    Hey everyone. I'm posting here tonight to ask for help from anyone who is willing. My bestfriends 4 year old nephew is in New York City for the next month because he is having open heart surgery to save his life. They are from Trinidad and are here because the surgery was donated from a Hospital here in N.Y.C. due to their inability to afford this kind of treatment. The surgery costs $60,000, but again, it is being donated. The only thing they are responsible for is raising $5,000 to pay for Anesthesia. I wanted to reach out to everyone here on Hondaswap because I know the kind of community we are, and we have many good people on here. If anyone would be interested in donating any amount what so ever, I will be organizing the donation until January 12th which is when his surgery is scheduled to be performed. Please dont feel obligated to donate a million bucks. Any bit helps and I will personally contribute another 25% of the total collected. And for those reading that can't afford to donate, thank you also. Thank you everyone.

    For those who want to donate, my paypal address is mn92@hotmail.com. Please put Donation in the title line, and please include your name, and location. I want the family to know who its coming from.


    And thank you Brian for giving me permission to post this. Thank you everyone, and sorry for the super long post. I will be posting specific details about the hospital and the family later tonight when I get them for my buddy.

    I'll see what I can pull together to help - and I encourage others to do so. It's nice, that regardless of what some politically charged people say, that the US has this technology and there are groups out there to provide to get people here for healthcare.

    But no one is paying for Anesthesia ? That's ridiculous.

    Thanks Cel. I had the same opinion you do, but when the hospital covers $55,000 of the cost, i guess beggers cant be chosers you know? So i guess 5 grand isn't too bad.

    I am currently in debt with medical bills myself, I know it sucks. Best of luck to you, the child, and everyone who has donated.
