For Jarrod Welch hospital expenses

$2,635 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 42 people in 39 months
Hi, My name is Michael Bricault, Yesterday August 11, 2015 my Brother-in-law Jarrod Welch got into a motorcycle accident in algoma township between Spart and Cedar Springs Michigan.
My sister does not know i am doing this, but she is in need of support to help pay for the bills that are being occured. Jarrod's condition is dire, and he is at Spctrum-Buttrworh, Meijer Heart Center in Grand Rapids, michigan.
He suffered a tramatic head injury and has swelling on the brain.
If Jarrod can make it through the next four days with out it swelling so big that it will crush his brain stem and he will die. we are praying he will make it and then there are going to be years of physcal theropy ahead.
Jarrod did not pay up on his Aflac Insurance so all the bills are on my sister Kathy Welch. If Jarrod does not pull trough she will need the money still to pay for a funeral and expences.
My wish is that the good people out there can help my sister and family she has 2 boys to raise one starting college, and th other is in high school

This past week has had it's up's and downs. The family is holding up as best they can. I was up at the Driftwood at Croton and the band was playing. One of Jarrod's friends from up north was there and had the band dedicate a song to Jarrod. After the band played he bought them all shots and they toasted Jarrod's life and to his heavenly journey home. My brothers Tom and Ed were there along with Tom's son Brian and our friend Kris (Cheeser) we all stood and toasted as well.

Jarrod will be taken off life support friday. The traumatic brain injury is to much for him to lead some sort of a productive life. He would have to be in a nursing home 24/7 in a vegetative state, and Jarrod would not like that. He was an avid hunter, fisherman and was alway busy doing something. He treated my sister great. he will be missed by all who knew him.
