Larry "Crash" Moskal Fund





My name is Lawrence  Moskal, I am 36.
I desperately need my home made handicap accessible so I can live in my house and be with my 11yr old son while I'm going thru physical & occupational therapy. I also have to pay my "self-pay" portion of my insurance premium to keep my health care, therapy and future home care... In February I will have to start paying COBRA, all of which I do not have the funds to do so. PLEASE HELP

This is my story;

     On August 31 2014 my life changed. I went with some friends on their boat to "Mardi Gras on White Lake" it is a annual party where all the boats dock around a sand bar they have a band everyone has fun it's a big party. I went back to the boat to get some water and food. I swam to the back of the boat and climbed in, when I was done I dove off the back of a boat and hit the bottom step on the ladder of the boat I was swimming under. I broke my neck on impact leaving me paralyzed, from the neck down, and under water. I did the only thing I could, I prayed for God not to take me... Not here, not now, not like this. He allowed me to see underwater, 20' away I seen two girls chest high in water walking in my direction, I prayed He would let me grab their foot and they would find me when they got about 6' from me I passed out from holding my breath. I woke in the hospital 3 days later to find out that I broke my C4,C5&C6 and suffered a contusion to my spinal cord at the C4 level. Leaving me a C5 incomplete quadriplegic. To make things worse my primary insurance company rejected my claim for the first 7 months. I applied for Medicaid but didn't receive it until the day I was discharged from the good intensive inpatient facility where I was recovering exponentially. Medicaid wouldn't pay for desperately needed intensive therapy. I'm living in a nursing home. For now I need someone to help with everyday things I used to take for granted. In spite of everything I have regained so much function but with SCI you get back the most in the first 18 months and I am running out of time.
