What a NIGHTMARE! :...(

This is our friend Ron Vanarsdale. He was involved in a terrible motorcycle accident on August 30th, days before his 37th birthday, where he was thrown over 300 feet, and by the grace of god, survived.
He was flown to Jersey Shore Medical Center for emergency surgery & kept in an induced coma in ICU for 2 weeks.
Week 3, he is now awake, still at JSMC, & breathing thru a trachea in his throat. Ron's right arm was severed, as well as his left wrist broken. He also suffers from severe brain trauma, as he will need extensive therapy and a prosthetic arm/hand.
As a mechanic by trade, Ron will not only need to pay medical bills & learn how to live with only 1 arm, but will not be able to work for a very long time. 
Ron has always been the "go-to" guy whenever you need help...willing to drop everything to lend a helping hand. Also, a father of 2 daughters ages 1 and 17 that need their daddy to get better...he desperately NEEDS our immediate help. 
The funds we are trying to raise will help offset some of his costly hospital bills & much needed recovery. 
Though every day he fights to walk, breathe and speak, the bills are piling up & Ron is left in a horrible nightmare.
Please, if you cannot donate, please just say a prayer for Ron <3
