Ed Roche Recovery Fund

$70,737 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 509 people in 4 months
Created June 27, 2018
Hello All,

On June 26th, a good friend and neighbor of ours, Ed Roche, was in an accident involving a fire. He was badly burned and medevaced to St. Barnabas Burn Center for treatment.

As many of you may know, Ed is self-employed and runs his own business (Creative Craftsman). He may have even done work for some of you. Due to the severity of his burns his recovery will be a slow and challenging one. As a result he will be unable to work until he is fully recovered. The stress and challenge to him and his family during this time of recovery can be lightened if we can help with the financial burdens that will come along with this unforeseen accident.

Ed is a loving father and amazing friend. He has made many sacrifices, and has donated his talents, time and energy to many people in his community.  

In his moment of need, a donation of any amount will be greatly appreciated in helping our friend and neighbor


Thank you in advance for your love and support.

To All Donors from Ed Roche

First and foremost, words will never express my deepest and sincerest gratitude, but I want to thank everyone for the love , prayers, thoughts and most of all your kindness in giving. I am very happy to be home and able to be out and about. My road to recovery will still be a long one, but the doctors continue to tell me my wounds are healing as they should be. I am better, stronger, and today is always better than yesterday. Thank you all again and again for having my back when I needed it.

Thanks!!!!
Ed

I wanted to let all donors know that Ed's son Brad has been a major help in helping handle both business and personal items while Ed is focusing on recovery. Brad has taken the necessary steps to begin withdraws of the donations and will be working with Ed to sort through all the medical items that need to be handled. We asked Brad to be the beneficiary, in case Ed is in need of additional surgeries etc.
I ,again, would like to thank everyone for their generous and thoughtful donations.

Good News...Ed is doing very well. He had a few skin graph surgeries that were necessary but he is recovering nicely. He was able to finally come home which I am sure will help him in his recovery. He is very touched by everyone's help and generosity, so thank you all for your support!

From Tori Roche:
On behalf of me and my family we cannot thank everyone enough for the overwhelming love and support since the accident.
It's so amazing to see how many people care for my dad and wish the best for him. My dad has been pushing through a lot of pain and discomfort, but as days pass he is getting better and better. He is able to sleep pretty well and the doctors have been having him slowly start to walk. He has mostly 3rd degree burns on his left arm and torso and 2nd degree burns on the side of his face and a few other spots. Doctors are still speculating on how much surgery or if any surgery will be needed. He is still in the ICU and will be there for an estimated 3-4 weeks. When we go to visit he cracks jokes and is overall making the situation more positive. Seeing him smile and joke around is the best feeling in the the world, knowing that after such a terrible accident he stays strong through it no matter what.
