My precious son, Paul McGee, recently moved to Thailand to fufill one of his dreams. He wanted to be a teacher, for children, young adults, adults...anyone that wanted to learn how to speak English. He successfully completed his training program, and before he even graduated, was offered a couple jobs. He began working at a highly respected elementary school, teaching 5th & 6th graders. His students instantly fell in love with him. Who wouldn't! What at joy, as his mother to see him living his dream.

On Tuesday, March 11th, I was informed of an awful accident that happened to my boy. He fell from his 4 story apartment building to the ground below. It's truly a miracle that Paul is alive, and thankfully, suffered no brain damage. He did however, sustain some severe injuries. His chin, jaw, & cheekbone are broken. His tongue was injured, has no hearing in his right ear, and either is missing several teeth, or they are badly misplaced. A professional interpreter has not yet been provided for me, so I can learn for certain the exact nature of all his injuries, and the sequence of steps necessary to put him back together. A couple of Paul's new friends have been helping provide as much information as they can, however, they are busy working, and cannot stay at Paul's side.

I am petitioning for help, because Paul has not yet secured health insurance, and the surgeries, hospital stay, and rehabilitation, etc...will be very costly. He has been living on very little, and was saving so he could afford a health care plan. He had good insurance here in the states, but it expired when he left the company he was working for, and in this window of time without coverage, this very unfortunate incident happened.

Paul is beloved by not only his family, but countless numbers of friends and acquaintances. His outgoing, sincere and vivacious personality make him a friend magnet wherever he goes. He is intelligent, charasmatic, hardworking, loyal, incredibly positive, and determined to make a difference in this world.

Due to not having insurance, the hospital is asking for money up front before they will continue the full treatment necessary. I don't want the absence of financial resources to halt Paul's care that he desperately needs.

Your prayers, and encouragement are so very appreciated. I am completely overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity we're already experiencing since I made his situation public. This profile is set up for donations towards Paul's treatment and recovery.
