Medical Expenses for Karl & Debbie

Our friends Karl and Debbie Gietzen were involved in a serious car accident Saturday night, on their way home from dinner.  Karl has a concussion, broken right arm, several spots along his spine that are slightly fractured (starting in the neck working down to about the middle) his sternum is broken, and we haven't even begun addressing any soft tissue or ligaments at this point.  Debbie sustained most f her trauma to her chest and abdomen, and unfortunately it is more serious.  One lung was punctured, all her ribs are broken, she has four bowl perferations, a small liver laceration, and a huge hernia. She will probably be in the ICU for a week or so.

Anyone who knows Karl and Debbie, knows their happy go lucky carefree spirits.  They are the first ones to see the good in every situation.  They love life, and live it to the fullest.  I can't wait for them to get back to this, and their family.  Their family means everything to them.  

Because they have a long road ahead, I am hoping to help ease the stress of their medical bills and loss of wages.  I would love to be able to offer them some light during this darkness that has entered their lives right now.  Please help me raise money to help them with these expenses, and ease their stress so they can concentrate on healing and getting better.  Any donation will be greatly appreciated.  We are hoping to raise something ASAP, as Karl is without health insurance and needs to be able to receive care in a rehabilitation facility.  Thank you!
