Fundraiser for James Dillon

On August 6th, two burglars came into our home in the early morning shortly after my dad came home from a night shift and my mom was getting ready for work. They came into our home and took both our car keys and home keys right before we became aware of anything. They then ran and got into one of our cars. My mom screamed for my dad and he came running out of the house to stop them. He held onto the hood of the car as they drove off with him on top. We are told he hung on for a mile before he was flown off the car. He is stable but in critical conditions. He suffered a fractured skull, ribs, shoulder, collar bone, and other lacerations throughout the body. What we are most worried about is his current brain bleed which is being monitored closely. We are happy he is stable, but he won't be able to work for a few weeks. My father is the most hardworking man I know and would do absolutely anything to protect his family. He is and always will be my personal hero.  With me going away to college,  I am worried about his recovery and how to financially give him the support that he needs.  All that our family asks is that you keep us in your prayers and any kind of donation would be so incredibly appreciated. We just want him back home and pray that he recovers soon. Thank you for all of your support.
