Pat Jr's Recovery

Hello this is Patricks dad, I asked my sister if I could come and edit this a bit now that we have reached our initial start up goal of $10,000.  Thank you so much for all your donations!!

Since we have met our goal I have increased the goal to $20,000 because my ultimate goal is to get as much for a vehicle as possible for transportation which I know I will need! I'm not sure what this whole injury will end up costing in the end with medical bills, home modifications, electric wheelchair and whatever else. That's in Gods hands! Hopefully insurance and lots of other programs we are applying for will take a big chunk out of these costs. Not looking for people who donated to give more, this is just for others who joined later looking to contribute to Patricks cause! Thanks again for all your support and prayers!

Patrick's Story (by his Aunt Sylvia)

On June 28th, 2014 my nephew broke his neck by diving into a pool.  He broke his C5 and C6.  He is able to talk and has normal brain function (thank GOD) but he cannot use his arms, hands or legs.

Patrick has played football since he was 5 and my brother Pat has been a coach to him and the other players.  We are hoping that his passion for the sport will give him the fight he needs to regain use of his limbs.

This tragedy is going to have a huge financial impact on the family.  Anything you can donate towards his care is appreciated.

Thank you all..
