Charlie's Accident Fund

Charlie is my brother in law,  he was going to a job interview when he got in an accident; a pick up truck had ran the stop sign and hit him. Charlie, who was driving his motorcycle, was thrown 8 ft away from the accident scene. He had to be airlifted to the nearest hospital. He had undergone a number of surgeries since the same day of the accident, including a reconstructive face surgery that lasted 12 hours.  He has had a few complications while in ICU, he suffered a stroke and was not able to breath on his own.  The doctors told us that is a miracle he survived the accident. 

Charlie is currently in stable condition in a Rehabilitation Hospital. He is not able to move much due to his injuries. 

The road to recovery is long, and he will need physical and speech therapy as well as a second face surgery.  His medical insurance will cover some of the expenses but not everything. Your generosity will help offset Charlie's medical needs in the upcoming weeks. My sister and Charlie are extremely grateful for any gift that is contributed as this will give them the push needed to move forward during this time.
