Crushed by a Tree


25381344_1510800909.4273_funddescriptionJim Wilbur is a hard working member of the farming committee in white surfur.  He has done back breaking work for years to support his family and so many others. Jim was in the woods with his son, Joshua. A large tree fell the wrong way and he was crushed by it. The safety helmet Jim was wearing safed his life, however the extent of the damage would be realized in the ER. Jim has internal bleeding and severe nerve damage. Jim is facing a long road of numerous surgeries but there’s still no guarantee Jim will be able to walk again. We are asking that you help Jim and his family in their time of need. They need help with medical bills and loss of income.

Like so many others I am a long loved member of the Wilbur family. This family took me in, in my time of need with nothing but love. I will always be here for each and everyone of them so I am asking for your help. 

Every little bit counts.  Thanks in advance. 
Sincerely ,
The Wilbur Family.
