Help David Recover From Accident

David Groeneweg, father, fiancé and friend, was in a traumatic motorcycle accident on October 9th, 2018 in Everett, WA. David made his best attempts to avoid a turning vehicle that had failed to yield but could not avoid the crash. Doctors stated the only thing that kept David alive during this crash was his helmet and road armor. Despite David’s extra protective riding gear, he suffered a shattered pelvis broke in multiple places, open femoral fracture requiring a rod fused between his hip and knee, lacerated liver and fractured vertebrae among multiple other minor injures and muscle damage. On October 10th, David was transferred to a top trauma hospital in our region underwent a ten-hour surgery. David is now recovering but still under close supervision for internal bleeding and infection. The donations raised by this campaign will help cover the long road of physical therapy and recovery David has ahead. Surgeons have told us that the best-case scenario will be David out of work for six months and no weight on his leg for 8 weeks. Your donations will help to cover David and his fiancé, Lindsey’s living expenses during this time. We know very little about the other driver at this time, but they were insured, and this will help offset some of the expenses but sadly not everything and not in a timely manner. We greatly appreciate any donations and prayers you feel are acceptable. Thank you, God bless.
