Frank Bardugone Post Stroke Fund

Thanks for taking the time to read this! My dad Frank Bardugone suffered a major stroke on April 28th which disabled the motor functions on the left side of his body from head to toe. After two weeks in the hospital, three more in a physical therapy facility and against our wishes the doctors sent him home. He is still unable to stand or walk, and must continue to be under constant care. His wife Theresa has now become his full time care taker and they have no source of income other than his medicare.

His medical expenses are mounting every day, yet he still requires months of physical therapy if there is to be any hope of recovery. For those of you that know him you know he is a family first, very loving and charasmatic guy. When my dad was at his best he was always the first to makes sure his family and friends are taken care of, so now it's mine turn (hopefully with your help) to take care of him.

He currently needs major care and rehab and they have no means of getting him to where he needs to go . He is wheel chair bound, paralyzed and needs a lift to get in and out of a car.  They need a special vehicle that will allow him to be safely transported to therapies and doctors visits. I ask that you join us in helping Frank gather the funds necessary to obtain this Van that will cost around 10k ... so that he can have access the services he needs to recover from this debilitating, life changing, frightening experience, and return to being the full of life, loving, caring, giving person he always has been. I believe we can reach our goal.  I ask that you please share with all friends and family and I believe we can reach our goal. Thank you!
