Help Dennis Viall Family -Hit & Run

On Friday, September 29th 2017 a 9-1-1 called was made at 6:35 am to the Douglas County dispatch. It reported an unconscious man in the road with severe injuries. 30 minutes prior to this – Dennis Viall was leaving home to catch the community transit on North Pinery Parkway when he was struck by a vehicle, later ruled to be a hit and run. He was left in the road with severe injuries that consisted of multiple skull fractures and severe brain trauma, a shattered leg; all of which required emergency surgery within the hours that followed.
Despite hopes and continued efforts – his condition has not progressed in a positive direction. Dennis remains in a coma and to add to the list of adversities the family will face, he recently had a stroke which left the medical team skeptical that his speech and comprehension would not be affected. He has not shown signs of awakening and, as you can imagine, this is only the beginning of a very long road of recovery for Dennis and his family. The medical estimate is a minimum of one year at a rehab facility to try and regain back what he was robbed of.
Dennis is a loving father to 13-year-old Noah Christopher and an adoring husband to his wife, Felicia. Both of whom are his entire world. As you can imagine this family is struggling to cope with these life altering events. Felicia herself struggles with Cystic Fibrosis, symptoms of which are also debilitating and require frequent treatments. Managing her own health on top of Dennis' fight for life will be that much more difficult without the incredible support he has always provided. With the uncertainty of Dennis' prognosis and Felicia's own health this family has more hardship than they can endure alone.
By donating to this gofundme you will be helping Felicia and Noah stay afloat and give them the ability to focus on Dennis until a long term plan can be implemented.  This money will help them with the following expenses:
     -Medical Bills
     -Utilities and other household expenses
Felicia will be the only one given access to the funds from this fundraiser.

We, William and Dana Brereton, have started this gofundme on behalf of Dennis, Felicia and Noah because of a friendship that began when Dennis started helping us the beginning of this year while William was in the hospital. He was such a blessing! He was always willing to lend a hand and such a joyful person to be around. We quickly became good friends with the whole family. All three helped us tirelessly pack for our recent move to South Carolina.  It was only a few days after we arrived in SC that we heard from Felicia what had happened to Dennis.  Our hearts are broken and we feel powerless in the graviety of the situation, but our desire is to make sure Felicia and Noah have what they need during this time and that Dennis has all the support and care he requires.

Please join us, come together and help this family focus on Dennis’ recovery by helping them have financial ease in this upset and a warrior community of prayer and Hope.

Life can change in the blink of an eye – live and love each day that you get with your loved ones!
