Trystin Olive's Medical Fund

On December 9th, 2012, multiple lives were changed forever due to a terrible accident here in Colorado Springs.

My nephew Trystin is the child in this incident.  Trystin remains at Childrens Hospital in the ICU battling multiple burn and injuries associated with this freak explosion.  This accident will forever change the life of Trystin, his immediate family, as well as his father who was also critically injured.

Trystins mother is a hard working single mom to 3 kids.  Trystin is the youngest, and 2 other daughters as well.  At this time, the financial battle due to medical bills, and recovery costs is starting to come forth.  This will be a very long term recovery, and not something that most families could handle on their own.

The expenses for medical, and living for my sister Kara and her family are going to be hard for her to cover as she will need to spend an indefinite amount of time bedside with her child to monitor his progress and comfort Trystin through this time.

I am making this page without her knowledge, but with the guidance and advice of multiple family members and associates.  We are trying to raise funds to cover what we can for the family.  Living expenses, unexpected expenses, medical expenses, and holiday expenses for the 2 girls during this time.

All fund received will be managed and handled by my Father.  We as a family are doing whatever we can financially to cover things at this point, but as im sure some can appreciate, finances only go so far.

Wells Fargo has also been gracious enough to open a nationwide donation account.  Any cash deposits can be made in ANY Wells Fargo branch under "The Trystin Fund"

It would mean the world to my family, and to Trystin anything that anyone can do to help.  Its one thing to have to watch and adult suffer with such debilitating injuries, but watching a helpless child fight like this is terrible.  The road to recovery is long-

Thank you for reading.  If nothing else, please keep Trystin as well as his father in your thoughts and prayers as they begin the long road to recovery.

Thank you for your time
