My dad (Captain Ted Sarandos Sr) has just had a stroke and is in ICU. I've created a page for him to keep in contact with friends and family.

My Dad is Ted Sarandos Sr,also known as "Captain Ted". He's the father of five ( Kathy, Jean, Terry, Teddy and Joey). My dad has always been a hard worker. He has the great ability and vision to go into a home or business, that is falling apart and make it beautiful. He was an electrician for 35 years and retired. He became " Captain Ted" after retirement. Now remember, I said he was always a hard worker so he really could not ever retire. He started a business called "Vehicle Distress". When a boat out at sea for the day became distressed,they would call the Coast Guard and the Coast Guard would call my dad, to come get them. I visited my dad for a week and every time the radio called in a distressed boat he would spring into action. It was very exciting. My dad loved being " Captain Ted" and I loved seeing him that way. A few years ago my dad suffered from a stroke. It really affected his speech. What this meant to my dad was the loss of his ability to be " Captain Ted". This was very hard to watch. He's worked so hard to get his speech back over the past few years. I'm very proud of him. Last night my dad suffered from another stroke. His speech has been affected again and he's very sad about it. He's in ICU fighting for his life but uncertain what that will mean for him. My dad is a proud man and has always taken care of himself. We all have offered my dad a home to live in but he loves living on his boat. I hope he will consider living with one of us so he can be safe. I know for someone that has never asked to be taken care of this is a hard thing to do. Please keep my dad in your prayers. Family and friends are all he has now to keep him safe and to help him remain proud. On behalf of all my brother's and sister's, I thank you for joining his Human Tribe. We will keep you posted on his progress.
Thanks again we love you all for your support.

Joey and I have some very special friends with a very special five year old girl named Mia. This very little girl has now had to take on a very big battle. She has been diagnosed with a malignant tumor called a medulloblastoma.Her mommy Sandra and her daddy Matt have been so strong for their little Mia. They are also kind enough to open the door and allow you in to share this very difficult journey. You see Matt and Sandra along with the entire Foutz family are also a driving force behind a great concept called the Human Tribe Project. I would like to tell you a little more about Mia's story before I show you how you can get involved with the Human Tribe Project.When I first posted this I had know idea how great this project really is. I'm sure when the Foutz family created this page they never could have realized how close to home it would become. I can say being a part of this tribe as been a beautiful experience. When someone you love becomes sick you feel scared, frustrated, and sometime useless. Being a part of the tribe allows you the opportunity to help and feel like you're doing something to make things better for the people you love so much. I want to invite you to become a part of Princess Mia's Tribe. Here is a post from her mommy and daddy. Please pass on the Human Tribe Project to anyone you know that may be in need of it.
Remember, you don't have to know the Tribe Member to join. You can send Mia messages of hope and prayers from anywhere in the world. Please Join the Princess Mia's Tribe!
