Please help support Ralph Galdieri

After months of chronic back pain, Ralph Galdieri's back pain started to affect his ability to walk. Thanksgiving week he underwent emergency surgery to his back; it was discovered that he had a fractured vertebrae compressing his spinal cord. He was near to the point of becoming paralyzed had it not been caught at that time. The aftermath of the surgery was nearly 2 months of rehabilitation to relearn how to walk. This obviously came as a shock to the family and put them in a tight place financially.

Since the surgery, major renovations have been made to their home to make it handicap accessible; as Ralph has a long road of rehabilitating ahead of him and is not able to work at this time. The funds raised will be used to offset costs of the renovations and current and future medical bills.
