The family and friends of Elijah Thomas are uniting to raise money to help Elijah recover from a Brain abscess and heart issues.

In April of 2010 Elijah Thomas was rushed by ambulance to the Hospital in Ellsworth, Maine. He had fully seized and was not responding to anyone; this lasted for 3 hours. At the local hospital he was then transferred to Bangor, Maine where it was discovered that he had a large brain abscess that was impeding some of his motor function. The Hospital in Bangor then arranged to transfer Elijah to Children's Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts where he would undergo a craniotomy to remove the abscess. After many tests, Children's Hospital also discovered a hole in Elijah's heart that would need to be repaired after recovery from the brain surgery.

Complications from his condition have caused multiple stomach infections, chronic pain in both of his arms and hands, and the need for intensive therapy for damage caused in his brain. The family has traveled from coastal Maine to Boston several times a month since April and will need to continue for Elijah to receive specialized therapy and pain management.

This battle for Elijah has drained the family both mentally and financially. Mounting medical bills and travel expenses have been overwhelming and have caused much hardship. Please consider helping Elijah. We appreciate every donation, word of support and prayer. We still believe in miracles.
