Helping Richie in time of need

Recently Richie had been hospitalized due to an infection called Shigella. In a rare (fewer than 20,000 people) occurrence one side effect of Shigella is reactive arthritis, which is an autoimmune disorder. Currently Richie is unable to utilize all his joints as we do on regular basis, he will need occupational therapy to relearn everyday skills like eating, showering, bending and walking. While battling continuous inflammation, joint pain, stiffness & acute kidney failure, it will be difficult recovery! The goal is $7000 to help cover medical & home expenses while he is unable to work, any donation is greatly appreciated, no gesture is too small.
