Joey MCGuire, Great Father in need of your Help!!

My brother Joey McGuire is a wonderful person and a single father of 3. His children are 16, 14 and 11 years old. He has raised them for 10 years by himself. My brother was suffering from depression and for reasons even unknown to him, he tried to take his own life. He shot himself in the mouth/head with a 22. God willing my brother lived to see another day. He was in ICU for weeks and had to go through alot of physical therapy. Striving to live and get better the whole time. One of the things they had to do for him was remove part of his skull to let his brain have swelling room. When he was well enough to leave the hospital he still didn't have the piece of skull put back in yet. Later when he went back for a check up and to see when they were going to do his skull and jaw reconstruction they informed him that they were not going to do any furthur medical treatmeant for him until he paid atleast half of his medical bills. Which are around $300,000. My brother had been depressed for years, feeling that no one loved him and that he had no meaning in this world. Sometimes life puts us through loops and we don't really know how to handle them. And sometimes it takes something really drastic for the Lord to make you open your eyes. After this tragedy my brother realized just how much he means to everyone. My brother is a wonderful person, he just didnt have they best hand of cards thrown at him. my brother can't do this on his own. His children need their father back. So please if there is anything you can possibly help with, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks and God Bless You!!
