Mac Nelson's Immediate expenses

Alfred “Mac” Nelson is many things.  A brilliant actor, devoted teacher, published author, Cancer survivor, and simply the best storyteller I’ve even known.  If you know Mac, then you’ll agree these professional accomplishments and personal attributes barely scratch the surface.    Mac is a beautiful human being whose touched countless lives. 
 
Throughout life Mac has constantly found himself in unbelievable situations. Unfortunately, the most recent “against all odds” situation is no laughing matter.  Mac went in for a routine knee replacement surgery in late August.  The operation was a success with no immediate complications.  Then 7 days post-op he contracted a staph infection and was immediately put on medication to treat the staff.  As if this weren’t enough, days after starting the antibiotic his Achilles tendon ruptured; An extremely rare side effect of the staph medication treating his staph infection. 
 
Now Mac is facing 6 months of physical therapy and will simultaneously be rehabbing his knee and Achilles.  As you can imagine the bills are mounting up. We’ve set the goal of this campaign to an amount we believe will take care of Mac’s normal living expenses during this time.  We’ll tackle the hospital bills down the road.  The purpose of this campaign is to give Mac some peace of mind while he is going through rehab.  We believe this is paramount in him making a full recovery.
 
Crowdfunding is a wonderful platform continuously helping people come back from otherwise insurmountable odds. Even though Mac’s current health condition is dire, we fully believe he can make a full recovery.  But we do need a little financial support humbly ask anyone who feels it in their heart to donate…  No amount is too small.
 
Thank you and God Bless!
