My cousin Luke and his family are in need of help. Due to a recent trauma that hit the Vassey family, they are struggling financially.

On September 18th 2012, Hannah(Luke's wife) came home to find Luke barely breathing and called 911. They rushed him to the hospital and he was put in ICU on life support. They were unsure how long his brain went without oxygen so it was difficult to tell what the outcome would be. They would try to bring him out of sedation every few days and he would just get irritated. On September 21st, Luke had a seizure. After the seizure they noticed that he had swelling in the brain. The next day doctors didn't give us much hope for him. By Monday he had started making small improvements even on sedation, Tuesday he squeezed my hand. But on Thursday September 27th both of Luke's lungs collapsed. They put tubes in them to open them up and shortened his trach. This seemed to help! They kept him sedated a few days to let his body rest. On Sunday September 30th he started waking up. He slowly started coming back to us! By Tuesday he was laughing and could move his head and could really squeeze your hand. On Wednesday October 3rd they transported him to Crawley's a rehab center in Boiling Springs, N.C. Since all of this has happened his wife has been out of work and they are having a hard time paying all of their bills. Not knowing how long he will have to be in the rehab center to get back to 100% this family will need help! Please help me raise money for Luke and his family (Hannah and Mady) please also be in prayer that he will be home soon and back to normal. Thanking God everyday that he is still here with us and that he is getting better everyday!!
