Ron Borello's Medical Fund



Any one that knows my husband Ron will tell you that  he is a happy go lucky guy!
He is always willing to go out of his way to help others.  Unfortunately, he lives in pain every day of his life now more than ever because of his age.   My husband was born with OI; Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is a disease that causes weak bones from birth that break easily all his life. It is known as brittle bone disease or what was once called riccets. He has broken over 100 plus bones in his life.  OI  has also caused him to loose his teeth and  suffer from hearing lost.  He needs to walk with the help of canes, because there is no cushion/cartilage left in his knees, hips, shoulders, lower back, etc... they are all pretty much bone on bone.  His hips are displaced due to the deformity in his legs.
He is now permentatly disabled and is having a hard time doing the simplest of things that we all take for granted every day.  He is unable to lift his legs to get into our tub and has a hard time climbing the front steps into our home.  We would like to install a walk in tub, so he can bath without fear of falling.  And a ramp to help him get in and out of our home.   He was extremely lucky to be able to work up until eleven years ago when he got hurt at work.  He is now on permenant disability.  This has been a rough year for us.  He broke is hip last June and was on bed rest for three months.   He averages a dozen of injuries a year, doing simple things that we do every day.  We are having a hard time financially...   Any funds that we are able to raise would go towards installing the walk in tub, ramp and help pay his medical bills.  It's hard to ask for help without our pride especially his pride getting in the way.  But, we are starting to feel desperate... with the ever increasing bills across the board.  #RonTubbyTime
Thank you for any help you can give to my Husband and our Family... With Love and warmest wishes... The Borello Family
