Gary Lavenduskey's Ride to Recovery/Rehabilitation

On the evening of October 1, Gary was on his motorcycle when he was struck by a drunk driver.  He suffered critical injuries and he almost died. His injuries are significant and include: open-book pelvic fracture, shattered humerus, and several fractured vertebrae.  Due to the extent of the trauma he has suffered and the severity of his injuries, his recovery will be prolonged and difficult.   When he is finally released from the hospital, he will have to go to a rehab facility, where his stay will likely be an extended one.  He will need help, patience, and understanding through this long process.  He would greatly appreciate any help you can offer in the face of this traumatic event. On his behalf, we extend our gratitude. Thank you!
