The WRBL News 3 sports team is asking the Valley area to help out with an extended member of our news family. Dale Williams, the father of one of our co-workers at WRBL, is battling for his health.
Williams contracted Covid-19 virus and had to put on a ventilator in the hospital. During this time Dale suffered a stroke, and now he has immobility on the left side of his body. He spent two months in the hospital, and was able to go home. This week Williams has suffered another stroke.
The family set up this GoFundMe fundraiser to help the family cover medical expenses that their insurance can’t cover. The Williams family is asking for donations of any amount.
Here’s a link to the GoFundMe link where you can donate:
