THE STORY:

After a year of being out here, Richard has finally committed to staying in Colorado, close to his daughter, son-in-law, and adorable grandkids! At this point, keeping his house in Michigan is quite costly and is no longer feasible. Unfortunately, Parkinson's Disease makes living alone in his house imposible.

The good news is that we recently found a great neurologist in Denver who is extremely knowledgeable about Parkinson's. He just had a procedure done this week which will greatly improve his well-being and over-all functioning!

Accompanied by Eva and Chelsea, Richard is flying out to Detroit on June 10th to say farewell to friends and the house, and to clear out the house and move the few belongings he wishes to keep, to Colorado. He has money for the airline tickets, but is on a very fixed budget, as most of his income goes directly to Medicaid which covers all of his living costs in his care facility. We are asking for your help funding the cost of shipping his belongings out here, paying for moving help, renting a car, and food and other trip expenses. Thank you so much for your generosity!!
