Devon Charters' Fight for Life

Created April 1, 2018
On March 22nd 2018, 21 year old Devon William Charters’ life was changed forever.  While a friend was cleaning his gun, it discharged, ricocheted off a table and hit Devon.  It entered the left side of his head and is permanently lodged on the right side of his brain.  Devon was rushed, by ambulance, to the ER, and is still in ICU.  Devon has received multiple emergency surgeries up to this point to stabilize his condition.  He has been under constant sedation and only has movement on the left side of his body.  Devon may have to be moved to a specialized neurological hospital in Indianapolis, soon, to further his recovery.  Although his condition has improved since the accident, doctors are unsure of his brain injuries and how this will affect the rest of his life. 

 ‘Family first’ is a motto that Devon lives by.  He is a proud father to 1 ½ year old Dominic, who is his world.  He is a devoted father, son, grandson, brother and uncle.  He is involved in the day to day lives of his entire family.  Devon is the one who always has a smile on his face and something nice to say.  He visits his grandparents every day to help out with any needs they have.  One of the joys in his life is spending time with his niece and nephew, who he treats like his own children.  Devon is a hard worker.  He is employed by Service Plastics, here in Fort Wayne.  He was recently initiated into the Freemasons, achieved well in school, is a brown belt in Judo, and is very proud of these accomplishments.  Devon has always been a fighter, and now he is fighting for his life.

Nothing could prepare us for this tragic event.  Because of the extent of the medical care he has received, will continue to need, and the unknown expenses involved, we are asking for your help.  Unfortunately, Devon did not have medical insurance at the time of his accident.  It is our wish that this will not cause a future burden on Devon and Dominic.  All donations will go directly to a fund to pay for all medical expenses incurred and to the care of Dominic.  No donation is too small and every bit will help.  Thank you for all of your kind words, prayers and support.  We appreciate your willingness to help in this time of need.  Thank you and God bless.

The family of Devon William Charters

From Samara:

He doesn’t move his right side and has no strength to hold up his head and today he has been pushing with his left arm to try to roll onto his right which keeps leading to him faceplanting into the bedrail on his right side then struggles to lift his head back up....so he did this.... and I went to the right side of his bed and helped him get his head back up to his pillow and just kinda left my hand under his right cheek he was facing me one eye open and looked right at me so I said I’ll stand right here just relax I love you Devon and about 15-20 seconds later I was just leaning over with my hand under his cheek and his left arm came up and around my shoulder and pulled me in. Mom says trying to pin me I believe he was hugging me maybe I’m just wishful thinking but I hugged him anyway and looked up and nurses eyes were watering she said that was totally a hug. It made everything stop hurting for a second
