Bob Trumble suffered a simple slip and fall 6 years ago that changed the course of his life.

After regaining consciousness from his fall, he could not move. His spinal column was pinched due to the angle of his head during his fall and the following period of unconsciousness. After an air ambulance evacuation to the University of Michigan Hospital NCIU, spinal surgery relieved the pressure on his spinal cord, and some sensation to Bob’s limbs returned. A long road of recovery faced him.

Dear friends,
I hope you are doing well. I am undergoing some financial difficulty at the moment while I try to get some more funds to liquidate to cover my maxed-out Visa.

I thank Visiting Angels, my 24-hour caregivers, for their patience in paying off overdue bills.

For those of you who have given generously to my Help Hope Live account in the past 4 years, thank you.
I have pretty much used those funds to pay overdue bills.

Also, if you can get some fundraising activities going, now would be a very good time to get them going. Help Hope Live
can help with arranging fundraisers.
Photo exhibitions, fundraising concerts, and many other possibilities.

I have been unable to attend my therapy sessions since February, due to insurance problems.I am hoping to return soon, but rather than face a continued long time without therapy, I am hoping that you can help by donating some funds.

Thank you all!
