John Arthur IS the TOUGHEST man in America, but even legends like John Arthur need our help on occasion. Mr. Arthur, or lovingly known to most of us as simply Pops, is recovering from a stroke that left him without the use of the left side of his body. John is in a rehabilitation facility but is in desperate need of a proper new wheelchair that is customized to his body, and includes extra cushion in the back and seat, and a concave back for extra support. This wheelchair will be his new body, and they are not cheap.
Beyond the wheelchair, Pops has numerous needs, from a lifter to help get him in and out of his wheelchair to many modifications to his home so that it is "wheelchair friendly". The goal is to give Pops every single thing he needs to improve and return home with Shirlyn and live his life independently with the love of his life.
John, Pops, Sir, Mr. Arthur... whatever you call him, you are blessed to have him in your life. John has helped more people than any other human who has walked this earth. He is a legend! He is the kindest man with the biggest heart, all while being the toughest man ever. There is nothing John would not do for a friend. John raised a HUGE village with his discipline, love and kindness. We are all better people because of John Arthur. Now it is time for his adoring village to give back to John, he needs us! We will not let him down!
