Henry my brother. Henry is Mentally Handicapped and is 53 yet has the mentality of a 5 year old. He has acute pancreatitus and has been in the hospital now for over a month and will be here for at least 2 more. We are at Shands and Henry has lived with me for 10 years now and his life has become mine and mine his. Henry goes everywhere with me. My name is August Hanson his younger brother. Henry is my life and we really could use some help right now with the hotels and food up here in Gainesville Fl are way expensive. he is going in for surgery on Wed. 3/6/13 to drain his pancreas and remove his gall bladder. I have never had to ask before for anything. I work very hard 60 hours a week but have been out of work now for over a month. Our savings has depleted to almost nothing and we are just stuggling. I promise if there is any money left i will pass it on to whomever needs care. We have never ever had to ask for anything as a matter of fact we have always given. I have never seen Henry pass a fireman asking for collections or the lady ringing the bell outside the store or even the man on the corner. Even with his mentality he knows that when someone is in need that he is to give. If he has a nickel, Dime, Quarter or dollar he will put it in the jar or give it to whom needs it. He is very afraid and scared. He does not even know why this has happened. With his 5 year old mentality he is a child my child and i will be here with him if i have to sleep in the car. He is my brother and i promise you this. I will be with him 24/7 and will be by his side so everytime he opens his eyes he will see his brother and he will remain calm. I have him at the best hospital possible Shands in Gainesville Fl. He is outgoing and everyone that has ever had the pleasure of meeting my brother has fell in Love from day one. He is special that boy and its not because of his handicap it is because of his personality. This boy has hair as red as red can be and so many freckels that you cant connect the dots if yoiu wanted to. I love my brother very much and in this time of need i feel blessed that we have so many friends. Please if there is anything that you can do for us please do not hesitate to donate. I promise the money will be used for things that we need right now and now only. I really dont even know how to ask for help i have never had to and to be in this situation makes me feel helpless. Just a few dollars from everyone would help us find somewhere to stay as well as pay for his treatment and for his needs while we are here. I will be back at work as soon as i can and i will pay it forward i promise that. The people that know us the Hansons know that we would not ask if we didnt need it. If you want to see Henry and myself you can go to my Facebook page it is August Hanson in Brooksville Fl. There will be a place to make donations there as well as San Antonio Citizens Federal Credit Union. In Dade City Fl. So please take the time to go and read the story on Facebook the pictures will be there as well as our story. Thank you all from the bottom of our Hearts.
