Chad Hockaday Medical Recovery

It has been a rough several days.....For those who haven't been informed, Chad was involved in a bad motorcycle accident on Sunday, July 16, 2017. Thankfully he always wears a spinal guard and helmet, without this protective gear he most likely would not be with us right now.

Chad was brought into the ER with a left collapsed lung, bruising surrounding the heart, several broken bones and 3rd degree road rash burns to most of his upper body and parts of his legs. He was required to remain on a ventilator for the first 2-3 days due this his unstable condition. We are looking for assistance to help with Chad's medical bills and recovery. He has a long recovery ahead of him and will be hospitalized for at least the next 3-4 weeks and will not be able to work for the next several months.

Chad will need to undergo multiple surgeries over the next several weeks; the first of which was successfully completed on Wednesday, July 19th.  The doctors were able to close many of the open wounds and secured skin grafts to most of his torso and arms.

He also suffered multiple finger breaks on both hands and a left broken wrist; all of which will require surgery within the next 3-5 days:

Next week he will undergo another surgery to address the extensive damage to his left knee along with some additional skin grafts to his legs and hands.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated .
