Flex Wheeler has been going through a tough time lately, to say the least. Now Dennis James has decided to start a GoFundMe to help him out.
News recently broke that bodybuilding legend Flex Wheeler was forced to get a partial amputation on his leg. He had been having a ton of health issues prior to this. However, they would culminate into an emergency surgery, removing the lower part of his right leg.
Wheeler was maintaining a fairly positive mindset throughout this ordeal. Although he did share a video, opening up about his emotions just before the procedure. Additionally, he has received all kinds of support from the bodybuilding community.
Nevertheless, the support for Wheeler keeps pouring in. Most recently, it has come in the form of a GoFundMe page set up by Dennis James. In an Instagram post, James explained why he set up the page, and how you can help reach their goal of $120,000.
This was his post about Flex Wheeler:
“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.
Thank you for all your support. Let’s all come together and help out Flex Wheeler. gf.me/u/wn4q8b click link in my bio”
