On October 30, 2005, Tedy made his return to Gillette Stadium, but the journey to get there was tough. Tedy was fortunate enough to have a great support system and amazing opportunities throughout his recovery, but not everyone is that lucky. This is where the Comeback Assistance Program (CAP) can help make a difference.

CAP will give Tedy’s Team the opportunity to assist and support stroke and heart disease survivors and caregivers on their personal comeback journeys.

For many survivors, the financial burden outside of what their health insurance covers can be overwhelming to themselves and their families. These types of costs can include; extended physical and speech therapies, procedures, medical equipment, and other smaller costs that can add up quick.

Please note that this program is only accepting applications for stroke or heart disease related inquiries at this time, and it does not pay/pay off the following: existing medical and/or personal bills, home health care, travel and/or lodging, medications, insurance, home improvements, down payments for a home or mortgages/rent.

We envision this program as a helping hand for survivors and their families, but we cannot do it without the help and support of our generous donors.

If you are interested in more information about the Tedy’s Team Comeback Assistance Program please fill out the form below and someone will reach out to you directly. **Please check your spam folder if you do not receive a response within 7 days. Please keep in mind that we are a smaller organization and our application process could take up to a month (or longer in some cases). Thank you in advance for your patience.
