Expenses During John's Recovery

So, the guy in the picture - John Vaccaro – we love him. If you know John you would understand why we care for him like we do. Many of you may know him from the Rotterdam Boys and Girls Club where he has been the Unit Director for many years. To our family he is our beloved brother-in-law and caregiver of our sister Karen and their son Ryan.
John has been fighting a very serious infection since October 23rd. After spending three weeks at Albany Medical Center, John has now been transferred to a physical rehabilitation center. We’ve been told John is likely to need several months of recovery, and will be out of work during that time. Karen suffers from Multiple Sclerosis, and John has tirelessly cared for her all these years. What we’re trying to do is help John and Karen bridge the gap between now and when John is back & better than ever. If you’re able to, please consider helping in any way you can.
