Read & VaNae Flake Need Your Help

Last week, Read Flake, father of 6, was in a traumatic accident resulting in severe neck, spine and back injuries.  He underwent multiple surgeries to reconstruct a shattered pelvis, fuse vertebrae and stabilize the spine. As this happened while on family vacation, Read is recovering in a hospital hundreds of miles from home and family. He remains upbeat and feels extremely fortunate to be spared from death and paralysis, but faces a long road to recovery, including learning to walk again.

While this situation alone would be devastating, Read provides for his family by managing two small businesses. To sacrifice for these young businesses, he recently renewed health insurance for his kids, but not himself. Now they are facing hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical bills. To say their situation is desperate is an understatement. Anyone who knows Read, VaNae and their 6 wonderful kids knows what a blessing they've been to others through their kindness and generosity. If you can help ease the crushing financial burdens of this hardworking family in any small way, we urge you to do so. No gift is too small, and your support means so much during this challenging time. 100% of proceeds will be used to cover medical care expenses.

Thanks for being a part of #TeamRead and supporting Read and VaNae Flake!!
