Medical Bills & Living Expense

Hi, my name is Jeanna Getchell.  On July 18th my son, Greg Getchell who is 29 years old, suffered a terrible accident, where he fell straight back onto his head hitting the backside onto cobblestone.  He suffered a traumatic brain injury, and skull fracture.  He spent several days in ICU in Mass General in Boston. He was intebated and had to have a hole drilled into his skull to prevent and monitor the pressure in his head.  After his hospital stay he went onto Rehab were his Neuro doctor told him he would have anywhere from 6 months to a year recovery.  Greg recently got out of the Navy after serving 8 years.  His insurance is expiring this month, in August. This will leave him with astronmical hospital bills as well as follow up rehab.  He is unable to work for a long time leaving him with car payments, insurance, as well as his loans and living expenses.  He is unable to drive right now but loves his car and would love to be able to hang onto it for when he is well again.  He suffers from bad headaches on a daily basis and fatigue and loss of smell.  Greg has a lot of stress just trying to get better and able to work once again. He is an outgoing person and is loved by all who meet him.  He is sweet and sincere and will do anything to help out a friend or family member.  Greg is wondering how he will afford to pay everything.  We need help.  I would appreciate any donations.   Thank you,
                                                                Sincerely, Jeanna Getchell
