As with every major operation, money is needed to help pay the very expensive medical bills.
Bodybuilding superstar Dennis James has just recently started a GoFundMe account to help Flex Wheeler with his medical bills.
Dennis went on to explain that this has been a problem for Flex for the past 15 years and unfortunately the only solution was to get part of his right leg amputated.
The goal to reach is $120,000.
Dennis James left a message explaining the matter in detail on the GoFundPage.
“Hey everyone, I’m reaching out to you today for your help and support for a close friend and industry legend.
As many of you know, Flex Wheeler recently underwent surgery to amputate his lower leg.
After nearly a year and multiple surgeries attempting to save his leg from recurring blood clots caused by a deterioration of a 15 year old vein graft from kidney surgery, there was nothing else that could be done.
Between the surgeries and lengthy hospital stays, Flex has been unable to travel for work these past many months and is now faced with insurmountable medical bills.
In an effort to help Flex through this difficult time, I have started a go-fund me account and it is my hope that together we can help Flex through his rehabilitation and look forward to seeing him again when he resumes his travels.” – Dennis James
