Financial Burdens

Hello Friends,

It has been a year since Rich had his stroke, and his strides towards healing have been slow and grueling for us all as a family.  We are hoping to be able to bring him home within the next several months, God willing. He continues with Physical therapy and we are praying for his strength every day.

Right now our financial situation is the most dire need as Rich has been unable to work. I have physical challenges of my own and can only work limited part-time at best. Also , once he gets home I will need to be around to help him . We need to have a ramp built from the parking lot of our townhouse complex to the front door(we have too many steps), so he can actually get IN the house via wheelchair when he does come home.  Our neighbor recently had a ramp built to her townhouse due to medical needs and we spoke to her builder . He quoted us a price of $3,000.

Rich's facility has told us to get started on planning this ramp, so we are asking for your help. Any help toward this goal is hugely appreciated. It would be a huge step in bringing Rich home. We miss him so much. Thank you and God bless you all for listening. May health bless you all and your loved ones.

Love, Connie, Rich, and Alex
