Rickey Gladden loves his children immensely and left Detroit, to work. Through my studies, I’ve been told that writing about family members is a big no-no, but I want the world to understand my struggles as I use this form of media to help encourage other people who find it difficult to succeed throughout the ups and downs of life.
Rickey still is breathing with the help of a respirator. The doctors are going to remove the tube soon, and hopefully, he will breathe on his on, if not he will have a trachea inserted. I have not raised enough money to get to Portland, Oregon yet, but I will remain hopeful.
