Andrew Burnell Accident Fund
Everyones favorite little brother Andrew (aka Andy) Burrell was involved in a motorcycle accident Saturday night. If you don’t know Andy personally chances are you know someone who does and loves him. His fun loving, electric personality is known far and wide by friends and family across the country. Andy is currently getting the best care possible at Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville. He suffered serious injuries to both femurs, ankle, arms and ribs and has already undergone multiple surgeries. As much as anyone hates to ask for help this is our time to be there for our friend in any way we can. Along with this go fund me we are looking to set up a fundraiser in the near future. As well as taking art/material donations for an auction to take place during the fundraiser. He’s looking at a long and difficult recovery over the next 6 months. Your donations will help Andy maintain his best quality of life during that time. Any amount large or small is greatly appreciated.+ Read More
Hey guys! It’s been a while since the last update. Andy was released last Sunday to SKY rehab facility here in Bowling Green, where he’ll be for the next two weeks. All staples have been removed and his wounds are healing perfect. He’s making great progress with his rehab and is happy to be “home” with his friends. He’s looking at 4-6 months before he is walking freely and up to a year to regain full mobility of his left shoulder. Feel free to contact him to visit! We will be getting his house ready to come home soon. Thanks to your donations Andy will be able to completely pay all bills, including; rent, utilities, insurance, phone bill, food money and prescriptions for the next 6 MONTHS, if not more! Giving him the time and security he needs to fully recover. We (DB & I) will be handling his financials until he is better able to. That includes purchasing and setting up the necessary medical equipment and home essentials he will need to make his recovery as comfortable as possible. I can’t tell you how good it is to see him up and wheeling around his own chair! Throwing the ball for Merlin in the courtyard and critiquing the facilities meal plan he has made the best out of this terrifying situation and moving forward with the best attitude possible. Thank you! For all the help getting him to this point and through his recovery!
Hey guys! UPDATE Time! Andy is doing great. Super fucking tough and now titanium reinforced! He’s healing well from two major surgeries. One to fix his left & right femur and left ankle. The other to fix his upper left arm. Pins, plates and staples in all! Still laughing, joking and making the best of where he’s at. Total show off and star patient, all his nurses love him He’s moving around with assistance and checking off his release boxes like a champ. Still waiting to hear what the next step is but I know he’ll crush it too!
Thank you guys! The support so far is unreal! These funds will go directly to Andy himself. He is looking at months of recovery and time off work. It’s going to be a long process but he got the best friend group to keep him going!
