Prosthetic Legs & Medical Expenses

I want to raise money to help my brother with the expense for prosthetic legs, medical expenses, and loss of wages.

Jay was in a terrible auto accident 1/26 and has lost both legs below the knee.  He remains in good spirits and actually saved his own life after the accident. He went to sleep at the wheel and hit a guard rail which went all the way through the car from the front all the way through both seats and to the back door of the vehicle. The only thing that saved his life and the steel going through his body is that when he hit the guard rail the impact must have lifted him up enough for the steel railing to slide between his butt and the seat as he said that he felt the steel go by under him. He had the presence of mind to notice that he did not have part of his right leg, took off his belt and made a tourniquet and then called 911. He credits this action to his Eagle Scout training and being a former Marine.
