About this Meal Train page
As many of you know, our friend Chad Israel has developed renal failure due to a complication from his diabetes and is currently on daily dialysis as he waits for kidney. Chad is a single dad to four amazing kids and the physical toll of the dialysis prevents him from working right now and makes it challenging to do everything he wants to for himself and his family. If you know Chad, you know he would do anything for anyone-anytime. He has been a part of the Mel Ott family for almost 10 years, serving as a coach and board member, and most recently as League President. If you have been to Mel Ott, you have seen Chad (and/or any of his kids- either playing on the field, or serving you at the snack stand)! He has been a nurse for almost 20 years, the last 14 of which have been spent in ECMC's surgical unit. Chad has done so much for so many over the years, and now we are going to do something for him!
