Hey Guys, Wendy and I have been talking this over and are working on a way to help my assistant at work. In a span of three days we witnessed my assistant go from having a sinus infection to being laid up in ICU with a syndrome called Guillain-Barre. He was admitted into the ICU the day before Thanksgiving and is now been placed on a ventilator & feeding tube. He will be on the ventilator for a week as of now. He is... currently sedated and has received 5 plasma-exchanges already. I know from reading on his syndrome and length of stay, he has well over $20K in medical expenses alone. I know he will have a long recovery through rehab as he could not sit up or walk prior to being placed on the ventilator. This potential deadly syndrome paralyzes your extremities to eventually your organs thus his breathing problems. Lewis has been employed with us for only 5 months. He is a Marine that served in Iraq but has not been approved under the VA program as of yet and I am unsure of his medical coverage and how this will play out, but he has a 2 year old and his wife just found out she is pregnant. Yesterday, a co-worker and I went to his house and hung Christmas lights and cleaned his yard up to help his wife and child through this time. Our company is sponsoring his Christmas for their needs and presents and when I called her to ask for a Christmas list, she broke down in tears and could not continue talking with me. I was hoping that if you have an opportunity to donate, I would like to raise some funds for this family to offset medical bills and help towards rehab. Anything you possibly could spare, $5, $10, $20, will be given to his family and I will include your contact information so they know where it came from. Our family and certain co-workers have committed to donating personal amounts. We thought we would reach out to our friends and see if anyone was looking for someone to sponsor this Holiday season. Please consider passing this link around to your friends. Lets all pull together and make this truly a Christmas miracle.

Thank you

The Rawleigh Family
