Help for Rich

Richard was in a severe accident on Saturday 9/30/17, while looking through his scope to shoot at jugs of water, the gun back fired, and the bolt went through his right cheek and exited through his neck. Being in the middle of nowhere it took life flight over an hour to get to him, while he had his hoodie wrapped around his head trying to keep his face together. Once he got to the hospital, they realized after The plastic surgeon stitched up his cheek, (from the inner corner of his eye 7 inches down his cheek, and then stitched the gaping 4 inch wound in his neck) with his right eye is swollen shut they didn't know if he still had his sight. He also has facial fractures to his right cheek bone. Richard is a single father to an amazing 10 year old little girl, who is his world. He works very hard to keep a roof over their heads and does whatever he can to help anyone he can, even after going through this horrific event he was telling the doctors he can't die because he has his daughter to take care of and he doesn't care if he loses his eye, he just wants to take care of Tori. He is a positive humble man who would put anyone else's needs before his and we desperately need assistance with his upcoming medical bills. Please share this information as much as possible.
