To complete his recovery Chuck needs a prosthetic leg. His insurance will cover some of the new leg, but not all of it. He also needs help making some modifications to his home to allow him to live independently which includes taking care of his dog, Cutty. Chuck's road to recovery has been long and everything is different for him now. Chuck is trying to get back to work, but his recovery has met a few setbacks which have required additional hospitalizations. He still has multiple doctors' appointments each week and his left foot is still healing. He will lose part of the toes on that foot due to the high doses of blood pressure medicine given to him to save his life.
Anything you can do to help Chuck adjust to his new life would be greatly appreciated. We want to help him get this new "Bionic" leg, build him railings and a fenced in area for his dog so he can safely let his dog in and out, and help him make alterations to his living area to accomodate his wheelchair and crutches. I have never seen anything like this before. Septic shock is an unrelenting illness. What Chuck has been through was remarkably difficult, but what has left a lasting impression on me is his will to live. I truly believe he is still here for a reason. Thank you for helping him!
He is Chuck Tuff!!
