Alex Escobar Recovery

Early Saturday morning my best friends' (Wendy Ward) son Alex was involved in a motorcycle accident.  He was pinned against a guard rail and needed an emergency amputation of his left leg from the knee down, on scene.  He was the taken via flight for life to Froedert Trauma Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  Alex will remain there for at least a couple of weeks to undergo rehabilitation and get acclimated to life in this new place.  Both Alex and Wendy will need financial support to cover his immediate needs (insurance co-pays, existing bills, and incidentals traveling back and forth to Milwaukee).  Anything will help.  This has been devastating for them both and we are hoping this will help to ease financial worries so that he can begin a healthy and stress-free recovery.  Everyday we are learning, more and more, just how fragile life is and how to be thankful for every moment and breath we take.  Thank you for your generosity and support.
