Detective Edward French's Recovery

Detective Edward French is a dedicated 15 year veteran of the NYPD and is currently assigned to Bronx Narcotics.  After years of dedication in law-enforcement he suffered a massive stroke on February 25, 2018 while at home in Long Island. Det. French battled his symptoms but ultimately needed a Hemicraniectomy procedure.  At this time he  doesn’t have mobility of the left side of his body and his speech has been greatly affected . He has started the long road to recovery together with his wife Annette French. This road will take several months to travel  and require extensive Physical & Occupational therapy. As we all know this can also be emotionally strenuous on a Family. His wife Annette has been by his side every day since the Stroke and has been his rock during this trying event.

Both he and Annette are incurring many uncovered medical expenses. Ambulance transports are not being covered because he wasn't hooked up to oxygen when transferred.  Thus far he has been to Stony Brook Medical Center, Good Samaritan Hospital and is currently at St. Charles Rehabilitation in Melville, NY. Ambulatory transport to and from therapy once he is released will also be an additional expense.

 Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
