Ralph's Medical Fundraiser

I am creating this go fund me account for my brother Ralph.  Over the last several months Ralph has been in and out of the hospital.  September of last year his right foot got a callus.  It formed a scab and all seemed well until he went in for a foot massage and the rollers started squeezing his foot causing the scab to rupture and therefore creating a diabetic foot ulcer.  

Due to his job requiring him to be on his feet for over 8 hours the ulcer was not healing and it has caused his foot to abcess and rupture.  Ralph has had two surgeries and his foot is still not getting any better.   It turns out he has a staff infection and will be  needing  IV Antibiotic treatments for 9-12 weeks 4-5 times per day.   During this time Ralph has not been able to work and has lost his job and also his insurance .  

You can only imagine what Ralph is going through and the anxiety he is feeling not having the funds to get the treatment he needs and also help with the surmounting debt to cover not only his medical expenses but also his living expenses (Rent, Car payment, Phone Bill, Insurance, Etc.).  Ralph is a good friend to many and through the years has given  so much to so many people.   Now it is our turn to give back. Anything helps even the smallest amount. Thank you.
