Big Ed's Medical Bills & Lost Wages

Ed Welch is my cousin, he is a well known local resident. He comes from the Middletown Beach Area. He works at various local shops and clubs. He is always trying to help someone out and can almost always be found with his infectious smile. Last week he started to experience severe discomfort in his abdomen area and like most people would have he passed it off as a stomach bug. Early Saturday Am he went to the Newport Hospitals ER. He was diagnosed with a very bad infection with an abcess in his Abdomen. He had a procedure to try to drain the infection however the Dr. is suggesting it may not work and more surgery could be needed but at this point he is out of work for 4-5 months and requires Visiting Nurse Services as well upon his release. Edward is uninsured and very stressed out by Medical Bills and lost wages although he can receive TDI its not full wages and medical bills can and will set him in  a terrible Financial Struggle. Lets show him how we all love and care for him and all pitch in and help defray the pricey medical bills and to help with his cost of living. All funds will be deposited directly into the account of Ed & his Mother Marion Welch . Love & Peace.
