I am Jana Gilbert, and I am raising money for my brother-in-law Derrick Gross. Derrick was recently in a work related accident where he fell from a ladder from a story and a half. When he fell, his feet became trapped in the ladder and he fell on his back resulting in him breaking both feet and cracking his one of his vertebrae. Derrick is currently at UK Hospital trying to recover. Thank God, he isn’t paralyzed nor does he have a head injury. However, his feet are in bad shape. He has undergone surgery for one foot and will be undergoing surgery on the other when the swelling goes down. He is also in a back brace. His doctors tell him he will most likely be unable to work for 6 months. It is also unclear if he will ever be able to go back to doing vinyl siding. He is self employed and has no long or short term disability. It is going to be difficult for him to support his son and himself over the next year while he recovers. Derrick has worked hard over the past 5 years to establish himself as a contractor for vinyl siding so that he can support his son Jaxon. Derrick has been through quite a bit in his life but has managed with the help of Jesus Christ to turn his life around. He is now a loving father, uncle, brother, and son. He is active with the Revive Ministries here in Nicholasville, KY that ministers to those who are addicted to drugs or alcohol. Derrick is always willing to lend a helping hand and gives to many in need in our community. He is known and loved by all who know him and now he needs our help.
