UPDATES-Coleman family injured in boat explosion

See updates link below and link to family page for ongoing updates

Our lake family suffered the unthinkable this past Mother’s Day weekend. Just after fueling up the boat for a family day on the lake their boat exploded injuring the entire family and resulting in Life Flighting the two oldest children to Grady’s Trauma Center. The youngest son, mother and father sustained minor burns but their oldest daughter and middle son are currently in ICU. The good news is that they all survived and their injuries are not life threatening. But the children have a long road ahead. The oldest daughter suffered the worst of the injuries and will remain sedated a minimum of a week to get her through the worst of the pain. She has been in surgery most of today with skin grafts and scraping the burned tissue. So many people have reached out to help that we decided to set this page up for them.  The road to recovery is going to be long for this family and we know this will help them.
Keep them in your prayers and send positive healing vibes.  They are a family of love and they appreciate the unbelievable outpouring of heartfelt support they have received from all over the country.
This fund is set up by their family and friends. All funds  received will be managed directly by the immediate family to cover the children’s medical bills.
