Ronnie Broussard Paralyzed

On the night of August 8, 2014, my husband Ronnie Broussard broke his neck and became paralyzed.  This night began our journey to an unexpected future.  Ronnie and I (Kim) have been married for 15 years and we have two young daughters that are 11 and 13.  We hope one day Ronnie will recover so he will be able to walk them down the aisle when they get married.  The night started out to be a friendly gathering of family and friends.  We watched football and barbequed.  Then the tradegy occurred.  We all decided to go swimming in the back yard.  Ronnie dove into the swimming pool instantly when he hit the water he was paralized from the neck on down.  At that point he was floating on top of the water and he was drowning.  We are so fortunate that one of our friends decided to get into the pool first and noticed something was wrong or we would be burying Ronnie this month.  Ronnie has had surgery to repair his spinal cord but this will be a long recovery with years of therapy.  Ronnie is lucky to be alive and we are praying for him to walk again.  With your help we could provide him with the treatment he needs to walk again.  The road ahead is rough and medical bills are overwhelming our family.  Please find it in your heart to donate to our family for medical bills. Thank you for your support.
