Help Eddie get the medical care he needs

On Friday, December 13, 2013 Eddie "went missing" and it wasn't until Sunday, December 15, 2013 that Search and Rescue teams found him. Eddie had fallen down a 500 foot cliff and spent two days in the severe Tennessee weather.
As a result of his ordeal he is suffering from kidney issues, dehydration, pneumonia, severe frostbite of toes, feet, hands, fingers and lips. He is disoriented and they are finding more and more medical issues and complications.
Eddie is a carpenter and financial provider for the family so you can imagine what this is doing to the family financially and they do not have medical insurance due to finances.
Bills are piling up, and as of today Thursday, December 19, 2013 they have been informed the hospital is planning on releasing him tomorrow because they have no insurance!
The family has been told the hospital will not transfer him to a rehab facility because there is no insurance and they will not be sending him home with antibiotics or home care for the very same reason.
There is no way to care for Eddie at home due to his condition: he can't walk due to the severe frostbite, pneumonia and his confused incoherent state.
Please donate whatever you feel you can to help this family out and help us get Eddie the medical care he so desperately needs.
