his country in the US Army for many years, and served us well in Afghanistan. Currently he works at a hardware store, and also goes to school full time.
His son is currently at Rush University Medical Center, which is right in right in Down Town Chicago, He's been burning through gas faster then he can afford it, and on top the that they will be needing some serious help to cover what their insurance does not.
