His name is Richard Blakeman, he is a loving son, husband and father to 3 sons. He worked his whole life for the same company as an electrician, until one day an accident on the job happened. A 20 foot light pole in a parking lot collapsed and landed on his head. It crushed his neck, breaking several vertabrae. An operation was performed and he had a metal plate installed in his head and half of his cervical spine had to be fused together, rendering him unable to perform normal daily tasks that most of us taken for granted on a daily basis like turning your head to the left to check for traffic while driving. The company that he had given 3 decades of service to, discarded him without a second look. It was then up to his wife (my mother) to continue working to pay bills, until she was laid off. These are two of the most understanding, loving, generous people in the world. And they need your help!
Every little bit will help, and would be appreciated more than words could describe. Thank you in advance for your donations, and for helping me keep my dad alive..
