Brenton Thornicroft's Fundraiser:

Kelly Family Fund

In the last couple of months Bob and Monica Kelly and their family have been affected by not one, but two, life changing occurrences. Bob suffered a stroke which will leave him with an undetermined amount of time of rehabilitation and unable to work; their eldest Son, Brandon, only one week after Bob's stroke, was in a serious accident which resulted in partial leg amputation and, likewise, will leave Brandon unable to work for an undetermined amount of time. Bob and Brandon - Father and Son - are principals with the Family Business of 15 years, Advanced Sheet Metal Services. Additionally, Monica as another principal of the company, who has dedicated herself to the passion of the business will now dedicate much of her time to supporting the rehabilitation of, both, Bob and Brandon.

The outpour of support from each and everyone of you, and beyond, has been heartfelt and simply overwhelming. One of Bob's very close friends and industry associates said to me, "Bob has done something special and good for every person with whom Bob has interacted and every one of those people wants to give back to the family in some way". Personally, and on behalf of Bob's family and friends, I could not have stated it any better.

Many of you have asked, "what can I do". The answer is tough to give as there really are only so many hands that can do a task. The prayers, thoughts, cards and Facebook messages have been a wonderful support and are much appreciated.

For those of you who wish to and can, we have established this fund to hopefully temporarily alleviate some of the personal financial pressure on the Kelly family.
