Help needed for my Son and Grandson

If you can, please help. My Son, an Iraqi war veteran, has MS and has been off work for 2 months due to a broken bone in his foot. You can read more on his gofundme page.

Every little bit helps, so please donate anything you can. I wish I had a big bank account and could help him more. Everything I have is tied up in Douglas Connection, and I'm sending him what I can, but it's not nearly enough. I'll be listing some cables I have on hand in the next couple of days so I can help him out more. To buy these cables all you will need to do is donate to his go fund me page. That's the best way I can figure to help him right now.

Thank you for anything you can do to help my Son and Grandson.

    This community shouldn't have any problem surpassing his goal, Doug. We got this.

    I don’t have any money to send, but I’ll be keeping him in my prayers.

    If you're reading this, I've put up devices for a week; maybe more. I'll talk you guys later!
    I've always thought the goal of high-end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.

    Thank you everyone! Wow... Thank you Polk Family. Y'all have really stepped up to the plate on this. I really appreciate the outpouring of love and $ for my Son and Grandson. They are over half way to the goal in the first 24 hours!

    After Working 33 straight weeks of Mandatory Overtime my boss asked if I wanted to volunteer for 8 hours Sunday? I told him sure and he almost fell down.

    He asked what I was buying and I told him nothing, just helping a friend out!

    This will be the easiest Sunday I've ever worked as I finally realize how blessed I have been.

    I look forward to meeting Joe someday :)

    Thank you so much Darryl. You have no idea how much this means. If you ever need anything, just let me know. I feel so blessed to know folks like you and others on the Polk Forum that have been so generous. Thank you.

    I’ve been wondering, too.

  • Thanks for asking guys. I wish I had better news.
    He planned on being back to work by now, but catching a break seems impossible lately. The end of September rolled around, and his doctor released him to go back to work with the cast on his foot, but his work couldn’t let him return because wearing that in a shop is an OSHA violation. They extended his leave out until November 15th, his next appointment with the podiatrist.

    He's also needing to travel up to Minnesota for treatment at the Mayo Clinic for his MS and Optic Neuritis. He has an appointments on November 6th and 7th, with more tests to be ordered. So we still need to get him some extra $ I still have several cables for sale by donation to his gofundme page.

    Here's an update on Joe from his GoFundMe page:

    "Things medically are starting to improve finally. Had surgery on my foot a month ago, still hurts like heck but should be out of The cast in a little more than a month and back to work.

    Yesterday I started a new chemo drug that will hopefully over the next 6 months wean me off the steroids, which will help my body a lot.

    Still waiting on that darn tax refund. Since I claim the child tax credit, I don’t get it until the end of February. Better than last year when I got audited though.

    In all and all, things could be better, but they are better than they were."
