Help Todd Schnaible walk again!

One day, a strong man was full of laughter, courage and strength....the next day, that strength turned into fear, and worry...within a few days he was in the hospital, fighting Necrotizing Fasciitis, A Flesh-eating disease caused by bacteria entering the body through a break in the skin. Following about an 8 week long stay in ICU with more than 7 surgeries and several procedures, the final surgery revealed that the flesh eating bacteria won the battle on his leg, but HE WON THE WAR on his LIFE! Todd's right leg was amputated just above the knee, however with his strong will, courage and perseverance Todd will walk again! Todd worked very hard in rehab during his hospital stay. He was determined to fight! His courage and strength, helped him to make it home the day before Thanksgiving! We all have So much to be thankful for!!! Now that Todd is home, the first projects that are needed will be bathroom modification, general house modifications for much safer accessibility, and transportation modifications. We need to raise as much as possible in a short amount of time so Todd can function safely throughout his home.  The bathroom remodel is set to happen; Dec 30th-Jan 2nd. These funds will go directly to purchase all of the parts needed for a full ADA remodel of Todd's bathroom. (No funds will be paying for labor costs towards plumbing (it is labor of love.) Additionally he will need doorways re-constructed, an electric scooter, eventually a prosthetic device and ultimately his vehicle modified so he can gain his freedom again. Additionally, If anyone has time to donate, or knows of a mechanic, or has any suggestions for programs to help with a lift chair, scooter or services, we will greatly appreciate all the knowledge we can get to Todd and his family.  We appreciate any and all help that anyone has to offer. We are hopeful that with the help of family & friends, along with this go fund me account, that we can meet the goal we have set forth in order to... HELP TODD WALK AGAIN! Thank you all for your continued prayers, Todd's real life battle has just begun, facing weekly trips to rehab, follow up procedures and sleepless nights. His overall health,  and stability for his family as a whole, is another big mountain they will all be climbing. Your thoughtfulness will go beyond moving mountains...
