Please help Calvin recover and get back to life!

Last week our beloved Calvin Orlando Smith had a very scary incident. His last recollection was painting in his kitchen and then waking up the next morning on the floor after having collapsed and remaining unconscious there throughout the night. He managed to drive himself to the ER. Tests revealed he had a dangerously low white & red blood cell count, as well as extremely low potassium, magnesium and other key minerals. The Doctor said he was very lucky to have woken up at all!

Calvin was admitted to the Hospital for four days and has been diagnosed as being anemic.  He is home now but feeling weak. He is wanting and trying to go back to work, but he clearly needs time to recover, yet being away from work for even such a short time has already placed him under financial strain, particularly with worrisome medical bills yet to come.

I know Calvin to be one of the most loving, generous, wonderful souls I have ever met, and I suspect most of his friends have a similar feeling for him. I put this campaign together because if even half of his friends contribute even $10, it will make a world of difference to Calvin, giving him some much needed financial breathing room to take the time he needs to recover and get back to work when he is healthy enough to do so.

Thank you in advance for helping our friend out, he one special person.
