Help Jeremy after his accident

On the night of July 3, 2014, my son, Jeremy, 23, was stopped at a red light and was hit head-on by an uninsured 62 year old lady, traveling 45 mph, who had passed out behind the wheel due to drugs. In being hit head on, he was pushed into a car that was stopped behind him. He was hit so hard that his keys and the inside of his iPhone was even bowed and had to be replaced. He really doesn’t know how he was able to walk away with his legs still attached to him and/or not broken.

He has massive sprain and strain in his lower back, his muscles, the doctor describes, look like a hair scrunchy, and bulging disc, they are doing all they can to prevent from becoming herniated! We had NO idea he would be out of work this long. His doctor had released him, part-time, on a trial basis on a Tuesday, went back for his next appointment the following Friday and the doctor revoked that release due to upper back and neck issues appearing.

His g/f has the only income right now, and they have fallen behind on all their bills. Not only is she the only income, she is a full time grad school student. They used her school money to pay what bills they had to pay to keep from being evicted and/or utilities disconnected.

As we all know, it’s hard enough to stay above water sometimes when we have our income but when you are without that primary income, especially for reasons beyond our control, it makes it real difficult. If you find it in your heart to be able to help my kids, it would be so appreciated! Let's show him how much he is loved and whether it is $5, $10, $25, or $100, ANY donation will help and be greatly appreciated! I thank you in advance and all money raised will go directly to Jeremy to help with expenses, medical bills, and lost wages.

(The key shown in this pic was his back end key and was just hanging on his key ring and it still bowed that much!)
