Thomas Johnson's Medical Fund

On Monday, June 26, my dad Thomas Johnson was involved in a serious motor vehicle accident 17 miles north of his home in Cheyenne, Wyoming.  A negligent oncoming driver crossed the center line, struck Thomas, forced him off the road and into a roll.  Had he not been wearing his seatbelt, he likely would have lost his life.  He was air lifted to the Cheyenne Regional Medical Center where he was diagnosed with two crushed neck vertebrae, three fractured thoracic vertebrae, and five fractured ribs.  He suffered numerous cuts and abrasions that were sutured.  Since the accident, he has fought through neck surgery and constant pain.  Eight days later he is preparing to transition into the rehabilitation center at the hospital where he likely will spend two weeks.  He will be in physical therapy multiple times per week and will require his family and possible home health to be with him daily over the next three months as he recovers.  

He will have medical and living expenses beyond what insurance will ever cover and will be unable to work for at least the next three months.  His work vehicle was totaled in the accident along with a utility trailer. 

We are asking you to consider helping Thomas get on his feet and stay on his feet.  During his hospitalization, he has received numerous calls, texts, cards, visits, and offers to help.  This is a concrete way that you could help. Thomas's road ahead is long and very expensive.  Supporting Thomas with whatever you can give will help relieve the financial burden and would be greatly appreciated.  It is an invitation...not an obligation. Thomas and his family can focus on his rehab and getting healthy and strong.
