Eastep/McCalvin vs drunk driver

On Tuesday Sept 26 at around 6:30am, Steven Eastep, Jordan Mccalvin, and 2 others were on their way to work when a drunk driver pulled out in front of them. They t-boned the drunk driver and then hit a light pole head on. At this time the drunk driver is presumed to be uninsured. The injuries sustained are numerous.  Steven suffered a broken nose, a broken eye socket, 2 broken ribs, a bruised lung, damage to his rotator cuff, and 2 broken bones in his wrist. Jordan suffered a broken femur and 2 broken ribs. Steven was released from the hospital late tuesday night. He had reconstructive surgery on his nose on Tuesday 10/03. The surgery was not successful, and he may have to have his nose rebroken and another rhinoplasty performed in 6 months.  He is scheduled to have surgery on his wrist to reset the bones and place pins on Monday 10/09.  He will have many follow ups with the plastic surgery Dr, the orthopedic Dr, and the eye Dr. Jordan was released from the hospital on Monday 10/02. He was initially put in traction and then later had surgery to put a rod in his leg.  He also developed a blood clot in his lung while in the hospital. He will have many follow ups with the orthopedic Dr and rehab/therapy. He will also have to have his blood monitored frequently because he is receiving blood thinner for his blood clot.  Both guys will be put of work for approximately 4 to 8 months.

-Steven is married.  He and his wife have 2 children and he is the sole provider for his family.
-Jordan is engaged and they have 3 boys, ages 3, 1, and 1 1/2 months old. He is the sole provider for his family.

The other 2 men involved have their current needs met, so we have made some changes to the fundraiser.  

We are asking for donations to help supplement the lost income for these 2 families over the coming months. We also need funds for gas, parking, and food for the numerous trips to the drs. Our guys have lost their incomes and their health. We don't want the drunk driver to take anything else from us. Please help our families stay afloat during this difficult time. Thank you.
