Craig Donnelly's Medical Fund

Donation protected
Craig Donnelly is an avid runner and personal trainer in Omaha, NE. On Wednesday, April 27th 2016, just 4 days after his 31st birthday, Craig went for a run through Standing Bear Lake. As he was heading towards the trailhead on 144th just north of Fort, Craig had an epileptic seizure and fell backwards, losing consciousness and causing severe damage to his skull.
3 truly amazing people stopped to call 911 and to help Craig, one of them even contacting Craig's wife who insisted he wear a medical bracelet.
Craig was transported by ambulance to Immanuel Hospital where he underwent emergency surgery and doctors had to remove his left cerebellum due to the extensive damage to his skull and brain. 
As of this posting on 5/8/2016, Craig remains in the ICU. Doctors and staff are hoping to move him to the rehabilitation section of the hospital this week. He is awake and interactive, but still on a feeding tube and unable to walk. Doctors have yet to determine full impact. 
Being self-employed causes many challenges in this situation; fortunately Brandi is employed fulll-time at Athleta in Village Pointe. While Craig and Brandi do have medical insurance coverage, they are losing income with Craig unable to work and with him being in the ICU for potentially 2 weeks and many more weeks in rehab, the medical bills are adding up quickly. 
The Donnelly's will use all money raised for medical bills and support for Craig's future medical needs. Your financial support will help them to turn their focus and energy on healing and making sure that Craig gets the medical support he needs. 
Thank you for considering a donation to Craig's medical fund, it is truly appreciated.
