Help Gav’s Family due devastating accident

$27,455 of $90,000 goal

Raised by 352 people in 2 months
On the 14th May, Gav’s life changed forever.  He left his wife and five kids (18, 17, 12, 9 and 4) in the morning only to be flown out later that day in a helicopter, doctors fighting to save his life. 

He was trapped for over three hours in an auger machine.  One leg was severed below the knee and the other crushed.  He broke his back in seven places and cracked his pelvis.  The situation was so intense that he required immediate surgery, on the spot, in the dirty farm yard before being airlifted to Brisbane. 

So why are we asking for funds?  Chelle and the kids live at the base of the Toowoomba ranges.  This is a long way to travel twice a day to be near Gav.  In the short term, they need:

* immediate funds to rent a property close the hospital where Gav will require treatment for up to two years 
* bond
* money to buy new school uniforms
* rent money for the first six months

PLEASE HELP RACHELLE AND HER 5 CHILDREN MOVE CLOSE TO THE HOSPITAL BECAUSE HER HUSBAND IS IN INTENSIVE CARE - ONE LEG AMPUTATED, THE OTHER SEVERLY DAMAGED. HE HAS JUST CAME OFF LIFE SUPPORT BUT NOT OUT OF THE WOODS YET. 

The family cannot thank you enough for your support.

Happy to see Chelle lol
Someone is looking better today. Both amazing strong men ready for surgery. Gav has also made a friend who’s going through the sameish things he’s going through. It’s so good for both of them to have each other.
