Brody Burnell's recovery

Brody was involved in a plane crash on August 1st, 2017. He's going to need a lot of help and time in the hospital to reach the recovery we all want to see. I want to challenge our Phoenix community, or community in general. Let's do this. Let's raise $5,000 to help the family with surgery expenses and medical bills. Let's sacrifice our luxury for someone in need. We can do this. From what I've seen in 24 hours I know this is possible and I know we can bless this family.

(August 3rd)

Hello, my name is Ross Herbert. I am from Phoenix, Arizona. Brody's been one of my best friends for close to 5 years now. Most people believe that we are actually brothers. Yesterday on August 2nd I created this GoFundMe to hopefully releive some of the financial burden that will follow his long recovery process. After seeing that just within the first day of him being in the hospital three surgeries were done and that seems to only be the beginning. For the time being Brody is in a medically induced coma to allow his body to rest and prepare for further operation. The last thing that we want his family to worry about is the cost of all this, so I will do everything I can to make the financial part of this process as easy as possible when the time comes. I don't know a lot about medical terms or definitions, but I do know that we will be using any money donated to pay for as much of these medical costs as we can. I don’t know when they will begin to need that money but it will all be given to Brody’s dad Steve when the time comes to assist with any costs of Brody’s recovery.
