Post Surgery Recovery Funds

Ron Shelton is one of the strongest/hardest working people the world has ever met.
However, it’s a fact of life even the strongest of the strong deal with health issues they can’t help to prevent.
Ron has been dealing with a few extreme health concerns for several years (including pending/future surgeries on his back and hands for a chronic spinal condition and progressing carpal tunnel syndrome), but right now he needs mandatory surgery on one of the largest hernias his doctor's ever seen along with a severe abscess formation, an abscess that has been crawling up his spine via his tailbone for months. The surgery is scheduled for October 12th.
Ron works odd jobs as a carpenter and does not receive short term disability through an employer to support his recovery time.
Amalia, Ron’s significant other and Mother to their three-year-old son Dash, is 27 weeks pregnant with their daughter Colette and a 24/7 mom and homemaker.
The GoFundMe amount requested is intended to support the Shelton family’s lost income during Ron’s crucial recovery time.
