I don't know how I feel....I just saw this and live just outside of Peterborough and I had heard nothing of Eddo's stroke. How terrible. He taught me when he was first starting out and I learned more from him in the brief time I spent with him than in all the years of other trainers combined. I hope he is doing well.
Eddo had a paralyzing stroke in June just a few weeks after his first child was born. He is paralyzed on his left side - no use of left arm or leg. His speech is not affected much, so he can talk on the phone. Can't really use the computer much because he is limited with only one hand.
He is in heavy rehab and working hard. He can now stand up with assistance, but will have to learn to walk again and with so little use of the left leg, that will be a long painful process.
All the fundraising is to help him get an all-terrain motorized wheelchair so he can get around on his farm and begin teaching riding lessons to his students again.
PM me if you'd like his phone number. I'm sure he'd love to talk with you. He's a great guy and being grounded is very hard on someone as active as he was.
I've got you down for $400. Please PM me your name and contact information so that I can phone you around 3:30 on Saturday if you have been outbid to give you a chance to rebid or so I can reach you if you won.
