Colleen Morgan Recovery Fund

On Saturday, August 19, my friends, Colleen Morgan and her fiance' Lance Gilson were leaving their home in Surfside Beach to attend a memorial service in Austin when their car was rear ended, jumped a curb and flipped into a ditch. The car was totaled and even though they both survived, Colleen has a broken ankle and back/neck trauma. Lance thankfully only suffered bruising and some cuts and scratches from busting out the windshield so they could escape.
They currently do not have medical insurance because Lance has not been back to work in his job as a journeyman pipe fitter (word is the new industrial construction project he has been waiting for starts hiring in a week or two). They of course have auto insurance and are pretty sure the guy who hit them was covered (just in case he wasn't they have Uninsured Motorist on their policy).
They live in a 5th wheel trailer with steps that Colleen cannot navigate with crutches because the airbags deployed and her chest was badly bruised so they need to temporarily move to a motel where she can roll around on the same level. No doctors will accept third party insurance so any medical expenses will be put on credit cards (which are limited).
I am starting this campaign to help them with expenses they need to cover now. Even though they have a good case they won't see any money for a long time.
Even though they hate to ask for help, if you know 

Colleen and Lance you know how generous they are with their time and energy to help others in time of need. Anything you can donate will be greatly appreciated.
