Derek's Stroke Recovery

My good friend Derek recently had open heart surgery, during the procedure a blood clot formed in his brain causing a stroke. He has lost movement in left side of body but doctors are confident he will bounce back. Derek also has a child on the way with his loving girlfriend Lora. Please support my friend with whatever you can, he's one of the toughest and hard working guys I know but has a lengthy recovery ahead. Donations will help support Derek with living expenses while he learns to walk again so he can get back to work to support his new family.
