He never walked again. He is 100% dependent on others taking care of him. However, Ralph's determination to live with this severe handicap and continue his life on a daily basis was and still is remarkable! Ralph pursued his education, got his degree and became a counselor and a basketball coach for over 25 years at North Bergen High School in Hudson County, NJ. After retirement he began to do motivational speaking at local schools for very little money. Sometimes just for transportation.
At this stage in his life he is basically running out of money to pay around the clock home care. It can cost approximately $75,000 a year.
I am starting this fundraiser with the goal of raising $50,000 which would help somewhat but would not be nearly enough. But we have to start some place. Please give what ever you can to :
