Rehab for a great man

Colby has been struggling with alcohol addiction since his younger brother passed away 2009. This has gotten better and worse over the years, but has been progressively worsened over the past several month. He is ready to go to rehab and stay for 90-120 days and then longer if needed, but he has no resources to pay for this and his family is dealing with medical problems with other members of his family right now. 

So we are starting a go-fund-me page to see if there is anyone that knows Colby and is willing to help out.

He is one of the best friends I have ever had, known him since I was in the 5th grade and I can say without hesitation that he is a good man. 

I am willing to help him as is his mother, but I'm afraid that this is something that will require more than either of us are able to do on our own, so we are looking to the community to help him. 

Anyone that knows Colby loves him, he is easy to care about and is always willing to help even strangers. He has just fallen victim to a disease that some people know well and others have no clue about. 

But he is ready to be done with it forever and I am setting this up because I believe it will take more resources than we have available to give him and I want him to have the best chance in the world at getting better and living the best life he can possibly live.

I know that if he can get sober and stay that way, he will have a positive impact on the lives of countless people and I believe that anything you all choose to donate to Colby will be paid back to you 3-4x over because you will have enabled him to help other people with his life. And I know, without a doubt, than in his heart that is what he wants to do with his life. He just doesn't have the capability to do it right now and hasn't in several years.
