Helping Devon, Dayna, Baby Kainen

Hello All!

Just for a little background, Dayna is 22, Devon is 21, and baby Kainen is 2 months old! On October 2nd (Devon's birthday), Dayna & Devon were headed to dinner when another driver ran a stop sign and t-boned them. Dayna was pregnant with there child at the time and was I injured. Devon wasn't so lucky. He sustained a Traumatic Brain Injury, TWO collapsed lungs, and he broke his neck.

Devon was transported by life flight to Sioux Falls, SD where he stayed in ICU for 3 weeks. Dayna was by his side the entire time NEVER leaving him. They were then transferred to Madonna Rehab Hospital in Lincoln, NE where he continues to engage in aggressive rehabilitation.

Dayna delivered their baby, Kainen, three weeks early on January 21st. Of course, Devon couldn't be there due to his injuries. Devon is unable to communicate verbally to Dayna which has been very difficult especially having a new born son together.

Devon has been in Lincoln, NE since November and they are originally from South Dakota/Minnesota area which is a 4 1/2 hour drive.

Dayna is AMAZING! She continues to be by his side as many days of the week as she can be when she isn't at school. Between caring for Devon, caring for Kainen, finishing school in MN to become a radiology tech, and the travel time there is no time to work right now.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE help this amazing family out so they can get through this extremely difficult time! Thank you all for your love and support for these wonderful people!
