Erik Lighthall and Family Support Fund

Erik Lighthall had a bad accident in the early morning hours on July 5, 2014. He took a tumble down the stairs at his home in Elkhorn, NE and suffered a traumatic brain injury.  He was taken to the Nebraska Medical Center and had emergency surgery to relieve the swelling and pressure in his brain.  He has been in intensive care ever since surgery.  The hope is to get him stable and transferred to the Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital in Lincoln, NE so he can begin the slow road to recovery.  Erik has been married to his wife Maria for ten years this September and they have three young children aged 7, 6, and 2.  You can read more about Erik's condition here:

Any monetary donation you give will help defray the cost of medical bills, medical transportation, rehabilitation, and help support the Lighthalls while Erik continues in the fight of his life.  Thank you for your support!
