Help our friend Scott Celani

Friends of Scott and Debbie Celani,

It is with a heavy heart that we share some disturbing news with you that our "VERY SPECIAL" friend Scott Celani continues to struggle with a myriad of health issues which includes Parkinson's disease,; Dementia; and severe Rheumatoid Arthritis.  In addition, he has also undergone By-Pass Heart Surgery which has been complicated by a Deep Vain Thrombosis.

His loving wife Debbie has remained steadfast by Scott's side through this challenging ordeal.  Debbie has stated that Scott is receiving the best care possible within their means and is currently in a private group home where he is given a specialized medical protocol. However, due to the exorbitant cost of the health facility which he now resides, Debbie has decided to bring him home.  As we all know, the cost associated with his ongoing care, even in a home setting, still goes on.  Changes in the household will have to be made to accommodate his specific needs along with the continued purchase of various kinds of medicine and other health products.

Sadly, although Scott served his country with distinction in the Navy for 4 years during the Viet Nam War, as well as being a member of the Chicago Police Department for 33 years, he gets relatively little help from the VA and other agencies.  As a result, there have been a multitude of friends who have inquired as to how they can help Scott and Debbie in their time of great need..  It is with this outpouring of concern that we have decided to set up a fund raising endeavor where friends can make a monetary contribution if they so chose.

All Donations will go directly to Scott and Debbie!

Thanking you in advance for your continued thoughts and prayers!
