Aortic stent. he is now back home with me taking care of him around the clock. Ron was a very active 77 year old man, playing tennis, golf, and a lot of fishing as well as managing the 30 unit apt. complex he lived in. always helping the young tennents with advice and brief counsiling with drug and alcohol problems and tryig to place them with jobs etc; he went to U.F. Health, Shands hospital in gainsville,fl. in january, 2016 and just got home. his S.S. check is 1000.00 per month, and his expenses are about 2000.00 per month. we are now completely broke and without money for much needed medical supplies that are not covered by insurance. he is to say the very least, quite deppressed. he also needs kidney dialysis 4-days per week at 4-hours per visit. he would love to be able to purchase a motorized chair someday in his shortened life. if we could rais around $5000.00, it would put a big dent in our expences. right now, we would be happy to be able to have gas money for rides etc; with the dialysis, i don't know just how long God will let him live, i just want to show him, with your help some quality of life. i cry every morning that i cant afford to make him comfortable, and possibly even smile and have a little fun. but again, we have no money. our address is: 6629 Del Prado Terrace. new port richey, fl. 34652. our phone number is: 727-403-6432 please call me,John Joseph so i can tell the story about this most painful 4 months and discuss our needs. please help.
