The family and friends of Phillip Shores is uniting to help raise money to help pay for medical expenses and treatment. Thank you!

Back in April of 2012 Phillip was admitted to the hospital due to a fungul infection called Blastomycosis. He had just started a new job so he did not have a health insurance yet. This was totally unexspected and really took a toll on the family both emotionally and financially.

Phillip was in the hospital for a little over a month. He had to be in a medical induced coma for about 3 weeks. The infection started out in his back and took about 2 inches out of his spine. He also had lesions on his skin and they later ended up in his lungs which is why they had to put him out. His lungs were filled completely with this infection. The doctors gave the family a 50/50 chance that he would make it. Thankfully prayers were answered and he was able to wake up. He had to be put thru so much while being in the hospital. They had to put a trach in him so the tubes from the ventilator wouldn't damage his throat muscles or vocal cords. He had to go thru physical therapy and speech therapy before he was able to go home.

He is now home but is unable to work due to his condition. He has to be on medication that is very very expensive and will have to take it for 2-4 years. His wife is the only one working right now. They also have a 20 month old little girl. Things are very tight for the family right now and they would appreciate any donations or help they could get.
