Hi some may know or not that I have been the care taker for Robert Fitzgerald(65) the last 3 yrs. Rob is a disabled Vietnam Vet. with PTSD, Hepatitis C, liver disease, diabetes and as of last your diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer .
As a non service connected veteran he only gets minimal medical from the VA. For over 30+ years he has fought tooth and nail with the VA. for service connected and as of last year was turned down again for the 5th time.
Rob gets SSD so his financial problems are always an issue. Not being able to pay for some meds. to currently being in foreclosure procedures with his lawyer and bank are just the major ones.
Rob has never been outside of PA. other than Vietnam, NC. for boot camp, a trip to DC with fellow Vets from his PTSD group and the occasional jaunt to NJ. A couple years ago Rob and I planned a trip cross the USA, something he was so excited about as was I. But his VA claim was denied. Needless to say his wishes to see America and the Grand Canyon went bust. I asked him a few weeks ago what his biggest wish was, his answer was that he wished he could of seen the Grand Canyon like we planned.
So my friends I need your help. Sometime this summer I would like to take Rob to the G.C. He has no idea I am asking for help and he would be very embarrassed about it. If we can meet the goal I will video his reactions when I tell him as well as doing a video documentary of the entire trip.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. If you have questions and or ideas please feel free to message me on FB or email me at Herbfulton67@yahoo.com
Thank you and much love ,
Herb "Red" Fulton
