Chase Simmons and family

PFC Chase Simmons was in a major car accident in December of 2015 while home for Christmas from active duty.
UPDATE: Chase is now in Hospice and is not expected to make it. His brain is shutting down according to his doctors. His father, Keith, is STILL going to work everyday as the family cannot afford for him to take the time off.  The family has so many bills to pay and he can't get paid time off to be where he should be, at his son's bedside, during his last days.

So many thanks go to all of you who continue to support this family. They want to give him a full military funeral which will be costly but they feel it important to send their son to heaven in this manner. So now, we look to the kind hearted people of the world to help with funeral expenses. A tragic truth for such an amazing family. God bless you.

There have been comments made that the military is paying for EVERYTHING, including a full military sendoff. This is simply not true. Please check your facts first and please stop posting comments to this campaign that reflect that belief.

Below is how the campaign started...
Chase is an amazing person who devoted his life to helping others. His parents haven’t left his side since the accident and continue to fight alongside him. Chase will make it home but the Simmons need our help. Any donations will go to help with:

·      Medical bills

·      An access van to transport Chase

·      Totally remodeling their home to fit Chase’s needs

·      Financial support to help the family focus solely on Chase’s recovery

Give what you can from your heart. Vicki always tells me it’s not about the money but the bills are piling up. Let’s help the Simmons focus on supporting the miracle that is Chase's recovery and not on what it costs. Thank you all in advance for your help and generosity.
