To all fellow R/C modelers:
On behalf of our club, New Orleans Model Aviation Club (N.O.M.A.C.), I am submitting this to humbly request your assistance in helping one of our own gain the medical funding necessary to provide a life-saving procedure, Allan Bachot.
Allan has been a member of R/C Fields for over twenty-nine years during which he was a loyal, hard-working member and a main-stay in helping Bob Neider, Club President, in the maintenance of the flying field and associated equipment. Additionally, he served as a Boy Scout Troop Master at St. Rosalie School during which he utilized R/C Fields as a camping facility for many years.
He is now in need of potentially life-saving surgery within the next two to three weeks and is unable to come up with the total co-payment required before the work can be scheduled.
We have done everything possible, at a Club level, to raise the necessary funding but have fallen short in our effort. The co-payment is $5,000.00 of which we have about half. Allan does have health insurance for both himself and family members, but nothing can be started without a co-payment being received by the hospital, which he does not have.
Please consider assisting Allan in his quest to get this surgery so we can keep this outstanding individual with us for many years to come.
I have been requested, by Bob Neider, to receive and manage all of the funding and provide them to Allan as required. To that end, please submit any donations to my address, listed below, making the checks payable to “Allan Bachot”.
If you have any questions, or wish more information, please feel free to contact me at 504.452.2310 to discuss this further.
We really appreciate any and all considerations on your part to help us in this effort.
Mr. Steven L. Mintz
