Thanks everybody for the response on the Face Book page. For those of you who are uncomfortable using a credit card on the Go Fund Me site, you can send me a check and I will add it to the Sam Allen fund.

Thanks Ammo for pointing that out. Prognosis is not good. The Docs have pulled the plug on him so things are looking bad. Sorry for the confusion. We are hoping for the best, but preparing for the worst.

My older brother is chief surgeon for Kaiser Permanente.
One day in ICU will cost around $1500. Sam is in ICU for six weeks.
Medicare will only cover 60%.
Therefore $500 from Hal is over the top donation.
Thank you Hal.

Hal. We use it for our SF wives when a soldier falls or is wounded. It's a great way to take some of the burden. Lori (Bill's wife)

If you wish to participate in the meal train, please read the instructions. If you are not local to Sam and Robin you can schedule a delivery through a restaurant delivery app like takeout.com and then put that info on your selected date on the meal train. If you have questions you can email your phone no to wegunter54@gmail.com and I'll call you back. Thanks, Lori
