Adam's Medical Costs

My name is Adam Rohrbough. On December 9th, 2015 I was on my lunch hour and took a drag from my vaporizer and the battery exploded. See pictures below. It turned the vapor pen into a projectile that collided with my mouth. My upper palet was broke and hanging on only by the roof of my mouth. For sometime they thought I would not be able to keep my gums and possibly lose all four top teeth as well as the four on the bottom. My bottom lip was split and my teeth were chipped. Through alot of trial and error I have been able to keep my teeth but this road is far from over.

I am self employed and own a tree service. We opened it two years ago. This accident was a real set back as I have a young family made up of two boys and my wife. The medical costs are not realistic at this time to pay back. Although my wife and I were lucky enough to qualify for CARECREDIT to get the immediate care I needed - we are in $15,000.00 dollars worthe of debt now due to medical expenses and in turn the CARECREDIT. The doctors  including oral surgeon and root canal specialist have exhausted all the credit to get my mouth in order. They only gave us the option of 6 months with no interest via CARECREDIT. If we do not pay the balance $15,000.00 back to CARECREDIT by June 9th , 2016 interest will sky rocket , making it even more unimaginable to pay back, and our credit will be ruined.

If I can raise the funds to pay off these medical bills it would mean the world to me. I have dreams of buying a house, sending my children to college, and growing my business. If my credit along with my wifes is ruined it could take us quite a while to recover and all of our dreams will be put on hold for quite a few years.

I will be extremely grateful if this goal can be met and it would mean the world to my family and I.
