Husband out of work due to broken rib

Hi everyone! My name is Crystal, wife to Richard. I’m here fundraising for our little family. About 2 weeks ago my husband got up on the roof to plastic our windows, he dropped the plastic. He stepped one foot on the ladder, went to put his other foot down. The ladder slipped out from underneath him. He tried catching himself on the gutter but his hand slipped. He fell onto the ladder that was on the cement. He went to the hospital by ambulance, got an X-ray and ct scan, the ct scan showed he broke a rib. He’s currently out of work until he is better. He’s been trying to get partial disability through his work but it’s taking a lot longer then expected. We are just trying to raise enough money to pay some bills. This would help our family of 5 so so much. We would be SO greatful for the help. Thank you for taking the time to read this. Have a great day!!
