Help David Lindberg through his recovery

On Monday, March 4th, the unthinkable happened.  David had a ladder slip out from underneath him and fell about 20 feet landing on the hard concrete and metal ladder.  Him and his wife, Jolene, need your help!

After being rushed to the Cambridge Hospital, they tried air lifting him to HCMC in Minneapolis, but the weather was too bad.  Instead, they put a chest tube in him and drove him down as fast as they could.

He shattered his wrist, tore his diaphragm, had a collapsed and separated lung.  Could you imagine all this, just from a ladder fall?

After three surgeries, and 6 days in the hospital, the road to recovery is just starting.  David injured his nerve, and has no feeling in his left hand fingers.  David also can't lift anything heavy for at least a year, since he might tear his diaphragm again and could cause a hernia.

David is a kind, compassionate, caring individual, who is always there to lend a helping hand.  He is a full time EMT at an emergency room, and feels a desire to help others through their crisis.  Now he needs your support through theirs.

Please help David and Jolene with both their medical expenses, and the fact that as an EMT, David won't be able to work for some time due to the demands and lifting requirements of his job.

Give what you feel will benefit them, and if you can't give monetarily, offer a home cooked meal, a prayer, or to do work around their house.
