 BOWLING GREEN, KY
Our brother needs your help!  BGFD Firefighter Eric Smith "Smitty" was involved in a skiing accident a few days ago in West Virginia and was flown to a Charleston hospital where he is currently located.  A little background on Eric.  He is an amazing person who has served his country in the Marines and currently serving his community as a City of Bowling Green Firefighter.  He has a wife and young boy with another baby on the way! He has spent his life taking care of and protecting everyone else.  Now he needs our help!  He has sustained a major spinal injury. We are praying and hoping that this is temporary.  He will be flown to Atlanta hopefully in a week to Shepards Rehab where will will start his recovery.  The costs of life flights for him, travel and hotels for family and several other medical expenses will be overwhelming. Please help us out to offset some if not all of this!! Please share with everyone you know! Prayers too!
