Hope for Wade

My name is Sarah and I am Wade Semple's sister in law. In the very early morning hours of Friday March 4, 2016, after going to bed for the night Wade was found unresponsive by a close friend. The friend called 911 and Wade was eventually airlifted to the hospital. Wade is currently in the ICU at Brigham and Women's hospital in Boston, Ma  hooked up to life support. Wade had stopped breathing and his heart had stopped for an undetermined amount of time. His prognosis is unclear and we are taking it day by day.

As you can imagine, the cost of driving back and forth, paying for parking in the city and feeding themselves, his father Frank especially, has become quite a financial burden. They would never ask for help themselves but I know they are going to need it. We are unsure of the medical costs, as Wade was uninsured and recently became unemployed. We are working to complete the process of getting him health insurance that he had applied for before this unfortunate turn of events.

At this point, any and all funds raised will go towards getting his family to and from the hospital and covering any bills Wade might incur. Long term, Wade is most likely going to need rehabilitation and/or long term care.

The support we have received has been incredible and we thank everyone for everything they have offerred. From the hospital visits, to the babysitting so his siblings and girlfriend can be with him in the hospital, the prayers and well wishes, all of it is greatly appreciated. Please continue to pray and hold onto hope.

As you all know, Wade is unable to access these funds himself and I will be withdrawing the funds in my name and storing them in an account. I will be in charge of the funds raised through this  GoFundMe  and other fundraising efforts down the road. I will ensure that initially, Frank and the rest of the family get this money to use for gas and other out of pocket expenses that they are incurring daily. As time passes and decisions are made, we will being putting the money towards backing more fundraising efforts, medical bills and long term care and rehabilition if needed.  

Wade is a fighter and he WILL pull through this. HE'S A SEMPLE.
