Ray found out less than three weeks ago. On Friday, doctors told him the surgery would have to be on Wednesday. They also informed him that insurance would not be covering a prosthetic. The prosthetic cost $5,000.
Ray is no bum, he bought a house this past fall and works two jobs. One is the family business, a BP gas station at 12 and Novi Road in Novi. The other is as a Crossfit coach in Plymouth. Nevertheless, 5k is no small amount of change to pull from the couch.
He will live without the prosthetic but I for one would want my ball to have a buddy. Think of how lonely Tom Hanks would have been without Wilson!
With only one ball it could throw his equilibrium off. He might end up leaning to one side for the rest of his life. From his perspective the leaning Tower of Pisa will just look like the Tower of Pisa.
Reach deep down into your pockets and hopefully you’ll feel a pair (or reach into someone else’s pocket if this shouldn’t apply to you) and while you’re down there imagine Ray. Now, move your hand to the side and grab some cash and make a donation. Help a man feel like a man guys! Make a donation and pass this on. Only have two days...
