Family and friends of Pat and Steve Lewis are uniting to help them through this medical and financial struggle. We'd love your support!

On Feb. 17th, Pat was feeling very ill and Steve decided to take her to the emergency room. While there, it was discovered that Pat had a very aggressive and fast-moving infection. She was rushed to surgery the next morning which ended up removing some painful and inflamed lymph nodes from her chest. She was in a severe state of sepsis. She was placed in a medically induced coma and received ongoing dialysis. After several days, the doctors decided to try to wake her up. It took about a week to come out of the coma. She has limited movement and is going to require a lot of rehab to get back to her normal self again. She has been improving greatly over the last few weeks, but it will take time. Doctor's are calling her a miracle!

All this time spent in the Critical Care Unit at the hospital and the time that she will need to spend at a rehab facility is certainly wracking up quite a large medical bill, not to mention the fact that Pat & Steve have not been able to work at their place of business during all of this. Also, being small business owners, they do not have any health insurance. This is precisely why we are here.

Please feel free to contact us at with any ideas, suggestions or questions. We are certainly open to any other avenues that we can pursue to help Pat and Steve out!

Thank you so much for your time and we truly appreciate your help.

~ Pat & Steve's family ~
