Ed's Medical Fund

My dad, Ed , has helped so many people in his life. He was a consummate volunteer and raised thousands for dozens of charities. He donated so much blood that would make a vampire jealous. 

And now, he needs your help. He's facing a mountain of debt and currently his entire pension goes towards his assisted living facility. Hecurrently in a short term rehab facility and insurance will not cover his stay. The debt keeps piling up and I'm fearful about how well pay that bill and what lies ahead.

He's likely going to need to move to long term care soon and state aid won't kick in for at least a year or two. 

He's a veteran, a volunteer, a champion, and a dad. And I hope you can offer up any amount to help him out. 

Much love to you all and thank you.
