If you know Pat and Russ, you know the basics of the story.
Pat and Russ have been pillars of the community for decades, selflessly giving to others. They now find themselves in need of a touch of help themselves.
In August Pat fell on her knee a day after having surgery on it. The last five months have turned into a whirlwind of surgeries, hospitals and care facilities. Pat is back home for the time being, while her doctors determine when to have her next, and hopefully, final, surgery. In the meantime, she needs someone to be close by any time she tries to get out of her wheelchair for any reason as she can not bear any weight on her leg at all.
