Bobby's Spinal Cord Injury

On August 3, 2018, we were involved in an auto accident in a U-Haul pick up truck on Hwy 515 in Ellijay, GA. We recently moved to GA from Florida and half of our furnishings are in storage; therefore, we rented the truck to bring some things to our new house which we were only in 1 week before the accident.  As we proceeded home we were struck by a car traveling at a high rate of speed on Bobby's side of the truck.  He was airlifted to Kennestone Hospital in Marietta, GA  and was admitted in critical condition with a broken neck. He had emergency surgery late that night into the following morning to repair a hematoma on his spinal cord. Unfortunately, he is paralyzed from his chest down and had surgery #2 on August 10, 2018 to actually repair his neck injury with plates and screws.As of today, we are still in the ICU unit with no date yet as to any rehab as we have no prognosis as to whether he will regain use of his arms and legs.  Due to being out of work and the mounting costs of the hospital bills, I am respectively asking for you to donate anything you can to assist me in paying our monthly bills.  I haven't even begun to think about what our insurance will not pay for the hospital bills.  I need your assistance as soon as possible. 

Please see a photo of Bobby pre-accident and post accident.  I want to see his beautiful face again and be as happy as he was!

Thank you for helping us at such a horrible time in our life!32200492_1534451331108150_r.jpeg32200492_153445208189332_r.jpeg
