Helping Hector Porteous. The funds collected will be use for medical cost and related expenses not covered by his insurance

My name is Bridget Porteous this whole thing is about my father Hector Porteous who is now in the hospital fighting to recover. My father suffered a stroke over ten yes ago he never fully recovered but he was able to have a great quality of life here at home with his family. My father recently suffered a heart attack and what seems to be another stroke. While he has been showing some improvement he still needs a lot of medicaal attention.

Doctors are telling me that he has lost the ability to swallow which now means he will need to use a feeding tube. I visit with my dad and all he can express to me how much he would like to go home and how he miss his family. It tears me appart to have him seperated from the only people he knows.

I'm asking all my family and friends to help donate money towards helping to have him able to come home. He needs medial devices as well as a full time nurse in which we can't afford. To those who all know my father knows he has always helped anyone who ever needed it and I'm just asking can everyone get togther and do the same for him. Thank you in advance the Porteous family.
