Fred Abeles GoFundMe

Fred Abeles, current South Puget Sound Woodturners chapter President, fell on the ice during last month’s ice storm. Fred was admitted to the University of Washington’s Harborview Medical Center ICU with significant head injuries. Ultimately the doctors determined that surgery would not be required, but Fred’s recovery will take a significant amount of time. Fred will need to spend some time in a skilled nursing facility and physical therapy before he will be able to return home. This GoFundMe will help Fred and Donna with the substantial medical expenses to ensure Fred’s recovery.
