Chad Osborne~Young Stroke Victim

So another long battle is ahead for our brother, Chad Osborne, who suffered an Ischemic stroke on April 3rd, 2018.  Eight years ago almost to this day he quit his addictions and climbed up from nothing and I repeat, nothing. Someday if you ask, he’ll tell his story to you proudly and without the current slur that he has from this stroke.  Because he’ll beat this too with lots of PT, OT, and speech therapy.  Chad found a great job with Mark Woodman Plumbing and goes above and beyond what is expected of him, because he “gets” the commitment to succeed. He also waited so long to find love, but when he did he fell hard for our soon-to-be new family member, Crista Plummer(Thanks for setting them up Tina!).  Chad just recently made a dream come true by purchasing his first home in Potterville and I can’t begin to tell you how proud I am that he fought his way from nothing to buying a nice home to start the next chapter of his life with his new wife-to-be, Crista.  The greatest thing about Chad is his willingness to help others now that he’s in a position to do so. He rarely says no to someone in a plumbing bind (like myself with four kids who put mysterious things down the toilet), but especially family and friends because he feels he needs to make amends. Well I’m asking everyone and anyone who knows him to rally behind him. Be it with prayers or letting Crista’s dogs out or driving him to physical therapy or sending a card, making a meal or a monetary donation so he can keep all his dreams going.  Chad WILL overcome this stroke and be back to his goofy self in no time but it’s going to be a long, tough, back breaking battle and he’ll do it knowing his family and friends are behind him.
