Support for Fred White

Many of you know Fred White or know someone he has helped. Fred has been a Marriage and Family counselor and a Methodist minister for 40+ years. He is loved by his family beyond words. The number of lives this man has touched and changed for the better is unbelievable. On New Years Eve Fred's legacy almost ended. He suffered a ruptured thoracic aortic aneurysm and aortic dissection all they way to the groin. He was flown to Indianapolis for emergency open heart surgery. After surgery he was told the blood flow was cut off to his spinal cord and the nerves died.  They tell him he will not walk again.  Fred has defied the odds and amazed his doctors and continues to fight. He is currently at the Shirley Ryan Abilitylab in Chicago. Please help support the family with the cost of travel, hotels, food and parking. (Parking alone in Chicago is not cheap.) We are also hoping to extend his care past what Medicare will cover.  Anything you can donate is greatly appreciated. God is not done using this wonderful man!
