Help for Big “C”, Craig Cantwell

Craig is my older brother, many people know him as Big “C”.  Some of you heard his story from Facebook.  If not I am copying it here with some paraphrasing.

So like us All, 2020 has just been shitty. My 2019 ended amazing, Moved full time to St. George, Fixed up condo, Golfing, Worked at an Amazing Golf Course, Found another Awesome Call Center Job, Apello, You Rock!!! Then 2020 Came, Got hacked thru bank, credit cards, payments sent, internet, computer, you name it, they took it. April, March came, Lost my awesome Job at Golf Course because Covid hit, All hell hit, etc etc... Then lost another side job I was working on, Apello - The Call Center held strong, Thank God, got moved to Quarantine like all, working at home, ordering door dash, living like hermits, no outside fun, visit, parties. My health started. Going down, attitude, we started loosing people, family stayed home, we all stayed in & doing same. I was also able to keep golfing but even that world changed.

Fast Forward.

In October, as usual, like clockwork, I started my year end cough and Congestion, Tiredness, quit taking care of myself cause ya just didn’t feel well. Well, skipping ahead, Last days of 2020, Notice my right foot, pinky toe was dying, black and blue, puss and oozing, I still had Heavy deep cough, chest congestion, head ache from all that, Had a very close friend drive me to Urgent care and Worse news of coarse dropped on Last day of 2020.

Sugar Diabetes hit hard, Sore on foot from weeks ago had gotten infected and I couldn’t notice was between toes and pad of foot, so who checks that or us fatties can’t see that. Ends up cough is Pneumonia in both longs and I tested positive for Covid, Of coarse all three worse things @ end of WORSE Year Ever..

I am now at Dixie Regional Medical, Which has been AMAZING, Thank You. 3rd Day now, Being treated for all that, I am on the mend, They did take my 5th digit, Mr. Pinky toe, lots of bone, and lots of bottom of foot that had died. Getting treated for Covid, Getting treated for Pneumonia, and Entering Wound Care Treatment...

I’m gonna win, gonna beat this.

Very scared for me, but scared for ALL, All that are taking the precautions, scared for all those that aren’t taking precautions, & All that have done everything they can & have also been affected. I’m Sorry.

Goodbye / Good riddens 2020, Hear is To 2021, May God Bless us, Bless Ourselves, Bless Each Other.

Love You All, Prayers to You All... Will take All the Prayers you can send for me. Let’s Make 2021 Right. Love You All


Craig has now been in the hospital for 5 days, most things are improving but he’s not out of the woods yet.  He will spend time getting over his sicknesses and especially rehab on his foot.  Even when he leaves he will require medical attention until everything heals.

If you can spare anything I know he would be forever grateful.  If not we understand.  There are a lot of unknowns right now.  Full disclosure he does have medical insurance but he is unclear of what and
how much is covered at this time.  

We love him and wish him a full and speedy recovery.
