Richard Connema recovery funds

Jan 15th 2018 - UPDATE

RICHARD is now at the Kaiser Vallejo Stroke Wing 3rd Floor - Recovering from his second stroke. 

Message from Richard 1.15.18 "Richard wishes all of you well who have supported him during his weeks of recovery - He says he hopes to be in the isles soon and Thanks with love and standing O's to all who have supported him" (in tears) 

Thank you to all who have donated to 92 year old Richard Connema a SF Bay Area Icon of Theatre Arts and ciritic reviews - Richard suffered a humbug Holiday on the floor of his bed room for three days until help got to him. Hungry and no water he survived Christmas 2017 after friends found him - and he was taken to Hospital. 

As of Jan 6th Richard has been located to Vallajo Kaiser P. their award winning Stroke recovery program.  His current recovery is slow but he is improving every day and he hopes to transefer back to a SF location soon.

If Richard returned to home he will need a life Life Alert Life Alert ® is a medical alert system specifically designed to protect seniors and all family members in a home health emergency.

Any funds now collected are going to both his recovery effort and to pay his mounting Medial Bills.  Money has aready be used to pay for emergency car and rental needs. We all hope he soon returns to his Marina home.

Based on his limited retirement and all his new health needs - we are asking for a 5.00 to 10.00 donation so we can set up this service for him. Also provide some other needs he requires during his recovery weeks.

I am hoping some of you that follow me can donate -- to RICHARDS GoFundMe. I am only asking for 1.00 , 5.00 or 10.00 donations - but of course more is always welcome.  We have rasied beyond our 2000 goal but still need funds for his new costs.  Thank you all 

I would return your kindness by a huge thank you and card from me and his other close friends.
