The family and friends of Richard Street are uniting to raise money to help with his recovery from a severe, life-altering stroke.

Our beloved Richard Street suffered a severe stroke on Tuesday April 10, 2012. The stroke has left him paralyzed on the left side of his body and, despite an amazingly quick recovery to this point, it is becoming increasingly clear that he has a long road of rehabilitation in front of him.

Richard is currently still in the hospital where he is being cared for by an excellent nursing and rehab staff and his wife Carlie, but soon the time will come when he is going to need to return home. Both Carlie and Richard have been unable to work since the stroke, yet life goes on. Carlie and Richard were stretched tight financially before this crisis, and now with medical costs, home alterations (they will need to add a ramp to the front of their house, for example), and lack of income from the inability to work they need a little extra help.

We hope to generate funds to help the Streets cover some of their loss of income, medical expenses, and home alterations, and we are particularly looking to help them cover the gap between the present and when disability and some of the other programs they are applying for kick in.

If you are able, please consider helping Richard and Carlie through this difficult time.
