Ballwin Officer Flamion Family Fund
$371,203 of $375,000 goal
On July 8th, 2016 around 1100 am Ballwin Police Officer Mike Flamion was ambushed and shot while on a stop. The Officer is still in the hospital in critical condition in the Intensive Care Unit at a local hospital. This Officer and his family's lives will forever be changed as a result of this violent act. Please join us in supporting this Officer and his family.
This is the official fundraising page setup by his brothers and sisters at the City of Ballwin.
Officer Flamion is alert and recognizes his family, friends, and coworkers. Because of the injury, he is ventilated. He is able to answer yes or no questions by nodding his head and attempts to mouth words when communicating, which is hampered by his ventilation.
Officer Flamion and his family have been overwhelmed by the support of the Ballwin community and from around the world.
Thank you all for everything you have given both in the form of donations, but also your kind messages of support.
As you know Officer Mike Flamion suffered a gunshot wound to the neck during a traffic stop on Friday, July 8. Since that time, the community has shown overwhelming and unwavering support for Officer Flamion, his family, and the Ballwin Police Department. We have all been humbled by this generosity and thank you.
Officer Flamion is in an area hospital receiving exceptional care. He remains in stable but critical condition, however it is coming to light that his life, and that of his family will forever be changed by his injuries. He will require long-term medical care and we are confident that the community will stand by him on his long and difficult journey.
The family realizes that it’s impossible to thank each person individually, but they want you to know there are no words to express their gratitude for your ongoing support.
From the kind words and handwritten notes, to the blue ribbons hung throughout our city, to the food and financial donations. The family has been deeply touched by each one of these kind acts.
Again, on behalf of the family, we want to express our deepest appreciation for the incredible support you have shown over the past few days. Please check Officer Flamion’s GoFundMe page, https://www.gofundme.com/2dj4rtnt, for additional updates on his condition.
Dear Lord, One of your peacemakers is in need of your help. Please watch over him, give him the strength and guidance to bring him through stronger than ever. Help his family keep the faith and love him back to health. For we know not your plans we just prayer for understanding and those we hold dear. Amen
Being on a fixed income I don't have the money to donate like I want to. I can however offer you my continued prayers. I pray for this officer and his family. God will lead you through this. I also pray for every man or woman who put that badge on every day to protect us. Just in case nobody told you today how appreciatedyou guys all are, I'm telling you. God bless you all.
Wish I was a millionare so I could contribute, unfortunately I can' but I'll contribute by keeping him in my prayers (not generally a praying person)but so much happened in the last couple of weeks, 2 guys from Louisiana and Minneapolis basically murdered, and 5 policemen cut down, when they were just doing g their jobs providing for there family. Thinking of ALL of you
