Get Tuck home from California

Back in March, Tom, his wife Rita, my parents, Joe and Lorraine planned a trip to California in August. Their main objective was for all of them to go to The Price is Right for three tapings and sightseeing. Tom was fine leaving on Friday August 3rd and the weekend 4th & 5th.  They attended a Dodgers game on Saturday.  

During this vacation Tom had a set back with his medical issues that sent him to the hospital out in California. They were supposed to return home Friday August 10, he and Rita are still out there. Medical staff are unsure of when he will be discharged. They are incurring additional transportation costs; cancellation of two flights already, Uber to and from hotel and hospital, food, and currently extending Rita's stay at the hotel for an additional week. Also, unsure of medical costs that may not be covered through insurance. Tom may need specialized transportation from California to Philly, if he is unable to fly home on a commercial airline. 

We cannot put an estimated cost on any money Tom and Rita may have to put out of pocket for medical and air transportation. Hotel is approximately going to be an additional $1,600 for the extra week, it may be longer.  

Any donation will be greatly appreciated that can help with the medical costs they will have and to help get them both home. 

My parents and I hope that donations can be sent by the end of August and through September.
