Unexpected Leg Amputation.Now What?

Im raising money for Robert Brochard. At 51, he has worked as a Casual Longshoreman for 14 years , waiting to get a full time"B Book" position.  This  means he has no benefits and no ILWU Union to help him  with paying his medical bills, his medications, his physical therapy who will teach him how to do everyday  things with one leg,  He has his  utility bills, property taxes, food, and other living expenses that he has no money for. He is hoping that when he gets a prosthetic, he can go back to the docks and work. . This happened so unexpectedly. He went to the E.R for a twisted ankle and came out of the hospital 1 month and 2 weeks later without his leg.It turns out that Robert is a diabetic and when he twisted his ankle , he cut it a little and due to being diabetic, that cut instantly got Infected.The Dr said that Robert could have died   had he not gone to the E.R.. Robert is the type of man that always has a smile on his face and is always there to help someone in need out and he always brings a smile to all the faces around him.   Robert has been so positive through all of this, even through the pain and he deserves to have good things come his way.  Any donation will help, there is no donation to small. $5 or $10 ,it is all so very appreciated and important..
