Marine Veteran in Critical Condition


Mike, a Marine Veteran, was hit by a speeding car that ran a red light, while on his way to work on December 23rd.  He is in critical condition and has been unconscious since the accident.  This brave young man serviced our country, has 3 tours in Afghanistan and Iraq under his belt and came home alive.  He is now fighting for his life because of a persons' carelessness.  Mike is the sole provider for his family.   His injuries are intensive and healing will be long.  Injuries include internal bleeding, damage to bowels, broken arm, both legs, hip, concussion, both lungs are collapsed with contusions.  He survived his first surgery to set and fix broken parts with more surgeries to come. 

Mike's wife is stranded at the hospital 30 minutes away from their home without a car.  They have two dogs that are at home.  One dog, Jinx has cancer, had a leg remove and is on expensive medication. The medical and legal fees will be extensive along with daily living expenses. 
Mike and his wife, Michelle are 2,000 miles away from any family and friends.  So they have no immediate support at this time.  

Mike and Michelle are in need of immediately and long term financial support.  She will need to stay close to him and yet have transportation to get home to take care of their babies/dogs.
