LT S. TUDOR LIGHTNING SURVIVOR
On June 28th, 2014, Lt. Stu Tudor; a Columbus, Ohio firefighter of 23 years, was donating his time as a board member for Get Behind The Badge, a first responders organization which helps raise money for police officers and firefighters who are injured in the line of duty.
Ironically that same day, Lt. Tudor was tragically struck by lightning at the Columbus Crew Stadium, and has left him hospitalized since June 28, 2014, and his battle toward recovery remains ongoing.
In addition to the daily ups and downs involved in this slow and painful recovery, the lightning strike has saddled Lt. Tudor and his loved ones with extensive medical bills, renovations of home for complete wheelchair accessibility, a Van with wheelchair lift that will lock the wheelchair in, and the list goes on and on. While Lt. Tudor and his family remain optimistic about his recovery, his short and long-term future remains uncertain at this time.
Lt. Tudor, Lisa, and his family appreciate all the support they have received as they deal with the mental and physical challenges this ordeal has caused. The lightning strike has put their lives on hold, but your generosity has allowed Lt. Tudor to focus on his physical recovery.
Lt. Tudor cannot thank everyone enough for the financial donations made in his time of need. Please continue to spread the word about the hardships Lt. Tudor faces because of his attempt to give back to his community.
All our love,
Lt. Stu Tudor, Lisa A. Watford, the Tudor Family, and the Columbus Fire Department.

I live in Columbus, Ohio and I am a direct lightning strike survivor from June 16, 1998. I have way to many health issues from the lightning strike. I have continued to pray for Stu but know Stu you are not alone. I sent you a friends request and a private message along time ago to show my support for your recovery. God Bless You! Darla :)
