Dave Irby's Recovery Fund

on March 21, 2018, Dave Irby suffered an injury that resulted in surgery to both arms and six days in a hospital in Provo, Utah. He was a thousand miles from home, working, and sending the money back to his family. The injury occurred just two weeks before Dave worked long enough to be eligible for health insurance at his new job. 

Dave now has 8 screws in one arm, and 6 in the other. He's in double slings, making even the simplest task very difficult. His wife, Desi, must take care of him full time and therefore cannot work at this time. 

The stress on this family is incredible. Can you help? Even the smallest monetary support can be of assistance. The money will help ease the pain of a massive medical bill including two surgeries and multiple x-rays, getting Dave from Utah to Indiana by car, rehabilitation expenses, and household bills.
