Help 4 Alex & Brittain
Help us turn their tragedy into a treasure!
We were invited to a beautiful wedding this Friday, June 10th 2016. It was going to be one of the happiest days for two amazing young people. Months of planning, careful budgeting, and saving to create a lifetime memory. Unfortunately 6/10/16 will no longer be their dreamy wedding date. On Monday, just 4 days before their wedding, the groom-to-be had a horrific accident while working. His legs were badly crushed and he was immediately rushed to the ER.
The doctors were not sure of the extent of damage to his legs. After multiple emergency surgeries that night and the power of of prayer, his legs were safe & set in casts. Alex is now on a long and painful road to recovery. The bride-to-be has never lost hope and stayed strong with the loving support of friends, family and total strangers.
As we all know, short notice cancellations with weddings are typically a major loss.
Below is a post from Brittain's FB page to share with you.
"People always say bad won't come their way and ruin an important day. Well yesterday my world crashed. Who would think, days before your wedding your fiancé gets into a bad accident at work. Doctor said he's lucky he still has his legs. He'll be able to walk again but not for months. Emergency surgery and days at the hospital. I won't leave his side. I can't. This was gods true test. I'm here through the worst and looking forward to the best. Money can't replace his life, so what ever happens with the wedding... I'm ok with because I'd rather reschedule, than cancel. My fiancé is alive, and last night, I wasn't sure of that. I'm so over joyed by the amount of love and support this man has from family and friends. Even strangers have reached out. We thank each and every one of you."
Let's help them unite in marriage and give these kids a great wedding gift. They deserve a beautiful day.
