Medical Bills & Recovery for James

James McKinney was in a water accident while floating down Guadalupe river on Saturday 7/29/17. He was unknowingly struck by a forceful object between the eyes. James was rushed to a local hospital by two great friends and then transported to Saint David's Medical Center in South Austin (901 West Ben White, Austin, TX 78704) by an ambulance. James is suffering from the life-threatening frontal face bone fractures and demolished sinuses. He will undergo a 3 to 5 hour cranial surgery early this morning 7/31/17.

James was 4 days away from receiving health insurance through his new employer. Due to the accident timing, the significant procedures, EMS transportation, and ICU accommodations will not be covered under health insurance. This GoFund me page has been created to provide assistance for James through this time.

Prayers are needed for a successful surgery and speedy recovered for James. Any donations will go directly to his large medical bills and expenses during his recovery time while unemployed.

Thank you so much for your consideration in helping us get our James back to his happy, outgoing self.
