This past Saturday (Sep/1/2018) my father was in a devastating accident while on a trip out of state. He suffered two shattered ankles, which both received surgery, a fractured jaw, and a fractured sternum which has potentially bruised his heart as well (this is still being monitored so we are not yet positive if this is the case with his heart -- I will update when we know for sure). The car was also totaled.
He is currently stable, but is in a hospital out of state (he is in Colorado, and the rest of us -- myself, my mother, and my younger brother -- are still home in Wisconsin). He will need to be in a rehabilitation facility for his injuries when he returns home to Wisconsin and will need to stay there until he is well enough to return home with us; which will be a large expense for us.
While we will need to pay for the extensive medical bills, will also need to be able to continue to pay for our other expenses -- something that will become significantly more difficult with my father unable to work. These expenses include mortgage and other home-related bills such as electricity, groceries, school supplies and clothes for my younger brother who just turned nine in July, and also a new car as the one he was driving is now a complete loss.
I am also an artist, and would love to give anyone who donates $10.00 or more a free illustration commission to say thank you -- just email me at [email redacted] with the photo you'd like the illustration based off of as well as your mailing address so that I can send the finished piece to you (free of shipping).
Thank you for hearing our story and for any help you are able to provide in this difficult time; it means the world to myself and my family.
