David Riner's Medical Fund

Hi my name is Marco Molloy. David and I have been partnered for almost 30 years. In fact our 30th anniversary is coming up this month on October 31st. Yes, LOL...we met on Halloween and have been together ever since. We’ve lived together in Delray for 25yrs. I work at Olde Towne School for Dogs in Alexandria, as did David until two years ago when he went out on his own. Having trained dogs in the community for more than two decades, he became well known for his love of dogs and his excellent training abilities.
    David recently sustained a severe brain injury, which initially left him paralyzed on the left side of his body, and unable to speak. He is slowly improving, but he has a long road ahead of him. In the past he has battled through a kidney transplant, and most recently cancer. Being that he is self employed, makes this time even more difficult because he will be unable to work, or handle his own affairs for the unforseeable future. Your contribution will go a long way with helping to cover the cost of the many months of physical, occupational, and speech therapy that he will require. I will make sure your generous contributions will be used in the best way possible, in order to make David’s life through this difficult time go as easily as possible.
    On a lighter note, David has made many improvements just in the last couple of weeks. His mobility on the left side has improved. He’s able to walk now although his left arm is still a little numb. His speech has greatly improved but he does miss some words, and he can spell my name with scrabble pieces!

Thanks again to everyone...our friends,neighbors and all of you that have reached out to help us, you're amazing!        Love, Marco and David
