Support the Gleaton Family

Edward Gleaton is a hardworking, self-employed contractor, devoted husband to his wife, Nicole, and dedicated father to their two children, Jackson and Abby.  While working a job on September 9, Edward sustained a 30’ fall off a roof onto a concrete parking lot. Initially, the doctors knew that Edward had a broken sternum, broken left femur, broken right tibia, had a pelvic fracture, broke both ankles and was bleeding internally from the hip fracture.  After his first surgery on September 10, the surgeon was able to straighten his leg bones and clean them out. However, he determined that the biggest issues will be the shattered left ankle and right heel bone that will each require more surgeries and bone grafts (he is in surgery for these procedures as I type this message on September 12).  Additionally, Edward’s pelvis separated from his spine, which will require a frame and plate to bind things back together. Edward will be immobilized for a minimum of 2-3 months, unable to bear any weight on his feet and, if you know Edward, he is NOT one to be idle!   The surgeon estimates that, between procedures and rehab, Edward’s out of work time will be 9 months to one year.  However, another realization is that Edward will very likely not be able to return construction.  With all of this in mind, we would like to show our support to Edward and Nicole by removing some of their financial burdens as they are down to one income and are incurring medical expenses.  Anything that you can contribute will be greatly appreciated, even if you can only offer your prayers.  Thank you!
