Hi, my name is Lexi. My 20-year-old baby brother, Colton Brasier, was in a terrible accident two days ago. He is a plumber and was working when the air compressor on the company trailer ran out of gas. He went inside the trailer to fill it up; when he cracked the gas can open, flames instantly shot straight into his face. His entire face and body caught fire. He ran out of the trailer and stopped, dropped and rolled, then called 911.
As a result of this, Colton will have lifelong injuries. He is at the beginning of his life, and we don't want this setback negatively impacting his life. We want to get him the help needed to get back on his feet and continue to live his life as the hardworking, independent guy he is. Colton has second and third-degree burns all over his body. His beautiful face is burned severely. We expect workers comp will cover medical costs in relation to his hospital stays, but at this point, we have no idea how many surgeries and how much money it will take to try and make him whole again. We are thinking minimum hundreds of thousands of dollars. He will be in the hospital for a few months minimum. Worker’s comp will cover a small percentage of his wages during this time. Of course, being the hard-working man he is, our Colton bought a house at the very young age of 19 with no financial help from others. We are asking for your help to get him back on his feet, ease his financial burdens and get him the many specialty reconstructive surgeries he will need for his face and body. No money in the world will ever fix this, but as his big sister, I'm asking you to please donate anything you can to help this beautiful kid get back on his feet.
Colton is genuinely the sweetest boy. Even though he is a decade younger than me, I look up to him. He has already had to overcome some serious struggles in life. We are so proud of him. The kid is always putting others first and loves unconditionally. He doesn’t have a mean bone in his body. When he isn’t working 80 hours a week, you will ALWAYS find him helping others on his days off. One of my biggest concerns as a big sister that I've had for Colton ever since he was little is that he is TOO nice and loves people TOO much. He is the most Christ-like person I’ve ever met. Watching him having to overcome yet another obstacle in his life at this very young age breaks our hearts. Please share this with anyone and everyone you know, and PLEASE continue praying for Colton.
