Help David with physical therapy

Meet David Yarber, David turned 77 years old in May of 2017. David was born with cerebal palsy and has over come so many obstacles that most of us take for granted every day. On July 1, 2017 David was struck by a drunk driver while riding is handicap tricycle in a cross walk and two weeks later still in the hospital not able to walk. David is in need to go to a live in physical therapy facility to get the therepy he needs to help him walk again. The  hospital bills have already exceeded the Medicaid allowance and they refuse to pay for such facility. David lost his last living sibbling 3 months ago and has no immediately family to help care for him.  I have known David for 30 plus years and thru  the years I have gotten to know him pretty good. David is by far the most kindest and selfless person I have ever met. Among his independence he put him self thru college, held a job with Bonneville Power for over 30 years and has never asked anyone for a helping hand. David belongs to several organizations to help others in need  and faithfully attends church.  Please find it in your hearts to help David get back his independence like he had before he was struck  by someone that was stupid enough to get behind the wheel while intoxicated and cause so much physical harm to another human being.
