It is with great worry and sadness that I share the news that our friend and our art/layout director at Frog God Games is in surgery today to remove all or part of his foot as a result of complications from diabetes.

Chuck is a Gulf War veteran who lives outside of Tampa FL. The Veterans Administration hospital in Tampa is his only health insurance.  He currently lives over an hour from this hospital. He has no options for care closer to his home.

When he gets out of the hospital, he will urgently need personal help (care and food), transportation to and from physical therapy, and income to support him until he is able to work again.  It's possible he may not be able to function in his current living space, so he will need financial help obtaining a handicapped accessible apartment and moving. 

He is scared and alone right now.  We hope everyone in the RPG community reaches out to him with love and supports this appeal. Money won't cure his diabetes or get his foot back, but it could keep him in a home and cared for during rehabilitation from the amputation. 

Please help Chuck by donating generously to this fund. 

With gratitude,

Bill and Krista Webb

We have so much gratitude to every person that has contributed to Chuck's rehabilitation fund. As most of you know, he is out of the hospital and at home in Lakeland, FL managing on crutches and a wheelchair.

He was a star in rehab and expects to be fitted for prosthesis as soon as allowable. Your contributions have helped him manage his bills and expenses during the past month when he has been unable to work and allowed us to secure him a handicap accessible apartment in Arizona. He will be moving at the end of the summer and will be near friends and FGG coworkers, a grocery store, and the VA for treatment and medical care. You contributions will allow him to work as much as he is able and have his rent paid and transportation and extra medical expenses covered.

Your generous contributions have allowed him to focus on recovery and not worry about money. Just that reduction of stress alone has done much to help in his rapid rehabilitation. THANK YOU all so much.

First, we can't express how grateful we are for the response to this plea for help. Chuck is deeply moved by the generosity of his friends and FGG fans. Thank you.

Second, update on his condition. What started as the removal of a few toes alarmingly developed into a complete amputation of his leg below the knee. This was the worst case scenario and now we must deal with it.

I just spoke to one of his nurses. He will be in the SICU for another day and then be moved to the "floor" where his stump will heal, he will be fitted for a prosthesis, and learn how to use a walker and get around. The nurse said he would be moved soon as he is strong and doing really well (good news). He will remain in the hospital for a week or two at the most (which seems way too short for all that!!). We will have a better idea of how long he will be in hospital care early next week.

If you would like to send him a card or note of encouragement the contact address is:

Charles Wright
c/o James A. Haley Veterans’ Hospital
13000 Bruce B. Downs Blvd.
Tampa, FL 33612

The whole FGG team is working to find him the resources he will need to function in both the near future and farther down the road to full recovery. We need our layout guy! And we love him and are sick with worry for him.

Again, thank you for your generosity and help. It will definitely ensure he is housed and fed and getting to his therapy appointments.

Gratefully,
Krista and Bill Webb
