Support Fred Rychener
One of God’s greatest treasures is having a dad who loves his children unconditionally. Our family has been blessed with an amazing man that we are happy to call our dad. Fred was born and raised in Pettisville, Ohio. He then joined the United States Air Force, where he served for 21 years. After retiring from the Air Force, our family moved to Pettisville to have the opportunity to live by our dad’s family, and be a part of a strong, loving community. Our dad loves spending time with his family and friends. One of his favorite things to do is drive around Pettisville in his golf cart, trying to teach his grandchildren how to drive. Next to his love for God, his family is his life, and watching his grandchildren play sports gives him the greatest joy.
Fred had back surgery on May 11, 2018, and as a result, has been diagnosed with high levels of pain at the surgical site and medicinal side effects. Over the years he has also been diagnosed with memory loss and arthritis. These diagnoses have been, in large part, due to wear and tear on his joints from serving in the military, having multiple surgeries, accidents, and being on certain medications. Fred enjoys the life that God has granted him, however, each day has become a struggle for him both physically and mentally. The pain that he experiences has caused him to become depressed and unable to physically accomplish the daily things that he once was able to enjoy.
Sara’s Garden is an amazing organization, and we know our dad is very proud of everything they do for their community. He holds it very dear to his heart. Our family has seen first-hand what an amazing difference hyperbaric chambers can give to a person’s life. We have known of Sara’s Garden from the beginning, as Sara was Fred’s niece.
On behalf of our dad, Frederick Donald Rychener, we would like to ask for your help with the cost of HBOT for our dad. HBOT treatments have been said to be beneficial in the recovery of a patient after spinal surgery. With insurance unable to cover the cost of the treatments, it will cause my parents to have to pay for the total cost out-of-pocket. To pay for the treatments would cause a financial strain on our parents. They would be unable to afford the cost of treatments; therefore, our dad would not be able to have the HBOT treatments that he needs.
That is why we could really use your help. HBOT is only $150.00 per treatment at Sara’s Garden. If you could assist us with the cost (or even just part of the cost) of a single $150 HBOT treatment, it would help reduce our parents’ overall expenses greatly. 100% of the funds received go into an account in Fred’s name and will be used for his treatments. Any contribution made would be considered a tax-deductible donation as Sara’s Garden is a 501(c)(3) non-profit facility. Checks can be made out to Sara’s Garden with Fred Rychener written on a sheet of paper accompanying the check. Please do NOT write his name directly on the check. You can also donate online via credit card by clicking on the “donate now” button below.
Thank you for taking the time to read about our Dad and considering to help!
