About this Meal Train page
Whether you know him as Frederick, Fred, or Ricky, there's no doubt that we all know Ricky Tempesta as a guy who is there for any one, any time, any place, for any reason. It's time for us to return the favor and help out the Tempesta family in their time of need.
Ricky went to the hospital earlier this month for a routine procedure that did not go as planned. He had to spend some time in the ICU and was discharged home. Several days later he woke up with severe shortness of breath and was emergently taken back to the hospital with the help of the Verona Rescue Squad and Verona PBA. He was found to have large bilateral pulmonary emboli and blood clots in both of his legs. He had to have another procedure to remove the blood clots from his lungs and will be spending some more time in the ICU. Ricky is still in the hospital and has a long road to recovery ahead.
Ricky and his family are well known for their countless hours of dedication to the Verona Rescue Squad and now they need our help!
