Bruce Henry Medical Recovery

This is my dad, Bruce Henry. He is one of the kindest, most gentle people you could ever hope to meet. He was driving home late from work last night (12/19/17), which is very typical as he is in commissioned retail sales. On his way home, he hit an icy patch, and wrecked his truck. He suffered a dislocated/broken (nearly shattered) hip, broken hand and several other injuries. He was lying in the mud in a ditch for nearly an hour calling for help before a truck also hit an icy patch and spun out, shining thier lights on him. They were able to call for help and get him to the hospital. Had they not spun out, who knows how long he would have been lying there helpless. He is going in for reconstructive hip surgery tomorrow (12/21/17) to hopefully pin him back together. My dad is facing several mountains in the coming months. Physically as he recovers, financially as he has to figure out how to pay for all of these bills, a new car, and being out of work for at least a couple months if not several. He is going to have to figure out how to walk again, and get his life back. On top of all of the other hurdles in front of him, my parents will have to figure out how to afford going to my brothers wedding next June in North Carolina. Any money you could donate towards helping my dad and our family put back the pieces from this devastating event would be greatly appreciated. My sister and I will be around as much as possible to lend a hand, but my two brothers who are on active duty service with the Marine Corps won't even be able to see him for several months. Thank you in advance for your help, we truly appreciate the generosity.
