Damion was working on Wednesday, October 24th when a tragic chain of events resulted in Damion losing his lower left leg in a grain auger. Although worker's comp will help with most of the expenses, Damion needs help with additional medical costs and travel associated with the cost of this advanced prosthetic. The BioM will help him continue with the most uninterrupted activity level. I don't know how you can put a price on a leg, but somehow others can. I know I would give $80,000 to keep my leg, so to be able to have my brother fitted for a prosthetic that will ensure the most normalcy as possible for $80,000, seems attainable.
Damion has a five year old son and is extremely active. He has many interests that include, fishing, hunting, boating, swimming, hiking, running and playing with his dog and of course the endless activities and games that he plays with his son.
The leg is called BioM - made by a company called iwalk. More information about this company and their product can be found here:
I hope that those of you out there that may have experienced a tragedy like this or those of you that can empathize with this situation can appreciate the desire to be able to get Damion the best care and best prosthetic possible.
Damion amazes us with his strength and perseverance every day and I know that I along with the rest of our family are so grateful for the generosity of those that wish to help us reach this goal for Damion and for those of you that have already done so much with your thoughts and prayers.
I will send updates on his progress.
Thank you for the continued outpouring of love and support, it has been so appreciated.
