Thank you for taking the time to read Jim's story. You can follow his updates at

On December 11,2010 Jim came to the hospital with all over numbness. His blood pressure was really high and his speech was slurred. He ended up having a hemmorage stroke at his brain stem. It was too dangerous to operate so he was put on medication and thankfully the bleeding stopped. He spent 3 days in a coma and we were given little hope he would survive. However the dr's don't know my Jim and what a fighter he is. He woke from his coma and has been fighting ever since. He has had many other issues come up along the way including blood clots, pneumonia, gi bleeding and several dangerous fevers but he continues to fight. He is still very weak and not able to care for himself. Even though he continues to be in the hospital I am by his side and helping to care for him.

With only working part time Jim didn't have insurance and his medical bills continue to grow. We are well over 1 million dollars already and no end in sight. We continue trying to get medical assistance and disability but they won't cover everything.

We greatly appreciate everyone who has helped us and continue to help us through prayers and support. We are planning a spaghetti dinner to help and we will be setting up a fund at his bank for direct donations. If you prefer to mail donations they can be sent to:
