Chad Hale Health Care Relief fund

Just a month after his 43rd birthday, Chad Hale suffered a temporal lobe stroke. The amazing surgical team in Peoria were able to clear the blockage and after a few scares, Chad is on the road to recovery. However, as the doctor put it, recovery will be a marathon not a sprint. Chad's stroke initially left him completely paralyzed on his left side. He is slowly, very slowly regaining feeling and even use of that side. Recovery could take months or even years and the amount of use he will ultimately regain is still unknown. One day at a time. While Chad is recovering, over a month in the hospital now, medical costs and daily living costs continue to grow. ADM will be covering most of the costs but there will still be some that Chad and Heather are responsible to pay. After he returns home, and goes on disability,  is when things will probably get the hardest financially. They don't need much to make ends meet, but not having to worry about it would be a blessing and help Chad focus on getting better. This has been one of his top concerns since the day he had the stroke, making sure Heather and the girls are taken care of in the future. And while they would never ask for anyone's help, I know that Chad, being Chad, has put enough joy and love out into the world, it's only fitting that he get some back now in his time of need.
