Help Sal Lizard Aka Santa Aka The Vampire Santa

Donation protected
Hi, My name is Derek Young. I am making this go fund me to help a dear friend of mine Sal Lizard. Most people either know him as Santa or The Vampire Santa. Sal suffered from several strokes and lost all forms of income he had. He lost being able to act, go to conventions, and even being able to be Santa every year. He never asked anyone for help during all of that he had his family and wife so he didn't want to ask for anybody else's help. He battled back to being in a good place. Recently he lost his wife Linda and was devastated. Not only had he lost the person who cared for him daily but his Mrs. Clause you might say. He also during this hard economic time had just been hit with another loss of income as she was the only one working in the house. She was an amazing children's nurse at the hospital. His daughter and granddaughter (pictured) moved in with him to help care for him as he needs someone looking after him since his strokes as he still has significant restraints of use of his left side arm and leg. Well since his wife's passing he has been in the hospital 3 times. This most recent time he is showing signs of kidney failure on dialysis, and having major trouble breathing. He is still fighting because it is him who takes his granddaughter on his hover round to her gymnastics, tennis, and ballet classes. Sal would never ask for anyone's help its just who he is. Since I'm in no place myself to help as much as I like I felt this was the best course of action. So I am coming to you on his behalf. Sal has been A real Bearded Santa to kids all over the country for 35 years. He has always had a huge heart and been very giving. I say its time he gets the help he needs. He is real tight on funds and with mounting bills I want to help him get some breathing room so he and his daughter and granddaughter can keep a roof over their head and be able to enjoy Christmas this year. Last year they had just lost Mrs. Clause and Christmas was really gloom. He deserves a good Christmas with no worries this year. So please help make Christmas for Santa. Thank You for taking the time to read this and Merry Christmas. I will be making sure all funds raised go directly to Sal the minute they clear and will update you all on how his health is. Thank You again for helping one of my best friends in the world.
