 PEAKS ISLAND, ME
During a normal morning of scalloping in Portland Harbor, Maine, Captain Rick Callow on the trawler "E Cosi II", suffered a catastrophic accident resulting in the loss of his right hand.  After almost ten days in the hospital, Rick is in physical therapy, and will be out of work for an unspecified amount of time, upwards of a year, before it is totally healed-hopefully.  Until that time, the monthly bills keep piling up.  Rick and his wife Nancy, who both own and operate the boat, are currently out of work.  They are hard workers, and would very much appreciate any help.  The accidnt happened on January 19th, 2017.  They have been unable to work since then.  Support of any kind would be appreciated.

The past seven weeks since Rick's hand was severed, and then re-attached, have been incredibly hard for Rick and Nancy. However, without the people who have stepped up to support them, whether the miracles at Maine Medical, monies donated, meals cooked, wood split, kind words, or any of the other many ways people have reached out to help them, their journey so far would have felt insurmountable. They are sending their deep and humble thanks to everyone-everywhere, for the compassion, care and support. The are cautiously optimistic for Rick to eventually regain use of his damaged hand. It will be a long, long journey. They thank all of you for being part of that journey. With love and thanks from Rick and Nancy.
