Update on Andy Reed’s Recovery
The Foundation reached out to the Air Commando community for donations and assistance to help Andy… Here is a recent update on his progress.
Things are moving along well with Andy’s recovery, his visits to Gainesville for doctor visits are now 3 months apart, he is taking his medication, he is still struggling with physical therapy. Andy is gaining weight slowly and still has a long way to go!
Former Pave Low gunner, retired MSgt Andy Reed was in dire need of a liver transplant. The good news is he was fortunate to receive a donor liver and had his surgery on 10 July. The Air Commando Foundation (ACF) is assisting with fundraising on Andy’s behalf for his aftercare that could take up to six months and $15,000 or more.
ACF already contributed $1,200 to his pre-surgery support and will provide the first $5,000 of his post-surgery recovery for things that Tricare will not cover.
Your donations to ACF for this specific cause will allow additional support. Any funds not used for this effort will remain in the general ACF account for future unmet needs of Air Commandos and their families. ACF is a 501(c)(3) benevolent organization, and all donations are tax deductible.
Thank you for your continued support of our Air Commandos and their families!
