Helping Don and Melinda Craft

32800662_1536413862283299_r.jpeg     Don and Melinda Craft were involved in a terrible motorcycle accident in Ashville, NC on Sept. 7, 2018.  Both of them are in ICU with multiple injuries, broken bones and life threatening difficulties.  Don was in surgery for over six hours and both are facing more surgeries and months of rehabilitation if they survive this tragedy. 
     They are business owners in my home town of Martin, Ky and own and operate Fatboys Bar and Grill.  This is their livelihood and now both are critically injured.  They have two young girls in college at Morehead State University plus a team of employees that depend on them but that's not the end.  This couple does so much behind the scenes that no one knows about in helping the small community they work in and the people of Eastern Kentucky.  They have given to many in need and helped those that were struggling and  not once have they asked for anything in return.  They have opened their doors at the restaurant to many who were hungry and given jobs to those that needed a chance. 
     So please now in this time of need we need you to give back. 
They will have massive amounts of medical bills, travel, rehabilitation, business and other living expenses.  There oldest daughter Samantha is trying to work to keep the business going but she is also trying to be by her their side as they are were several states away when this tragic accident happened. 
     Don and Melinda are hard working, dedicated  people who had taken a small break to enjoy themselves.  Now they face a challenge to survive.  They are not the type of people to ask for help so I am asking for them.  Please donate to help ease the burden for them as I know they would be the first to help you.
