Clay Bloodworth Hospital Bills
Early Thursday morning, our good friend, classmate, and filmmaker Clay Bloodworth was involved in a serious head-on collision. He is currently in the hospital, luckily having avoided any serious brain damage, but suffering from several broken bones from his ribs to his legs. His family is with him in the hospital now, and he is surrounded by an incredible amount of love and support from his friends, his school, and his communities. He is expected to make a full recovery, however he will be in the ICU for at least another week, and afterwards have to go through months of rehabilitation. We are hoping to raise money to help Clay's family with the hospital and rehabilitation bills, as well as anything to help get Clay back to his beloved University of North Carolina School of the Arts, so he can continue his education and career as a filmmaker as soon as possible. Clay is one of the most passionate, loving, and supportive people we have ever met, and he is loved by everyone he meets. We are setting our goal at $10,000 as an estimate, although any amount will help. Thank you so much in advance.+ Read More
BIG NEWS TODAY! Clay gets to come home today--3 days early! The house is ready--garage is cleared for him to get out of the car, walker is ready, shower is ready, his room is ready! Clay is so ready for his own bed. He's been in a hospital bed since August 30--almost 2 months! Outpatient therapy here we come, and on the way back to school--one day at a time. This new phase begins today!
Yesterday was a major milestone! Clay was able to get rid of the leg brace, and wear TWO shoes!
Clay was transferred today to the West Florida Rehabilitation Institute. This is an Acute Intensive Rehab facility, where Clay will receive 3 hours per day of physical and occupational therapy, as well as orthopedic medical follow-up.
Clay arrived at the Select Specialty Hospital in Pensacola Wednesday evening, September 26, 2018, and is doing amazingly well. At this hospital they will monitor his abdomen wound as well as all of his other injuries, and get him ready to go to the full-blown rehab hospital at West Florida. The staff at Select are already telling us how positive they are about Clay's progress! The goal is to get him into West Florida rehab as soon as possible, where he will get 3 hours of physical and occupational therapy every day. All of your donations covered the massively expensive ambulance ride this week from North Carolina to Florida, and as you can imagine the expenses continue to add up. Stacey and I cannot thank you enough for your support.
