Click here to support Medical assistance for WWII veteran by Jenny Smith
Veteran Needs Assistance! Any and all support for Clarence would be greatly appreciated! He's a WWII and Korean War veteran. If you're looking for a way to support a veteran in honor of Veterans Day, but don't know how - here's your chance. Note from Clarence’s Granddaughter: Two weeks ago grandpa found himself back in the hospital with low blood pressure and low oxygen levels. While in the ER they discovered his hip was once again out of place and he had a bowel obstruction, which was causing his abdominal pain. He spent 4 days in the hospital and is now back home. They have decided it is unsafe to do another hip surgery, and since it won't stay in place on its own they have put grandpa in a brace. His hip will remain out and he will not be wheelchair bound 100%. Grandma is still taking care of him at home with the assistance of home healthcare. We have scheduled a stair lift to be installed, so he can get in and out of the house easier for doctors visits. We are raising money for the stair lift, a wheelchair ramp, and a lighter wheelchair to help with his mobility. We are truly grateful for the assistance and continued prayers for our grandfather.
