This fund is for Craig Shepard. It will directly benefit him.
A few weeks ago Craig suffered a serious heart problem. After surgery and hospitalization, Craig has been released but is undergoing therapy for speech and body movement. Even though Craig is a veteran and gave his precious time to the Vietnam war his medical bills are not being paid by the Veteran’s Administration.
Earlier, hurricane Irma caused much damage to his house. The roof needs to be totally replaced among other items.
Now that his medical condition has worsened he is unable to generate income for himself.
Craig is self-employed. He has a small landscape business. During his younger years he was a building contractor. And while in the US Army he worked on helicopters in the forward areas of the Vietnam war. (See photo and caption below). Craig lives by himself. His sister, Donna, of 77 years age died a few weeks ago who used live with him. Her death is a deep shock to Craig. They were very close.
I have known Craig for about 30 years. He is a wonderful generous person.
We would like to raise some funds for him to pay for his medical and house repair expenses so that he may have some level of comfort.
Your goodwill and best wishes will go a long way. Please offer any monetary assistance you can. Kindly ask your friends to help out in this worthy cause as well.
It is said, “The donor, before giving, is glad; while giving, his/her mind is inspired; and after giving, is gratified.”
I wish you well and thank you for all that you can do.Above photo: Craig's service to our great Country. Craig received the Purple Heart Medal and the Bronze Star Medal among other recognitions.
