Our friend Brendan Martin, a union carpenter, is in need of assistance. He recently developed a heart condition and lung problems (possibly COPD). At the moment he is out of work due to his inability to physically walk around. He was laid off a few weeks ago and was hospitalized shortly after. He has more testing and medicine that he needs to take but they cost money that he doesn't have coming in. Anybody who knows Brendan knows he would give you the shirt off his back. Right now he can't even tie his shoe without losing his breath, I am asking all of his friends to help get the word out and do whatever they can to help a friend in need. Brendan's family will handle the funds and how they are doled out for various expenses. Let's help Brendan on the road to recovery.
