(Note: The laptop has been purchased. See detailed description below)
Angus has a long road ahead of him as far as recovery time. Likely months and months will go by and he's been an active young man in the past so this will not be easy for him. As some of you know, Angus is a Gamer. Meaning, he absolutely loves PC and console gaming. What we're planning to help him fill some of this time and also keep him entertained and educated, is to get him a really nice Laptop. PC Gaming is pretty demanding as far as hardware goes and it takes a fairly powerful laptop to run any of today's games. So to meet those demands as well as take into account portability and longevity, Angus's uncle Craig W has selected an Alienware M14x Laptop with a few upgrade options. This laptop is highly recognized as one of the best gaming laptops available. The M14x has got a slightly smaller screen and is more portable than the 17 inch version. The 17 inch version is a whole lot larger in size, weight, and power consumption. This laptop costs around $1900.00 plus shipping (amount updated). For anyone that is interested in contributing, please see the button on the upper right section of this blog. If you click that button, you can make a donation toward this goal. You can donate via PayPal account, or if you don't have a PayPal account you can donate via Credit/Debit card. Anything donated over the amount of the cost of the laptop will be used to bridge the gap that will likely exist in what Health Insurance does not cover as well as other expenses that the family may incur that are directly related to Angus' illness. Note please that the Paypal  receipt email will not have Angus's name on it because you have to be 18 years of age. It will have Angus's uncle Craig W's name as the recipient.

Update: Because of the generosity of you all, family and friends, the laptop computer for Angus has been ordered! We were even able to add Microsoft Office 365, Accidental Damage Protection, and a Screen Protector to the order. Angus will need the Microsoft Office for school, so that was wonderful. The Accidental Damage Protection will be very useful, since it covers the laptop for any and all accidental damage, theft, etc. The screen protector will help protect the LCD screen from scratches and such that may occur as a result of the current situation in the hospital as well as when Angus is able to go home.

Any further donations as well as the remainder of the current donations will be used in bridging the gap that will likely exist in what Health Insurance does not cover, as well as other expenses that the family may incur that are directly related to Angus' illness. 

Craig, Jennifer, Angus, and their family want to thank you all so much for all you have done, are doing, and will do. Jennifer asked me to tell you all that words can't possibly convey their gratitude.
