15 months ago, Tim Lewis had a blood vessel burst in his brain. He is now bound to a wheel chair, unable to work, and has no insurance.

Many of you knew Tim and Beth Lewis. If you didn't know them, they were the most loving people you could ever meet. Unfortunately, life as the Lewis family knew it was forever changed one afternoon.

They were getting ready to go to an Astros game with their kids (Jax - 11 & Zoey - 4) when this started. Tim had collapsed and was unable to move because a blood vessel had burst in his head requiring emergency brain surgery. After an Ambulance trip to the hospital, he was declared in critical condition and was life-flighted to St. Lukes for the actual procedure. By God's grace, it is rare for a surgeon to be present on the weekend for an emergency of this kind, however God made sure he was there and successfully removed the blood clot. They spent 18 days in ICU and finally made their way over to a Rehab hospital to further progress his recovery. It has been 15 months since the accident, and Tim continues to fight like we all knew he would. He still only has a little movement on the right side of his body, therefore, bound to a wheel chair.

Unfortunately, Tim has been unable to work since the incident, and they are really struggling right now. It's reached the point that they have now lost their home. Beth has no time for a job since taking care of Tim is a 24/7 commitment. We are asking for funds to make life easier for them and their kids going into the Christmas season. Our goal is to raise at least $10,000 for them by December 13th. Within the week following we would like to hand them a check and names of all who blessed them. We will make sure they know each individual who had a hand in it. If Tim or Beth impacted your life in some way, or you hear of this story and want to help an extraordinary family, please donate whatever you can. Every little bit helps! It is time to pay back those who have given so much.

Thank you for your support. God Bless.
