Dessie Dorrian

Our brother Dessie was hit by a Metra train on the way back to Chicago on August 7th at 11:49 p.m.
He was life flighted to Advocate Cordell hospital where he survived. His injuries included broken ribs, a broken left leg, an amputated right leg (below the knee), all ribs broken and a shattered skull and brain injuries.
We all hope and pray he will make a full brain recovery, but it is still to early to tell.
We are starting this page to help with medical and travel costs.
Thank you for all prayers and funds.
