12788391_1480927464.1825_funddescriptionn September 11, 2014 Adam Palmer was brutally attacked at his residence, by four assailants. Adam attempted to fight them off, but was overwhelmed by his assailants, receiving multiple to his head and body. In a last effort to kill Adam, using their pistols and a piece of firewood,his assailants administered several, near fatal blows to the right side of his head.

Most assuredly, his assailants would have finished the deed, but for a chance visit from a friend. The attack, was fortunately interrupted, when a friend of Adam's just happen to pull into his driveway at that very moment. As the assailants fled and left Adam for dead, his friend quickly discovered him near unconsciousness and severely bleeding from his right ear. He immediately called 911 and Adam was rushed to Baylor medical center. Upon his arrival at the emergency room Adam was immediately placed in an induced coma due to the serve trauma tonhis body and skull. He spent several days in the ICU. Doctors brought him out of the induced coma in order to further access the damage, which was extensive.

Adam's injuries sustained from the attack include four fractures on the left and right temporal lobe, a ruptured ear canal, 90% hearing loss in the right ear, a fractured C1 vertebra, torn ligaments in right side of his neck and hairline fractures to left wrist.

Astonishley, Adam only spent a few days more in the hospital! Due to his lack of insurance, he was released to his own care and confined to bed rest...for the next four months. Immediately following his release, Adam struggled with remembering his friends and worse, his own families' faces. Over the next four months, Adam had to learn how to do everything again. Walk, talk, the use of his hands etc. He also had to regain, not only the memory of the attack, but memories of his entire life.

His quality of life has drastically changed as a result of this horrific attack. Adam is still suffering physically and mentally as a direct result of his injuries, sustained during the attack. Adam continues to experience short and long term memory loss as well as numerous other medical complications and has recently been diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder.

Adam has lost other sources of income, due to his injuries. His medical bills have been accumulating to the point, Adam is now facing serious financial repercussions and needs our help. His medical bills now total $50,000. Please donate anything you can, every little bit helps and will be greatly appreciated
