An appeal started by Norm Breyfogle‘s sister-in-law, raising money for his care after the famed Batman artist suffered a stroke before Christmas, has raised almost $50,000 towards the estimate $200,000 costs.
Hello Wonderful Friends! This is Wendy Wiegert, basically Norms ‘sister-in-law of 10 years. His Brother Kevin Breyfogle and I have created this fundraiser for him and I want to report that Norm is coming near home to us tonight and being placed in a Nursing Home just 2 miles from us so that we can better help him and he will get the physical therapy he needs to start his recovery! Yah!
The Nursing home is charging him just over $10,000 a month and that is out of pocket until he qualifies for medicaid which will be approx. 6 months from now we are told. Medical expenses at the hospital for nearly 7 days of I.C.U. will deplete his life savings and now this.
Kevin and I cannot thank you all enough for your loving support, because without you…this would not be possible! The main thing is…he will be near us for Christmas as well and is on his way to re-couping and healing! We all NEED him! We have a HUGE goal to reach to cover all of his potential expenses and those that have already incurred…so PLEASE keep on sharing the link and post it to your FB pages, TWITTER and the like! Norm has helped sooo many in his lifetime! Time to pay it forward for someone that really deserves it! You can e-mail us anytime with questions at my e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you all and God Bless you! Please have a very Merry Christmas and hug your loved ones!

I was able to bring my IPAD with me to show Norm how much all of you have supported him thus far and he was in tears with gratitude to all of you! He wants so badly to be in contact with all of you to Thank you all and I will hopefully be able to bring him an IPAD today and teach him how to use it so he can once again be in contact with all of you and touch base.
