Carter Viss Recovery Funds

Carter was critically injured when a boat hit him while he was out diving with a friend near Palm Beach on Thanksgiving day. He lost an arm, broke both of his legs, broke his other wrist, and has several lacerations. He’s incredibly strong, but he has a very long road to recovery. We are unsure about what all the expenses will look like, but since our family lives in Denver and Carter is in Palm Beach we at least know that travel expenses will pile up. All other funds we receive will go directly to Carter in one way or another whether it be medical expenses, food, housing, etc. We appreciate all of your donations and are incredibly thankful for all the support we’ve received. EDIT: We reached our original goal of $20,000 within the first 48 hours of posting which is unbelievable. My family can’t even describe how thankful we are to everyone for the support. People have been saying we should set a higher goal, so we did. We know Carter’s expenses are going to be high, we just have no idea how high right now. Again, every cent will go towards Carter’s recovery and the rehab process. Thank you all so much.
