Andy Lay's Medical Fund

$7,850 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 124 people in 36 months
On behalf of Andy Lay's friends and family within the tight-knit hockey community, we are raising money to help pay medical bills for Andy.

On 11/20/15, Andy was playing hockey and went into the boards head first, without having a chance to get his arms out front to brace or cushion the impact. 

Andy was in surgery all day today to repair injuries to multiple vertebrae in his neck.  We are all hoping and praying for Andy's complete recovery, with no sensory and/or movement deficits.  

Your help would be greatly appreciated to support one of our own.....and we are thankful to each and every donator!!

We will post updates on Andy's condition as they become available.

Please keep Andy in your thoughts and prayers...

Memo to all donators:

This GoFundMe account was set up by Jeff & Sharon Worlton. Jeff coached Andy for 2 years in MI, Andy has stayed at our house in WI, and he even brought back a dog to WI for us!! :)

Jeff spoke to Andy's father to let him know about the campaign and inform him that the funds will be directed to him for withdrawal when he is ready.   We will not be withdrawing the funds ourselves. 

Thank You!!

Andy is doing GREAT!! He participates in physical therapy at home 2x/week. He continues to wear his neck brace, and will do so for 3 months. Andy is able to move around on his own without any issues...except for some nerve sensitivity in his left arm. This sensitivity is expected to go away within the next few weeks/months as his body continues to heal itself.
Last Wed, Andy went to a follow-up appt with his doctor. The staples were removed from the back and front of his neck, and his incisions are healing beautifully!
Andy and his family are looking forward to enjoying a relaxing Christmas and New Year's together!

Andy is home!! Andy was discharged from the hospital last night, slept in his own bed, and enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving at home with his family.
Andy has a neck brace to wear, and is following his therapy exercises to stretch and strengthen his muscles.
He wanted me to share his heartfelt thank you's to each and every one of you!
Andy is "offline" from his phone in order to rest, so I'll continue to update as I receive them from Andy or his family.

Both Jeff and I had the chance to speak briefly with Andy today.

He sounded great and was just settling back into his room after a walk! I told him to concentrate on resting, healing, and his therapy.......we will all be waiting when he's ready!
