All Wheel Drive for Butch

You may know our brother Butch(Carlisle) Wilson as a friend, a neighbor, or an all around go-to guy. You may have seen him rolling in his wheelchair through the Galleria in Fort  Lauderdale  where he lives,  wheeling onto the bus to shop, to go to work or appointments. You may even have seen him rolling at the beach.  He has always been out there; coaching baseball, helping friends and strangers alike, working for good causes like the ADA, The Miami Project and others.

This last summer was a very difficult time for Butch. He had neurosurgery to help with chronic pain and mobility.  He was in and out of the ICU.  After a period of time in rehab he was finally able to go home.  But...there is a long road before he is himself.  

Throughout his life Butch has been almost totally independent;  living, dressing, eating, driving,  shopping, working.
This year Butch needs a hand to get through this coming year of healing.  Neither Medicare nor Insurance will provide a good and proper hospital bed or more than a few hours of help during the day.  He has a physical therapist and an occupational therapist 3 days per week.  A voice activated "home Hub" like "Alexa" or "Google Home" would help give Butch some independence because he is not presently able to use the phone or his computer.  

Would you consider contributing the cost of a "date night" or a ball game to help get Butch rolling again?
Whatever you can give, no matter the amount, each little bit will be appreciated.

Let's pay back some of Butch's great heart while he works through this latest challenge.
