Blessings in a time of need

On 05/10/2020 I received a call that no one ever wants to receive. I took a call from my best friend, Chad Pelesky, who was on his way to the hospital. He was being rushed in because his blood pressure was through the roof. Once at the hospital, he found out that his kidneys were only working at 10% of the normal rate.   If you know Chad, you know he would never ask for help. I am sure I will pay for this post later on, but right now your help is needed. Chad has a landscaping business, which means he is self employed. Without him working, money is not coming in. Chad is married with a wife Keri and his two beautiful daughters. I know that times are tough right now, but anything will help. I am certain that any donation, no matter how big or small, will go to a good cause. I’m also certain that when Chad beats this, because he is a fighter, he will definitely pay it forward as thanks for all the help he received during this tough time. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and thank you for donating if you’re able to. Matt
