Fix Ant's Foot!

On Christmas Eve morning while in Seattle to visit his family our dear friend Anthony (Ant) Ostrea broke his ankle in three places. Surgery was recommended after seeing a specialist but like many service industry workers Anthony is uninsured. The doctor put a cast on his ankle and said "You will regret not having surgery for the rest of your life."

Not only is Ant unable to afford the proper care, he is also unable to earn any money as his source of income requires being on his feet to tend bar. Any help would be greatly appreciated and if we can reach our goal Ant will be able to get the surgery and have proper time and treatment to fully recover. 

The situation is extremely urgent as Ant has no income currently, and every day without surgery the bones fuse together in an imperfect way. Small amounts can add up quick so please help us in any way you can. 

Thank you.
