A family residing in Upstate NY was boating on Wednesday, July 6th, on Skaneateles Lake. This included Chris and his 8 year old daughter. While tubing, Chris and his daughter were struck by a boat, causing serious injuries. Chris suffered a broken arm, lacerations and other minor injuries. His daughter lost both her left arm and leg and suffered serious head trauma.

I am providing an update as a response to many requests from this fundraiser.

I am not directly related to the persons involved but have been a close family friend for over 20 years. The funds are going directly to the father of the child in the accident. How it is used will be at his discretion, but one can only imagine the future cost in medical bills and home modifications it will take to bring his baby home.

I love that family with all my heart and at this time this is the only way I can help.

Thanks for the prayers and support.

I want to say thank you to every person who has taken their time and resources to help promote this campaign. Although we fell just short or our goals every penny will be very useful in helping this family move forward and look to a better future. Again we cannot thank you enough for your time and monetary donations. Please keep this family in your thoughts and prayers.

I apologize for the delay I know many people have been asking for updates. This is what we know as of today.

The father is expected to make a full recovery and hopes to be released sometime this week.

Their daughter remains to be closely monitored by her many physicians but they are all very hopeful for her future. She still remains in critical condition.

The family is extremely grateful for everyone's overwhelming support. Please continue to keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

We want to thank each and every one of you for your support. We've already begun renovations to the house to make sure she will have a safe and accessible home to come home to and that would not have been possible without all your support. They are both doing well but there is a long road ahead of us. If you would like to continue to support us we are working on a golf tournament and charity event being held Sept 24th. Again thank you!!!!!!!
