Recovery for Ernie

On August 26th while at his family reunion, Ernie was injured in a four wheeler accident.  He fractured and displaced his thoracic spine causing him to be paralyzed  from his chest down. He had to have surgery to decompress his spine and a rod placed. Ernie has a long recovery ahead of him. His life and his family's life have been changed forever. Unfortunately his recovery will be costly-medical bills, therapy, medical equipment, modifications to his house.

Ernie and his girlfriend also just found out that they are expecting a baby!! This young couple will need all the help they can get!

Please donate if you can to help Ernie out and hopefully relieve some stress for this family. Thank you!!

9/3/17 Ernie is now back home in Cleveland in a acute rehab facility. He is making great progress, with a few minor bumps in the road. He is in good spirits thanks to all the love and support he has received! Thank you to all who have donated already!
