For Kevin Woolever
for the Go Fund Me page organized by James Zapetis. Info copied from the site is below -
Hi, my name is Jim and I am fundraising for my friend Kevin Woolever and his wife, Sharon. After high school, Kevin went to Alfred State. In 1980, He got hired by Rochester Gas & Electric company (RG&E) as an Instrument & Control Technician at Beebe Station and later transferred to R.E. Ginna Nuclear Power Plant in Ontario, NY. He also provided outage support to Russel Station. Kevin left Ginna station (then owned by Constellation) in 2007 and worked on the road as an I&C Tech at various power plants in the U.S., most recently with Greenidge Generation LLC in Dresden, NY.
Kevin has been diagnosed with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. Here’s a link that describes this disease: What is ALS
? This is the same disease that his father had.
Currently Kevin’s symptoms include slow or slurred speech (called dysarthria or “thick speech”) and difficulty in projecting the voice. Having his personal experience seeing what this disease did to his father, Kevin is aware of what is to come.
His wish is to be able to prevent foreclosure of their house and hopefully pay off the rest of the mortgage so Sharon doesn’t have to carry that burden. Additionally, to help with the medical costs as this disease progresses. At the very least they are going to need help with their household expenses for the next few weeks.
Any help that you can provide is very much appreciated. Even if it is just sharing this GoFundMe. Thank you so much.
