Joe Rendace - road to recovery

Raised by 44 people in 1 month
Recent life events have put me in a position in which I never imagined. I have found myself forced to make the humbling decision to ask for help.

Suffering a massive stroke that left my husband currently paralyzed on one side, unable to speak and with extremely limited mobility. He’s in the hospital for the foreseeable near future. It will be many months to come that will reveal what physical and mental deficits can be conquered on his personal road to recovery.

Those that know Joe, know he is a tough cookie with a big mushy heart. Forever a fighter when there’s a little help to hold up the sheild. A true life animal whisperer, if I’ve ever saw one. Wouldn’t harm a bug if you paid him.  Always thinking of others. A musical, artistic, give the shirt off his back, one of a kind, man.

I have tried to be there to provide him with the care, both physically, emotionally and spiritually that he needs daily to remain motivated to fight and get better. I have used up all of my sick days and vacation days at my job. My employer has granted me a leave of absence without pay. Caring for him, when he most needs me, ultimately means financial havoc.
Humbly, I’m asking for your help...

I can be reached directly at Jeanine.Lombardi@me.com

Thanks kindly,
Jeanine, & Joe

I would like to take a moment to express my tremendous gratitude to everyone who has helped me through phone calls, messages and donations so I can focus on participating with Joe’s health and recovery.

I’d simply couldn’t do this without all of you...

Joe is doing well. His days are filled with different forms of physical and mental physiotherapy. Staying positive, showing motivation and determination to regain strength and movement, along with speech.

Keeping Joe on a focused path, we are asking his friends and extended family to hold off on visiting for the time being. Limiting visitors to immediate family only, while Joe is still in a fragile state, will help with the emotional recovery along with the physical. A suggestion Joe’s stroke peers and medical team have made.

If anyone would like to reach me directly, feel free 6478221970 or jeanine.lombardi@me.com.
