Help get Schammy back on his feet

First off, I want to thank everyone and anyone who will take the time to read this post. Second, I am writing this on behalf of the Koose and Schambach family, a member of the family was recently in a life-altering motocross accident. My brother-in-law, Matt Schambach, crashed his motocross bike competing in the sport he loves on October 7th. This left him with a major break in his left leg and shattered his left knee. Matt had surgery to successfully reconstruct his knee and lower leg. He now has 9 very large screws and a plate on either side of his leg from the top of his knee to mid-calf. Due to the severity of the injury, Matt will be unable to work for a minimum of 6-8 months and will be completely immobile and non-weight bearing for approximately the first 3 months of his recovery. Matt will eventually make a full recovery but it will be a long and slow journey and could take up to a year. Due to this he is unable to work and help provide for his wife and two children. 

My sister, Patsy, and Matt have always been a two income household and this life altering injury will affect the family in many ways including financially. Therefore, I am asking you to give a donation to help them through this tough and unforeseen situation. No amount is too small and if you are not in a situation to do so or do not feel comfortable doing so please at least share this post. Thank you all for your time and please send love, good thoughts and prayers to the Koose and Schambach family!33721816_1539471683164052_r.jpeg33721816_1539471696952359_r.jpeg
