As many of you may know the Faulconer family has taken a very hard hit when Dad/Husband/Grandpa David had a terrible accident.
While cleaning the second story gutters of the family home...he fell off of a ladder and in the fall, broke his neck, his back in numerous places, his spleen, shattered his jaw, punctured both of his lungs and various other smaller injuries.
As you can imagine he is paralyzed and suffers numerous medical problems such as requiring weekly wound care treatment, therapy, extensive medical supplies and someone to care for him 24/7 as he is unable to do so for himself.
This has created a considerable financial burden and the family is suffering and struggling in order to keep food on the table and pay the bills. The unpaid medical bills are in excess of $60,000 and climbing weekly and the family is in danger of losing their home and being unable to care for him.
David was the breadwinner of the family. He always made sure his family was well taken care of and the stress of him being unable to do that anymore has him feeling very depressed and upset. He can no longer work due to his injuries and has blamed himself for the financial burden and debt incurred.
They hope to lift his spirits and show him they can get through this and things will right themselves so he can just focus on healing, but it is getting more and more difficult to stay positive... when anything arises financially it is devastating. (The central air conditioning went out most recently).
We are praying the family will be able to keep their home and get him back to living life.
They have exhausted all of their savings due to this unfortunate crisis and all money coming in is not enough to cover the high costs involved and the debts already accrued. Most goes to his ongoing care and equipment/supplies.
They have been often forced to choose between his necessary medical care and paying normal household expenses.
I would like to find them some help, even if it is just a small amount so they can feel ok to go to the grocery store, or to put towards the mortgage before they end up homeless and unable to care for him.
even a single dollar would be a blessing and would help tremendously as it is hard to even scrape by for the little things.
We also ask for your prayers. Prayers for the family and prayers for his progress in healing,
Thank you for taking the time to read this. We appreciate any help and/or positivity/prayers.
