Support For Luke McWilliams

At approximately 9:30 PM on November 19th, I received the alarming news that my little brother, Luke McWilliams, was being life-flighted to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston’s hospital. All we knew at the moment was that Luke was in critical condition with both legs crushed and severe vascular damage to his femoral artery. While waiting through his initial surgery, we discovered a car lost control and went through a garage, trapping Luke under a parked van in the garage, and pinning his friend Braden Stevenson between the car and the wall. After seven hours of surgery, at just 12 years old, he now has a plate from his hip to his knee, pins in both knees, a halo to hold his tibia and femur together, and 41 units worth of blood transfusions due to the significant amount he lost. Luke has multiple surgeries set in place over the next couple of weeks, one being on Thanksgiving day, along with several months of rehabilition before he is even able to walk again. My prayers go out to the Stevenson family as well while they deal with this tragic loss. Thank you for all of the concern and support already given as the Stevenson family work towards compensating for this unpredictable moment. Many people have been asking how they can help our family in this time of despair. His medical expenses are multiplying faster than we ever could have expected and our single mother won't be able to work to pay off these bills and be available to give him the continuous care he's going to need. Please consider donating to aid us in these costs. Any and all donations are greatly appreciated and will be put towards Lukes’s long road to recovery.

Update on Luke, he is finally working towards his road to recovery. Luke has endured a great deal of trauma before this point and he is now able to move his upper extremities on his own and he got the tubes removed from his throat and nasal passages. Still working on the dates for the upcoming surgeries and he is still fighting very hard. We are so proud of him and thankful for everyone’s prayers and concerns.

Please continue to keep Luke and our family in your prayers. Luke is still in critical condition and has recently developed pneumonia with a high grade fever that has lasted for days.
Pray that God will place his healing hands upon him giving his body the strength needed to be able to undergo the surgery he so desperately needs to continue down his road to recovery.
Our family has decided that it is in his best interest to stop visitations for a while. He needs rest and his body does not need to be exposed to anything that could increase his chances of infection. Thank you for all of the support and concern given, please continue to keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

I wanted to take a moment to thank each and every one that has donated and kept Luke in their prayers. It truly helps in a time like this and means a lot to my family as well as the Stevenson family for the immense amount of support shown in our community.
Luke is still in critical condition and having complications regarding his kidneys and a high grade fever. He was scheduled to have surgery this morning but could not due to the severity of his injuries. Luke is losing blood as fast as they are giving it to him and he is still in a medically induced coma. He is expecting multiple surgeries once his body stabilizes enough to endure them. Once again, I thank everyone for the support that has been given.
