Help Support Dean Sleeper
Many of us know him as man like none other... witty, adventurous, and unbelievably kind and generous. He's spent his life making friends everywhere he's gone, riding bikes, building all sorts of things, cooking all sorts of things--and eating even more, and recently driving tractor trailers.
Dean found his passion and took on a brand new career at 40 years old. He worked incredibly hard for the last 3 years paying his dues in his industry and was able to start his own business as an Owner Operator in April. We had never seen him with such pride as he had in his truck. He named her "Doris" spoke of her often, took even more pictures, and would be caught outside at night just admiring her. He loves the business and the people he's met, the places he's seen, and his love of driving is unparalleled.
Just a couple short months later Dean was seriously injured when he was involved in a motor vehicle accident, rolling
his newly purchased Tractor Trailer. Dean sustained 5 broken vertebrae, 2 broken ribs and head and
neck injuries. He will be unable to work while he continues his recovery which is expected to last at minimum around 6 months, and it's still very unclear what that recovery will look like in the long run.
One of the hardest things to do is ask for help. We all like to think we can do it on our own. The reality is, when a tragedy strikes, most everyone will need to ask for help in one way, shape or form.
The Healthcare Industry is not what it used to be, and health insurance is just not enough. After many close friends and family have asked how they can help Dean while he is recovering, we have decided to set up a GoFundMe Account to assist him with the medical expenses, Physical Therapy, as well as the endless bills that don’t stop because you are unable to work.
