Ted Heeley Recovery and Family Fund

Ted and Tina welcomed their adorable son Joshua last year and were enjoying life as a family. In mid- March this year, Ted fell ill with Encephalitis and has spent the last 4 weeks in the ICU fighting for his life. In the past week, he has opened his eyes, said good morning to the nurse and told his mother that he loved her.  He currently remains in ICU and his presence is missed by his son, Tina, family, co-workers and many friends.

Ted will likely have a long road to recovery ahead of him.  With that will come will be the need  for temporary rentals or purchases of a hospital bed (for home), wheelchair, walkers etc. The bathroom will need to be upgraded with safety rails. Transportation costs to and from medical appointments. Other additional items such as Meals on Wheels, a housekeeper and childcare costs may also be required.  This is all in addition to regular household costs that need to be maintained, now only on one income.

We ask that people please come together to alleviate any financial burden for this family so that they can concentrate on one another as Ted heals and recovers.

If you are unable to contribute at this time, kindly please send healing thoughts and prayers for Ted and his family. You may also light a candle for Ted at http://www.gratefulness.org/candles/candles.cfm?l=eng&gi=Ted

Ted is a very talented sculptor, designer and illustrator. For those that are unfamiliar with his creative works, please feel free to visit www.tedheeley.com  

We look forward to when Ted is able to return to his family, friends and to his creative pursuits.

Thank you to everyone for helping this family during this difficult time.
