Eddie's road to recovery

So to those who don't know my best friend Eddie slipped on black ice on the evening of February 8, 2018. The fall caused an area of his brain to bleed. He received an emergency surgery that was able to decrease the bleeding and swelling of his brain; however he continues to need 24/7 around the clock medical care. Eddie is surrounded by a highly qualified team of doctors, specialists, and nurses who have all taken a liking to him (no surprise there). 

He's been in the hospital for a little over a month now and while his recovery is progressing it's been a very slow and long process. Aside from the medical situations he and Noel (his wife) are dealing with, the bills are starting to pile up and the savings account is starting to drain.

Eddie's been my best friend since 4th grade and for over 20 years has always been there for me in the good and bad. He's like that with everyone he meets, whether he's known you for ten minutes or ten years he's the type of guy who will drop whatever he's doing to be there for you. 

Any amount you can donate will be greatly appreciated, no amount is too little. Thank you in advance for your generosity and even if you can't donate, you can share this to as many people as possible. Together we can help and make some of the burdens of this situation just a bit easier. 

Much love,
