Rodney's New Prosthetic leg / foot
Organized by: Loretta Galusha
I am married to a 50 yr old gentle man who is a below the knee amputee at age of 7 , He had a accident on a bull dozer back in 1972 and completely severed his leg from below the knee he had . Since then he has overcome many obstacles that stand in his way. We have had 3 children and learning to have to tell each one of them what had happen to him was a major obstacle for him . He currently is a logger he has had a broken foot for many months and has had to resort to duct taping it and gluing it now the problem is it is broken completely off at the ankle to where there is no way for him to (repair) it like he was so he has his boot tied on it as highly as he can as to keep the foot at least so he can walk on it because with out his work we would not be able to pay our very over due bills I recently in March had a double bypass on my heart which set us back even further I just wanted to start something like a fundraiser so I can get him something that not only does he desperately need but he deserves to have a new leg without fault he is my world and would do anything I could to make sure he gets this thank you so much for taking the time to read this . Just also wanted to note if anyone has any good ideas on where I can go to get Rodney some help for repair that would also be greatly appreciated . I was just speaking to a friend and I know how hard it is for people to have money after the holidays and that is okay as well I understand !
