Charlie Frattini NEEDS your help!

Donation protected
One of the most memorably altruistic personalities is now facing an extensive and unexpected journey of his own after suffering a "massive" inoperable stroke.

Beginning on December 17th, 2021 Charlie began his journey with breakthrough COVID induced atrial fibrillation and pericardial effusion. In and out of the hospital for almost three exhaustingly distressful weeks, he finally began to show improvement the weekend of January 8th, 2022.

On the morning of January 11th, 2022 Charlie collapsed at work.

Charlie suffered a massive stroke, causing extensive irreversible brain damage and left-side paralysis.

Confined to the Neurological ICU and continuing to a long-term in-patient facility, Charlie and his family will face unmeasurable challenges financially, emotionally and physically in the coming months and years.

Their current home is a historic renovation project that Charlie and his wife have tirelessly worked to self-fund and is ADA adaptable but is mostly incomplete. Additionally, medical expenses will continue to pile up for Charlie's current care and potential for long-term care.

Developing from the roots of the Marine Corps, Charlie Frattini spent his life-changing the lives of others through his career in high-rise and residential home construction. Working additionally in television, Charlie selflessly renovated homes for Veterans, disadvantaged homeowners, and victimized business owners. Charlie's greatest joy is changing the lives of others, even if it meant additional work or extra hours.

We are asking for help to get Charlie and his family to a safe, accessible home for his new abilities and for help on his evolving lifelong medical journey. While we cannot predict what life has in store for Charlie as his journey continues, we can ensure his safety, comfort and best care.
