Rick Gearty
62-year-old Veteran & Retired Boston Firefighter.

On 11/15/13 Rick had a tooth removed and within 24 hours he became incoherent and was rushed by ambulance to Gulf Coast Hospital in Fort Myers.  

An infection spread to his brain and after having surgery, Rick spent several weeks in the ICU, where he recovered some speech and mobility.  He was transferred to Bay Pines VA Hospital in St. Petersburg, where he is now fighting for his life and is in need of donations so he can enter into a rehabilitation facility, where he can hopefully improve his brain function and mobility.  Any amount would be helpful.

Please share this as much as you can so we can reach a wide audience.  We are also looking for business and/or facilities that can help with his recovery.

Please pray for Rick - a father, treasured family member and an amazing friend to so many people.
