reamained in intensive care for over a month placed In medical induced comas both had brain trauma my stepmother Alice had to  have complete facial reconstruction and has lost 80% of vision in one eye and 40 percent of vision in another which made it impossible to ever return to her career and what she has just worked very hard at for 4 years and graduated with her masters degree since she was a full time student and doing an intern while going to college she did not have any benefits she was a major part of their income approximately 65 percent she is now on disability and has still not yet gotten a single checks my father also had brain trauma and had his right leg amputated at the knee this was devastating accident which has change their lives forever they had near perfect credit before the accident now they have none they have lost 65 percent of their income in the house that they work their whole lives for and it  is in jeopardy of going into foreclosure for they are unable to make the payments Alice will never be able to return to her career thus has been very difficult on them both mentally and physically they're both outstanding Americans love their country and law abiding citizens my father has always been the rock of our family the effect this has had on him has been very hard he was very active always working on projects keeping the house up helping neighbors whatever he could do to help anyone  my father was always there  he is now struggling with depression trying to move forward but the financial struggles are weighing heavy on the both of them  I would like to reach out and I ask that any help they could get to save their home would be deeply appreciated they really deserve something like this to happen.
