Medical Bills help for a Veteran

I am writing you on the behalf of the Hubert Delome, a Vietnam Veteran, Husband, Father, Grand Father and Great Friend that has been Hospitalized in ICU at Christus St Patrick Hospital in Lake Charles, La. since December 30th, 2009 due to complications following a Heart Attack and Quadruple Bypass. Hubert has endured many surgeries following due to complications but still fights. Even though the commute from Hospital to home is a mere 45 minutes, his wife, Marie, keeps a constant vigil, sleeping in the ICU Waiting Room, patiently waiting on her 15 minute visit with her husband. She has only returned home a couple times since he has been hospitalized.

Hubert is a member of The VVA, A Freemason and a retiree of Centurytel. He is a man of few words but may actions, living by the creed "Deeds not Words". Doing for his friends and family without them asking and accepting nothing in return but perhaps a glass of ice water. A sip from the water facet will do him fine too but he'll ask before taking it. He bought himself a small fishing boat a few years back, only taking time enough to himself to get the bottom wet twice. Riding his grand-daughter around on his lawnmower takes priority over fishing.

We are all aware that monetary donations or material donations will not bring Hubert home any quicker, but we are also aware that the worry and stress of mounting medical bills that can result in bankruptcy and financial ruin is as big a killer as any sickness. I'm sure you can imagine the cost of 3 months of ICU. Hundreds of thousands so far and he's not out of the woods yet. Your contribution of any amount between $50-$10,000 would greatly help.
