Rodd Collins/MarineHowTo update

As many of you already know, Rodd had serious stroke a few months ago that's left him paralyzed on his left side. Fortunately he still has his mind, his ability to talk his eyesight and his sense of humor. He's finally out of the hospital after 53 days. Although he has good insurance, it doesn't begin to cover everything and he's had to close his business which was his source of income, so he needs help from all those who've been loyal friends and customers. His brother had created a site to process donations through his corporation, but just recently switched it over to a go-fund-me account. "We had to do this because the other PayPal donate button was on my corporation and all those donations were taxable. My accountant said that go-fund -me is treated as a gift and not taxable so my brother decided to switch that over."

There's a lot more information on the Marine HowTo site, including a "donate" button that accepts credit and debit cards and PayPal.

Please share this on any and all other sites where his friends and customers are likely to hang out.

Re: Rodd Collins/MarineHowTo update

Peggie, you read my mind! I was just wondering how Rodd was doing!

For anyone who might be interested, here's a thread from Thanksgiving/Christmas that takes you through the chronology of events. The last post is a picture of Rodd leaving the hospital.

Fair winds, Rodd! Keep on keepin' on!
