Dillon's Life Flight Fund

On November 22 at 2:55 pm, my spunky 10-year-old cousin Dillon was hospitalized after he and his bike flew off a 20-foot cliff.   He broke ribs, his left wrist at the growth plate, shattered his pelvis, bruised his lung and suffered a cracked sacrum and liver contusion.  His condition is stable  (no injuries to the head or spine, thankfully!), but a full recovery will take time and care.  Dillon will need a wheelchair for 5-6 weeks and an arm cast for longer.  Dillon is currently being attended at the Primary Children's Hospital in Salt Lake City.

We are hoping to raise $6,000 to help cover medical expenses, a small fraction of the total cost.  Dillon was carried to the hospital by an emergency Life Flight and underwent many tests and procedures.  Dillon is my little cousin.  I have always known him as a bright and energetic boy, and would love to see him and his family get through this.  My uncle has volunteered for Search and Rescue for many years... but he said it was unbelievable to see his own kid flown away.  Anything you can give towards his recovery would be so appreciated.  Thank you!

(His father, Olin Johnson, is the beneficiary of this campaign.)
