On Wednesday, April 30th my son Eli was injured in a motorcycle accident. He was riding in the back yard when he lost control and hit a tree crushing his face. He was transported to the hospital in Georgetown, TX with severe facial trauma. Doctors were unable to stop the bleeding from his sinus cavity and therefore transported him by ambulance to the Trauma Center in Round Rock, TX. After several CAT scans and X-rays we were told by the trauma specialists that lower orbit bone structures (eye-socket bones) were fractured, his cheek bones were fractured with the most damage to the left side of his face, his sinuses were crushed, two of his front teeth and one back tooth were damaged, his nose was broken. He sustained several lacerations; a laceration down the bridge of his nose, on the side of his nose and a laceration in his sinus cavity. The Trauma Doctors called in a Maxillofacial Surgeon to access the damage in his face and to stop the bleeding. It will be a long road to recovery for my son and eventually he will need further surgery to repair his sinuses.
Eli is an active 18 year old that loves life and lives life to the fullest. When he is not working or attending school, he is fishing and hunting or hanging out with his friends. He has been an Officer for FFA at East View High School the past three years and his dream is to attend college this fall to become a Game Warden.
Eli has no medical insurance and is in need of support to help pay the countless medical bills to help him heal and recover from the injuries that he sustained. Your support, donations, and prayers are greatly appreciated. All funds will go directly to his medical bills; any funds left over will go towards a scholarship at East View High School.
