Getting Joe Balter Home

My friend Joe Balter had a major stroke on 9/22/18 followed by surgery on 9/ 24 to reduce swelling on his brain.  The outlook for full recovery is doubtful. However, he should regain some mobility.  The medical bills for treatment and recovery will be extremely burdensome for the family (we will address a fund raiser for that later).

We are raising money for modifications to the family  home, specifically the bathroom, bedroom and entrance. Currently the master bath has a tub and we would like to install a zero entry shower with support rails toilet,bench and other necessities.  We would like to complete this project by December in anticipation of his return home.

The project will involve redesign, demolition, and reconstruction of the bathroom and a ramp at the entrance if necessary.
