Ben Wrzesinski

On Monday January 19th Ben was kicked in the face by a horse & sustained severe facial injuries, including fractured skull, shattered jaw, sinuses, cheek bones, eye sockets & nose. He was life flighted to Seattle's Harborview Medical Center to be treated for his injuries and underwent a 6 hour surgery on Tuesday January 20th to repair some of the damage.

The next surgery will be scheduled in approximately two weeks & further surgeries scheduled after that based on what is able to be repaired then.  That being said, this will require an extensive amount of time away from home and work for both Ben and Kirsten.  As family and friends of these great people, we are launching this campaign to help not only emotionally but financially as well.  Any and all contributions are greatly appreciated as it will allow Ben and his family to recover with less stress of the financial burden created by such a terrible accident.

He has a long road of recovery ahead of him, but he is thankful to be alive!  As the creators of this fundraiser we want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
