to raise medical expenses for Eileen knee replacement. The funds will be used for Eileen's medical costs and related expenses.

Eileen Hubbard, (my wife ), with limited health insurance has been battling severe osteoarthritis over the last 6 plus years. While no cure exists, patients with osteoarthritis can undergo joint replacement surgery in order to return to a normal and pain-free lifestyle. She underwent a major surgery in the spring of 2008 and had her right knee replaced. This took all of our savings. She now needs the left knee replaced but the health insurance she has does not cover this. Anything to do with joint replacement is excluded in the insurance policy. We do have our own small computer business but the operating of this business has become difficult due to several reasons. In 2008, I was diagnosed with Diabetes and in July of 2008 I had a stroke and was then diagnosed with congestive heart failure. At that time I incurred a very large amount of medical expenses that I did not have sufficient health care coverage for. Eileen now has to basically run the business as well as being my primary caregiver. The business requires a lot of heavy lifting, installing computers and normal day to day events. With Eileen’s knee she is not able to perform the physical functions and our business is in danger of having to close. I don't know what the total expenses will be, but I felt I had to get something started to alleviate the stress on Eileen and myself so that we can focus our time and energy on getting Eileen’s needed procedure done and keeping our business going. The money donated will be used to pay for medical expenses and subsequent rehabilitation. Please keep us in your prayers at this time! We need all your support and prayers to help stay strong through this ordeal.
