Del Teel's road to recovery fund

As Some of you may or may not know, Our Dear friend Del suffered from a stroke sometime wednesday evening 1/3/18.  He is currently in stable condition at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital.  Del Has a long road to recovery ahead of him, But anyone who's met Del knows hes a strong willed, stubborn man who refuses to go down without a fight.  With the help of modern medicine and therapys we are hoping for a smooth recovery.

Del is a family man, who always loved when his family, friends, kids and grandkids would visit. Del also loves to golf, and was looking forward to retiring in Hawaii soon and we would like to see that still happen for him! Del likes being the center of attention, he was never short on jokes and would make everyone laugh. Even if you were sad you could count on Del to put a smile on your face. Once you met Del, you never could forget him.

Del has worked as a Respiratory Therapist at French Hospital in San Luis Obispo for 23 going on 24 years. Everyone always loved to work with Del because  you knew you were going to be laughing all day. Del has saved countless of lives in his time as a Respiratory Therapist, and was always there to help anyone in need. Del was never afraid to share his experiences and knowledge that he has gained over the years in order to help teach his new Coworkers, and for this reason he will continue to save lives through the hands of his peers. Del always put his patients first. 

Del is a great man, who is loved and cared for by many. I would like to help relieve some stress on Dels family in this horrible time by raising money for medical bills and any future therapys he may need. Any amount helps. and I'm sure Del's family would appreciate all the support, 

We love you Del and hope for a speedy recovery 

Your French Family is praying and thinking about you.
