Eddie Wolecki-Black-Stroke Treatment

£5,405 of £10,000 goal

Raised by 139 people in 26 months
Eddie Wolecki Black suffered a massive stroke on match day 5th March 2016. With his wife, Emma, due to give birth to their first child, the future looked very bleak. As head coach of Airdrie United, Eddie was on the path to fulfilling his ambition of reaching the top of the game as a football manager. One of Scotlands' brightest emerging managers one minute, fighting for his life the next. Eddie, 15 months on, is working hard in his rehabilitation but recovery is slow. He is determined to live a long and fulfilling life with his young family. He also continues to pursue his career path to coach and manage at the elite level. There is a treatment in the US that has had profound effects on stroke victims recovery. It is an anti inflammatory drug called ETANERCEPT that is injected into the spinal fluid whilst hanging upside down. Political analyst Andrew Marr has been a recipient of the treatment and has noted subtle changes and improvements if not as profound as others. The treatment, travel and accommodation are of course expensive and will cost an estimated £10,000. We are asking those of you who know
Eddie and would like to see him receive this treatment to make a donation to help him on his road to recovery. This treatment could be life changing.

Dear all,
for those of you that don't know who I am. My name is Paul Tramontanas and I live in Auchterarder, Scotland. I have been a good personal friend of Eddies for the past 10 years. I set this campaign up to help a friend who is trying to recover his health after suffering a severe stroke. The donations that are received will be used by Eddie to get revolutionary treatment for stroke patients only administered in the US. The treatment involves an anti inflammatory drug called ETANERCEPT being injected into the spinal fluid whilst hanging upside down.
All donations received are deposited into a bank account that belongs to Eddie & Emma. They are the only ones able to access this account.
