Firefighter father & daughter injured in wreck

My husband and daughter who are both firefighters were injured in a bad motorcycle wreck on Oct 8th at 1650, we had them airlifted to a Level 1 trauma center.  My daughter injured her hip and knee and has severe road rash. My husband sustained the more severe injuries while managing to hold our daughter on top of his body to protect her during the 10-15ft slide across pavement. His injuries include a broken clavicle, multiple rib fractures, lower left diminished lung sounds, a broken left fibula and severe road rash. A majority of the equipment needed to assist in his everyday ADLS are out of pocket expenses along with his medication. We are looking at potential clavicle surgery as well as physical therapy for an unknown amount of time at this point. I have taken off of work to help my family in their everyday needs. We do not ask that any one donate large amounts it can be even a $1 from someone. Anything and everything will help. My husband has the possibility of not being able to further his career as a firefighter anymore due to his injuries as we can not see into the future to determine the outcome of his healing and recovery process. We also ask for prayers as we travel through this unimaginable nightmare that could have taken my family from me. Thank you all and God Bless.
