Eric's Hospital Fund

Eric was in an accident involving a drunk driver, and has been in the hospital for about a month. The driver totaled the car, fled the scene and left Eric and his friend Kiki unconscious, with no regard for their lives. His hospital bills are nearing $300,000 and he needs our help. We're hoping to raise at least $20,000 to assist with his bills. He's suffered traumatic brain injury, fractured spine, ruptured intestine, and shattered wrist. He's endured feeding tubes, stoma (colostomy bag for at least 3 months), several surgeries so far with more on the horizon, infection, pneumonia, severe pain, soft tissue damage, and loss of wages for a month with several months lost wages and rehabilitation in front of him. Please help in any way you can!

Edit: There were some changes made to more accurately reflect his injuries, and add some more detail to his story. 

I would also like to add that this find will go directly to an account for Eric, he is the sole beneficiary of this fund.

Thank you so much for your support, we're off to an amazing start, please continue your support by sharing his story and allowing this fund more visibility. Please share on Facebook!
