Robert will never recover! With your help, Priscilla can keep their family home and provide the necessities to keep Robert comfortable!

Robert Black was a hard working family man when tragedy struck! Robert has "Non-Herpatic Encephalitis" which means in layman terms--the doctors have no idea how Robert contracted this infection to his brain. Robert's quality of life consists of seizures anytime day or night. He is heavily medicated to prevent further damage to his brain. He has lost more than 75% of his memory. He doesn't remember his wedding day, the births of his 3 children and raising them! His care is currently provided by his loving wife, Priscilla, (known as Pris to her friends!), and their 3 grown children. Robert's medical insurance is provided through Medicare. Social Security Disability is not enough to cover expenses, medication, and anything that Robert needs to care for his daily needs. Pris works diligently to put food on the table and pay for the household expenses. Their expenses far exceed their income. They have been in their home for most of their married life, but the economic downturn hit them hard. Pris fights monthly with B** of A***a to keep her modest home. With the upkeep of a home built in the late 1950's there are major expenses that can no longer be avoided. She is currently battling corroded pipes and daily backups into the tub. The holidays are especially hard because there are no extras! Robert and Pris need some additional financial aid.
