A Friend In Need

Hello my name is Jimmy I am asking for people's help with an unfortunate situation. A fellow friend that I have work with for years is in a rough spot right now in his life, he was riding on his motorcycle early in the morning around 2 a.m. While he was riding he came across a patch of water produced by some sprinklers on the road. By the time he noticed the water it was to late and hydroplained and slammed into the gaurd rail. He sustained massive injury to his right arm, broke his back and his legs, he also may never have full strength back on his right arm. He works 2 jobs as a waiter and also works in Staten island on the ship yards. Unfortunately due to the crash he has a small chance at working back at the ship yard. And being that is the main money maker for him he will be in rough time once he gets out of the hospital. He lives with his girlfriend Danielle and his mother who has dementia. So with this all going on I would like to ask everyone if you can or not please help us out, we are trying to raise money so he can pay for all his bills, while his girlfriend is out trying to sustain it all. The picture that u see is John and his mother spending time together. Anything helps. Thank you.
