On Friday morning, December 15, Jerome was found at home suffering from a life-threatening stroke. Jerome was taken to SLU Hospital where he remains in the ICU. Jerome's condition is very dire as he is fighting the loss of speech and control of his body.
The doctors are concerned with his organs due to the time he may have been incapacitated and alone before he was found. Every day he seems to be trying to fight harder but he will be going up a large mountain for a while.
To the man with the biggest heart, and who is always there to greet you with a big HELLO. The man behind the scenes that never expects anything in return. The hardest worker CCRC has. We have been Jerome's work family for more than 30 years and hope we can help him and his family. If you know Jerome, you know his smile. Jerome lives with his sister in a very modest home in St. Louis City and has taken care of his family for many years.
Our mission is to bring that smile back.
Please help us share Jerome’s smile by helping us raise money for him and his family.
