Rich Romaine's Prosthetic Leg
Rich Romaine is one of the best people I know. He is a leader, an innovator, and a great friend. Among these titles he is also the father of 2 Boys; Kyle and Zachary. Rich is one of the hardest working people I know as well. Straight out of high school he started doing carpentry and has made it his life ever since. He has worked on houses in NJ for over 25 years. Rich Romaine is also a prime example of what a hard working American Father is. In addition he also coaches Hopatcong and Mt. Olive sports in his free time. "Helping children and educating them is its own reward."
Unfortunately, 3 years ago Rich fell off of a 30ft roof while working on the job. His L5 lumbar was pressure fractured and his right heel was completely destroyed. When the x-rays were taken his heel looked like dust. After 12 surgeries to try and save his foot and 3 years of agonizing "recovery", the doctors recommended an amputation due to his limbs lack of improvement.
9.24.12 Rich would lose his right leg permanently. After 3 years of a draining recovery we are asking the public for any donations possible to help this wonderful man "get back on his feet!"
The prosthetic is $40,000.00! Needless to say after not working for 3 years, he's a little short on cash.
@ 20% cash to subsidies, he still needs $8,000.00 for a prosthetic leg. Please help give back to a man that gives everything he can to everyone else.
