Medical Fund

As many know, Rick fell off of a ladder almost 20 feet and has multiple serious injuries. They do have insurance but because of the limitations of Medicare and their age, they are not covered 100%. We are unsure how much will be covered but can imagine that the bill will not be cheap. My parents are on a fixed income. Although they appear to be well off, they live month to month. Their income covers their basic needs, however, this is something you just cannot prepare for.

We are going to offer some of his works at great prices to help cover some of the expenses, but selling art is very seasonal for us with the Academy being our main contract. I want to make sure they don't have to worry about anything and was told about gofundme and that it is a good way to raise money for those in need. I can guarantee that anything we raise will go directly to pay for his medical needs. Mostly, I appreciate any help we can get during this difficult time. He will probably not be able to paint for some time which is how he makes his living. Insurance won't cover this loss because it happened in the home and does not cover those that live there. Thank you in advance for helping. Hopefully, it won't be terrible but I can only imagine what it will cost in the end and would hate for them to lose more...
