Help Charlie get back walking!

Hi, my name is Charlie Arrington III and on May 21, 2017 I was severely injured in a motorcycle accident. Another rider ran into my bike, which caused me to be thrown off and severing my left foot. Initially, my foot was reattached with no problem and I was sent home to recuperate. It was only after a week that I started to feel bad and was taken back to the ER, where I learned that I had a high fever and developed an infection in my left foot. On top of the infection, the skin around my left foot was "dead" and would now require surgery to remove the necrotic skin. Unfortunately, after 8 additional surgeries, a skin flap, leech therapy and numerous consultations, I learned that my only option was to have my lower left leg amputated, which was done on July 12.  Also Before my accident I was working at Harley Davidson as a parts associate, I will be off work with no income for about 6 months. Now this will not be an easy battle for me but it will be one that I win. The outpouring of calls, texts and emails have not gone unnoticed, it has truly helped me during this difficult time. Any donations made will help me with my future rehab and medical expenses for my prosthetic. Thanks in advance to everyone.
