Hi my name is Ruthie and I’m Tony Norris‘s fourth child. Tony Norris is local to Flagstaff Arizona for forty years, is a father to 5, musician, cowboy poet, spinner of tales, and overall blessing to his community. Check out his website at https://tonynorris.com/
Over the years, he co-founded Flagstaff Friends of Traditional Music, performed educational programs in local schools and all over the country, was a featured author in Flag Live, and has an ongoing radio show called Under Western Skies that airs on Sun Sounds- service to the blind.
Tony has spent the last six months between hospital, rehab, and care centers. His Myasthenia Gravis continues to provide him with challenges, but the risk of infections and neglect at care centers is currently exceeding the risks of the disease. His current goal has changed as his release and living in Doney has been reached! Now it is to be able to stay in his home to Doney Park and be able to spend his days in his home under the Pines. To do this he does need some assistance for things not provided by Medicare or long-term care.
Tony is home as of late September and his biggest need is be to pay for some extra in home care and medical equipment that is not provided by Medicare. Equipment needs include:
- [ ] Bidet
- [ ] Bedside commode
- [x] Walker
- [ ] completion of outside ramp
- [ ] 2 wheel car trailer for wheelchair $600
- [x] Electric recliner chair -$1,000
- [ ] iPad stand to use with iPad in protectivecase
- [x] Bedside table (like at hospital)
- [x] Mini fridge for sunroom (medication and snacks)
- [ ] $300-400 per week for evening caregiving hours
- [ ] sock helper putter on’er
