On Saturday, October 6th, John, Stacey, and Lillian’s lives changed. John was involved in a 4-wheeler accident. At first he felt ok but soon thereafter, he started to talk incoherently. Stacey, a GCEMS paramedic was working and didn’t know what happened. John’s friends called an ambulance after finding him injured. Stokes County EMS rushed him to Baptist. Stacey met them there. After several tests, it was determined that John had a brain bleed, a fractured skull, and a broken neck. He remained hospitalized for two days. The doctors likened his injuries to Shaken Baby Syndrome.
John is home and starting his long anticipated recovery. Due to the type of injuries he has, Stacey will need to take care of him around the clock. That means, Stacey, won’t be able to work. And as John recovers, he won’t be working either.
Let’s take care of this paramedic and her family! She helps members of our community through the worst days of their lives. Let’s help them get through theirs! Let’s make sure that Stacey and John don’t have to worry about everyday bills and mounting medical expenses!
